I just couldn't do it ... scum. What a mediaeval country that place is ... let alone the obvious history, their treatment of women is appalling.


I feel the same but the wife wants to go & it's only for a day & a half. I'll not spend a dime there that's for sure ;)

Apart from that, I've also spent a fair amount of time in France (had a French gf for ten years), been to Spain four or five times, Germany three times, Italy twice, Scotland and Ireland a couple of times, Wales more times than I'd like and Greece once.

For the future, I'm going to Portugal for a few days in a fortnight - with Bugsy and Tommy Lamph from the leedsunitedfanclub site. We're hoping to see Sporting v Benfica as we'll be in Lisbon for that weekend - a massive derby !! - but may well end up seeing either Vitoria Setubal or Estoril if we can't get tickets for what should be a sell-out.

I went to Berlin with them both a year or so ago as well as regularly meeting up either down south or for Leeds matches, and funnily enough we had a conversation about a year ago about where we'd like to go if we could choose anywhere. Tommy Lamph's real name is Terry and he travels four or five times a year, mostly to bonkers non-mainstream places like Belize, Israel, Peru and - jealous! - Cuba.
To a man, we all said "Japan!" so that's our next trip. We're gonna discuss it on this break and see how we feel about it - how long we'll go for, when, etc - but I can't wait to go there. I love technology, gaming and anime plus really like how they're nuts for rock-n-roll and karaoke in general and I think some of the women are the most beautiful on the planet :D

I think I'll stop there ! :o



Your quite right on Japan Rigger, that’s my next trip I'm planning with my gf and her sister in December..... Really cant wait for it.
The first few days around Tokyo really will be memorizing!!!

Any reason why you haven't really been around East Asia?


No real reason just not got round to it yet. Thailand is high on the bucket list.

Ilkley Moor would do.

When we retire in about 6 years, I aim to visit as many capital cities in Europe as possible. I love the history of it all, the museums, the historic buildings and nightlife, I can't wait. Rome and the Coliseum is my number one place I have to visit, I'm a massive Roman history fan.
