    Not sure about Valletta mind. Some lovely churches but not that many bars / restaurants.
    Off to Barcelona this week. Haven’t been for about 10 years, so any suggested would be appreciated.
    Would concur with Prague & Rome. Both easy to walk around.
    Düsseldorf is nice but full of German hen & stag do’s copying British stag do’s.
     
  2. Nope, That was quite clearly the price.

    I frequented the same place for almost 9 months when I worked in Munich 10 years ago, and they were never exactly giving the stuff away then either

    I've already got one layabout, I don't need another, lol

    We have SAFSEE loaded on an Android box and our local bar lets us watch it on there.

    Berlin. Went last month and it's easily the best European city i've been to. I fucking loved it.

    Everything. Plenty of history/culture, great bars and restaurants, coffee shops were fantastic. Absolutely class place.

    Where are you staying, Mitte? Commonground and Distrikt Coffee for breakfast, both fantastic. Commonground is really good on a night for drinks as well. Zola Pizza is tremendous as well but it's a bit out of the way, worth the hike though.

    Oh and avoid Checkpoint Charlie like the plague, absolute load of shite.

    Near Potsdammer platz, i'll make a not of the places you mentioned, cheers

    Checkpoint Charlie, just too touristy?

    Yeah it's crap, full of fake soldiers trying to get your money for a photo. We went to the East Side Gallery, the Holocaust memorial, the Berlin wall memorial, and were going to do the Topography of Terror but we were knackered by that point because we had walked everywhere (walked nearly 30 mile each day, my achilles is still hurting :lol:.) Make use of the subway when doing the sights, your legs will thank you for it.

    If you like burgers go to Supreme Burger Grill as well, one of the best i've ever had.

    Christ 30miles is a hell of a slog

    Was gonna ask why you didn't use the train :)

    Make the same mistake everywhere we go, only start using it when we’re too knackered to walk anymore. My leg gave out from under me in Central Park last year cause we had walked that much, our lass turned round and I was in a heap on the floor :lol:.

    Same, wouldn't be top five for me. Probs not top ten. Always interesting to hear why people love it. Think I'm going back later this year for a piss up so maybe I'll see it in another light.

  18. Anyone ever done a Groupon European Weekend away, and was it ok? Seen great prices for Barcelona and Rome etc, but a bit wary of them
