I have a number of things I really enjoy, some I can discuss, others...less said and all that old game.

Ok Travel.......

I've been on Pinterest and StumbleUpon and found some absolutely beautiful places to visit.

Where would you recommend and why? Or where would you love to visit and why?

Skoob,

We travelled to a few places in Italy.

I can recommend Amalfi, Positano and Ravello. They're just a little further south from Naples.

Beautiful scenery, pretty cobbled streets, full of history and the odd star or two...especially Positano.

My favourites:

Rome - History, culture, madness, and Fabio's fabulous pizzas from the restaurant by Piazza Bologna metro station. Nicks it by a whisker from Barcelona.

Barcelona - Magnificent architecture, 24 hour madness, football at the Camp Nou, Gaudi, Picasso, and spectacular views over the city from Montjuic. Not forgetting the Cafe De L'Opera, and the chippy in Rambla Del Raval.

New York - Big loud and brash. And cold if you go at Christmas like we did.

Florence - Probably the friendliest people in the world.

Paris - Not as romantic as Rome in my opinion, but still pretty cool. Providing you don't click your fingers at waiters and call them 'Garcon!' That's when they get rude.

Blackpool - Just kidding there.

Brighton - Perfect fish and chips opposite the pier.

York - Sitting outside the pub by the river on a sunny summer day. And the free chicken in the Robin Hood pub, where the locals are so friendly.

Burnley - Where you can get into a fight at any given bus stop at six am.

That's me done.

Skoob.

RIP

Rome is fab. We only got 3 hours there and had to run around the few sites we got to see. I really want to go back for a week or so, do a spot of meandering and people watching.

Cuernavaca, Mexico - about 20 years ago before the whole drug trade got scary and dangerous

Taxco, Mexico - a lovely smaller town an hour or so away from Cuernavaca

Guanajuato, Mexico - one of the coolest places I've ever been to

Victoria, BC, Canada - I would live there if I could

Grand Canyon - words cannot describe how amazing it is

Austin, Texas - no cooler town in Texas that Austin!

Oh. They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.

America has some wonderful places, Ellie. Every type of scenery. There's something for everyone over there. I loved living there. You're lucky.

Right I must get some sleep and the Baileys ran out ages ago.

As a jobbing mechanic I've been lucky enough to travel extensively and I must say that along the way I've met a number of extremely interesting people. Here's just a few that I've encountered during my nomadic existence:

The Duke Of Cambridge

The Marquis Of Granby

The Earl of Essex

The Prince Of Denmark

The Duchess of York

The Duke of Wellington

The Blind Beggar (lovely geezer but not too clever at darts )

The Lord Rodney

The Queen of Hearts

The Bishop's Finger. (fuck knows where the rest of him was)

The Jolly Sailor

All absolutely charming hosts who have sportingly turned a blind eye when I've vomited on their carpets on taken a sensible young lady into their conveniences for a large one.

Travel?....you can't beat it folks! (hic)
