Please do elaborate. Im considering taking advantage of their deals. I have heard the customer service is atrocious and that delays are inevitable.

The Travel Thread

I'm posting from my phone so I'll elaborate more in the morning, but the flight out was a train wreck, the flight back a joy.

Aside from all that, had a kick ass time in Denver and am quite serious about moving there soon.

Tower Bridge, Tower of London (they're right next to each other)

Definitely walk around the Millenium Bridge area as well, there's a skate park with an outdoor market and a bunch of cafes that are fun to check out. Very cool vibe and your little one will probably like watching the skaters.

There's also the London Eye (a giant Ferris wheel) and carousel next to all of that. Big Ben is in that area as well, you can't miss it, as well as Westminster Abbey.

Definitely go down to watch the changing of the guards by the Royal Palace at some point. That will also score you major dad points with your mini me.

You're going to quickly find you're in an amazing city. Enjoy!

I've been all over lately.

April 8-12 I was in Las Vegas for my future brother in law's bachelor party. April 16-19 I was in Boca Raton with all of my college friends for our friend's wedding. Sunday I'm taking a cruise with the gf to Bermuda for a week. Been a pretty awesome month so far.

Awesome boss. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

I was only there once, in 93. In addition to what Josh said, I'm sure you probably plan on trekking out to Stonehenge, and the town of Bath was a really cool town in the countryside that we visited.

Have a great time!

It really is awesome, isn't it? When I went I really only landed in London because it was an easiest and cheapest way to access the rest of Europe. But by the time I had to leave, I didn't want to. I could have spent two weeks there. It's such a massive, clean, friendly, interesting city.

If I were to rank all of the cities I've visited in Europe...

100% want to visit again
Prague
Berlin
London

If given the option, would visit again
Vienna
Brussels (average city, AMAZING beer scene!)

Fun, but once was enough
Munich (outside of Oktoberfest, didn't seem that interesting).
Antwerp
Amsterdam (fun, but a little overrated as the locals aren't too accommodating to tourists. It's also so small that you can see everything there is to see in like 2-3 days)

Every one of those cities was great. But when I compare what I loved about them all, Amsterdam actually feels like the least likely place I'd visit a second time. London was THAT good that I think it's up there with the best.

And I have to say this just because I'm Josh.0 and it's what I do.

The women in central Europe (Prague and Vienna, in particular) make you reconsider everything you ever thought you knew about what makes a woman "perfect." I've said it once, and I've said it again: spend a week around Czech and/or Austrian women and you will never look at American women the same way ever again.

Their combination of insane natural beauty, friendliness, and positivity tied to such a humble attitude will absolutely floor you. At least compared to a lot of women here in the northeast. A "10" here is an "8" there, and a "10" there will sit down, split a bottle of wine with you, shoot the shit for a few hours, and never once make you feel like you have to treat her like a princess. There's a mutual respect between both sexes embedded within their culture; men treat women well and women treat men well. There's no sense that either sex is superior or "owes" the other one anything; the relationships are truly organic. It was so refreshing to see a part of the world that manages to live that way.

I'm not saying there aren't women like that in the northeast, I'm just saying they're not NEARLY as common as they are in that part of the world. For every one you see here you'll see 50 over there.

I completely agree. Northeast US women need to realize that they aren't the greatest in the world. Luckily, I was able to find an amazing girl here who doesn't act like that.

Not sure it's technically considered "travelling," but for us, it's an hour or so north of where we are, so we'll take it. I rented a cabin nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains for me and the lady right on a creek. Looking forward to setting my chair in the water, blasting some tunes and slugging some cold beer:

That looks fantastic!

How long will you be there? That looks like one of those places that would nice to get away to for several weeks - just to turn off the world for a while.

I think I mentioned this in another thread, but I just booked my third trip to Europe. Three nights in each; I leave in late October and return in November: Lisbon -> Madrid -> Barcelona -> Copenhagen.

Can't wait to go back!

It really was an awesome cabin, totally relaxing. Funny enough, it was even cozier than the pictures lead you to believe but that was fine since it was just the two of us. We were there Friday afternoon around 3PM and left yesterday (Sunday) at 12PM, so it was a quick weekend trip. We got NAILED with torrential downpours Friday evening/night and then some more Saturday at some point, but we made the best of it and had a great time. It would have been WAY worse had it not had a covered porch. We were able to spend a little bit of time in the creek/river that's pictured, slugged MANY kind beers, listened to tunes and chatted quite a bit so all in all, a great weekend. To make up for the lack of sufficient aquatic time at the cabin, after we checked out, we decided to go tubing on the Toccoa River in Blue Ridge, GA on the way back home to enjoy the abundant sunshine that finally decided to roll in.

All that being said, today consists of a heavy dose of the Monday "back-to-work" blues followed by unpacking, laundry from the weekend, etc. BUT at least it's a short week!

Glad the trip to the cabin was fun. I'm really into camping and getting away from the noise so trips like that are right up my alley.

I've been daydreaming about Prague all morning. I want to go back so badly. There's nothing like it on earth. I was thinking about how it's such a shame that there are people who can afford it that will never really go out and explore the world. It really is the best part about being alive. There's so much cool stuff out there that makes life infinitely more interesting than whatever it is we each do every day.
