      ... was simply destroyed by rubbish being tipped from trucks and the stench was unbelievable.

      Many of the roads are not on satnav systems and most do not have signs so one has no idea where to go.

      Croatia was always one of my top country's but sadly it looks since they were given European status it has gone down. Before it had its own charm and most cars etc were cheap old bangers etc. Now the car market is all coming from ...

      ... hammering a nail into his nose, I wanted to leave already. There was a few 'sick' magic tricks, and some fun ones too, there was a singer (dirty of course), and someone doing berlesce.

      ... I used to, but I was most definitely crying internally when Dave and I hugged Helen not once, but twice, each. It was very hard to say goodbye. I enjoyed traveling with a girlfriend for several days and she was much more than just a tour guide for Dave and I. Dave and I checked into the hotel, had a great dinner in their hotel restaurant and tried to get to sleep for an early morning tomorrow as we put an end to our first Scottish journey. OUR HOSTESS: Afternoon Tea ...

      ... definitely a school that inspired Hogwarts. It is old and spooky and gorgeous. We weren't allowed inside, as classes were in session, but the security guard let me walk up the drive way to take some photos. He also told us about another school that was similar in architecture, but it had recently been closed down and is now for sale. So we walked about twenty five minutes until we came upon, what can only truly be described as Hogwarts. It took ...
