Long shot I'm sure but any Leeds fans on here or anybody you know in the Philippines? I'm a British expat who immigrated here a few months ago. I tend to be the only Leeds fan in the bar when a game is on.....

Send Cork White a PM mate.

Well reckon there isn't too many well known towns I've not been to in England but will be adding one in October with Henley on Thames.
Not staying there just going to look around a property that's going to be a new fine dining restaurant (know the owner).
Of course will be visiting again once it opens (early next year?} to check out the food. :D

After 3 days in San Fran we are heading north over the Golden Gate and into wine Country.

Staying tonight in place called Eureka.

Great city San Fran but one of the most expensive places in America spent a small fortune on food and drink. Thought New York had high prices but this place is on another level. £7 for a beer they need a Wethrspoons :o

Just about to leave Seattle after 3 nights here, another worth a visit.
Epic road trip here from San Fan amazing scenary from wineries to giant trees to stunning coast along with mountains, lakes and crazy rivers. Add to that a couple of volcanos along with plenty of wildlife including Elk, Whales, Eagles etc. But not too keen on the snake that slithered past about 2 inch from me :shock:

Was going to Edgbaston for the 4 days but after the dross of the last two games am taking my lovely lass to Scarbados for three nights. Donkey rides, amusement arcades, sticks of rock & lashings of candy floss I know how to show a girl a good time.

I’ll see thee :D

No we didn't WW but think I know where you mean as believe we walked past it on our last day.
First night we arrived late after travelling up from Portland via a few interesting stop offs so ate at our hotel.
2nd day morning had a tour og the Boeing factory then after getting back went to the area around the Space needle then down to Pike Place market. Ate at a restaurant recommended not too far from hotel.
Last day we spent exploring including going up the interesting Smith Tower (first skyscraper but now dwarfed by others) before early evening moving hotel to one at the airport (as had a early afternoon flight and our organised part of the holiday only involved two nights with the tour group). Believe it our not ended up eating in a fantastic Thai restaurant near the airport.

Not sure when you were there but they have knocked down the ugly viaduct (road) between the market and bay front. Going to develop it into gardens apparently.
I had been before but over 10 years ago, lots of new buildings gone up.

Good English Pub Grub tonight as staying in London before train home tomoz. Just arrived back in England's Green and pleasant land a couple of hours ago.
