Eurostar are running several trains over the next few weeks sans alcohol.

As opposed to the Tunnel being breached.

It's impossible to say Gdansk out loud without then repeating it several times to the Pink Panther theme. FACT.

Why did I only recently learn about Rome2Rio? It's great for planning routes that aren't covered by the ever-brilliant seat61.com. And, of course, good for giving me even more ideas for holidays.

Going to Croatia in July! I don't normally travel in peak season but I'm too busy in May and June and didn't want to wait until September. I'm looking at Split and Dubrovnik, with overnight stays in Munich and Zagreb on my way there, and a night ferry to Italy plus night in Turin on the way back.

Anyone else got anything fun lined up?

I going to a wedding in Cyprus in the summer, and will be spending a week at an all-inclusive hotel. My +1 is a bit of a minger, though.

On the first day I got half a tan from lying in one position.

Just come across 'The Basetrip'. Looks to be useful site, giving key information about holiday destinations, such as average costs, power adaptors, and weather. Bookmarked.

Apparently beer is 46% cheaper in Split, Croatia, than in Oxford.

That website has informed me that I don't need to take a power adaptor to Cyprus this summer. Good work, that website!

Oddly, it doesn't mention anything about languages.

I have checked a few and it does

Quote:
Bangladesh

Dhaka is the capital city of Bangladesh.

Official language is Bengali. Bangladesh uses metric system (kilograms, centimeters, °C). Current time in Dhaka is 18:35 which is 5 hours ahead of London.

Oh, okay. You'd expect them to say "X% of people speak [the language you're visiting from]" though.

Doing nothing this year :(

Our new baby is a bit of a nightmare, screams most of the day and night, nothing wrong with him he just has very bad wind.

Health Visitor told my wife that long babies (which apparently he is) that have fast delivers are more prone to this.

Was planning a week in Wales with my parents but cancelled it as its not really fair to subject them to a screaming baby for a week.

Also having to take the next 5-10 Wednesdays off work as holiday to give my wife a hand as she has both kids at home that day.

Still on the bright side, weather is set to be like Spain for the next 10 days were we live!

That's what they said about Olly - he had CMPI.

My wife is breastfeeding and cutting out some dairy from her diet to see if there is a change.

I'm not suggesting he has the same thing (bla bla not a doctor) but if she wants to trial an exclusion diet to see if it helps she'll need to cut out all dairy.

Hivemind: has anyone used an outdoor activity holiday firm before? I'm kind of tempted to go hiking in the Atlas Mountains (or something similar) next year and think I'm probably better off doing it through an organised group rather than going solo.

Guy at work used one to hike to Everest base camp said it was really well done and the people he went with were great. He had to be flown down by helicopter some way from base camp as he couldn't handle the altitude but other than that it was a great trip!
