Well done that man !! ...  the castle and the bridge were both used in GoT !

 

I asked a woman who was with us what they were used as in the series ..   she said ..   I haven’t actually watched it but I believe the castle was where the Iron brew family lived ..   lollol

We did a Game of Thrones coach tour round the Antrim coast the other week, along with the Giant's Causeway. Would recommend it if even you don't like GoT. Some of the scenery round there is fantastic. Also got to visit the village of Carnlough, hometown of Brendan Rodgers!

 

Belfast itself is great. If anyone goes there, I'd recommend doing a taxi tour of the Falls Road/Shankill Road murals. We did it with this guy, Jim. Some of the stuff he tells you just makes your head spin, but well worth a couple of hours of your time.

Prob been asked before but anyone recommend Krakow? How much is a pint and average meal? Also is it worth going?

 

Krakow is awesome. Make time to get the bus to Auschwitz if you've not been. It's a tough trip for the day but it's an important place to visit. 

 

Check out the Salt Mines nearby for a slightly less daunting trip out.

Off to Budapest a week on Tuesday, really looking forward to it as it’s somewhere I have wanted to go to for a while.

I haven't been to North East Europe much, apart from Latvia. Would like to explore it more. Looking forward to your dispatches.

Thinking of going to Lisbon around May next year for  4 or 5 days, has anybody been? 

Yeah, it’s cheap.

 

I would say 4 days is more than long enough for it.

Lehuto is the best place for beer from my experiences, definitely worth checking out

They sell a lot of local craft beers in there, some are very decent. The chaps who work there are very helpful too and will recommend you beers based on what you already like

Only 3 nights so I’ll be leaving just as you arrive I guess. Wish I could have done a couple of days in Vienna myself but the Wolves game being moved meant I couldn’t.

 

Really looking forward to it though, I’ve heard great things.

Went in March this year and really loved the place.  Stayed in the old quarter.  Really easy to get around - v good public transport.  Lots to see. Good food, friendly people etc.

 

I asked a similar question and got loads of good info and advice from this thread, so if you search you'll see for yourself.

 

Let me know though if you want any other info.

 

Enjoy!

That's a great price. I assume you're going outside of term time?

Found out Ferencváros are playing Dinamo Zagreb in the champions league play off while I’m there. Had to pay for bloody VIP tickets though but not to be missed.

Both the home support and away support will be at it for that, definitely worth it.

Yeah it’s going to be carnage but I think I’ve got a free bar so I probably won’t survive till kick off anyway.

@Dr The Singh I read earlier before the site crashed that you're in Valencia next week and asked about food and drink. There's literally thousands of places, where abouts in the city are you staying?

I think that hotel is just over the other side of Turia park. Not too far out though so a decent spot. The better tapas places in the old town are in the back streets and away from the main Plaza de la Virgen, which is stunning mind.

 

Taberna El Olivo is good for tapas. It's a small bar next to an olive tree surrounded by graffiti covered walls in back streets..My missus always insists we go there..Tasca Angel is also a cool place but not very pretty at all. Looks just like a take away but the food is great..Fried sardines and a beer standing at the bar is great.

 

Market de Colon is a nice place for a drink at night. Beautiful old building that host loads of bars doing all sorts of drinks/food. Go when it's dark as well as looks even better at night.

 

Russafa is probably a 30 minute walk away from that hotel but a must for at least one evening. Thursday, Friday and Saturdays are the best nights to go and hang out at some of the many many bars and cafe's. There's a bar called La Bella de Cadiz in Russafa. Probably the most eclectic bar I've ever been in. Mainly cocktails and another bar the missus always insists on going to. Nice staff but closed Monday/Tuesday. 

 

Patacona beach at night have loads of bars in the sand and a nice way to watch the sun set..Easy bus or taxi there. 

 

It is literally like an.oven here atm though.
