    My friends from Germany are visiting me 2 times a year. I always book a place for them in aston hostel. Never had problems with accomodation. My buddies claim it's quite clean and cosy.

    It’s horses for courses ennit?

    I like Wales, well I would, and Llandudno (say it like “clan dud no”) is well deserving of the title of queen of North Wales resorts. A well preserved Victorian sea side place if you like that sort of thing.

    A place that might be called “Llareggub” rather than as it is if you’re looking for an active holiday (you need to know about Under Milk Wood to understand that!) but if it’s what you like it’s great.

    The weather is best described as Welsh though, so it’s Tenerife for me for a bit of Sun Sand and Sangria.

    Or Hahnenklee for a shopping trip close to Christmas. Lovely place to stay, handy for Hanover and Goslar, and a smashing drive from Calais through the nice bits of Europe to the Harz Wald.

    AS for the Isle of Man, it’s pants. Over priced, dirty, nothing to do, and very rude people everywhere.

    Some nice to your face, but horrid behind your back. The most helpful people there are foreign workers.

    Well, I have never been to Wales, but if you claim it's a cool, i think i'll consider checkin it out.
    Could you please paste some photos, or website links?
    I wander who are those helpful foreigners? Polish? Ukrainian? Russian?

    When I say cool I mean it’s usually cold. And damp. Whenever you see green fields and clean sheep it means it usually rains.

    The green fields of Wales are legendry, and the sheep are spotless.

    Our weather isn’t the best in the world, we get a great deal of rain because of our geographic location and the effects of the mountain ranges creating a rain deposition zone when the wind is from the South West and has come across the Atlantic.

    Our prevailing wind is South West.

    Wales is a great place, if you want a very quiet holiday but it’s not good if you want a bit of night life. Not that there isn’t any, just that it’s hard to find.

    Here’s a link to the Llandudno web site http://www.llandudno.com/ but I would point out that it’s nescessery to undertand what’s written about the place.

    For example when it says “Llandudno has kept its Victorian and Edwardian elegance and splendour, despite its modern attractions” what it means is that the bloody place has hardly changed in the last hundred years except for a few new shop fronts and a swimming pool.

    Not that is a bad thing, if you like quiet traditional British sea side “bucket and spade on the sand” holidays.

    Wales is unquestionably a beautiful place to visit though the South is spoiled by industrial scars. I wouldn’t live anywhere else.

    But be warned. Like anywhere in Britain you’ll get ripped off (the British seem to use the same word for “foreigner” as “victim”) and the food will be ……… variable. Best stick to Chinese “carry-out’s”. Accommodation will also be …… variable, and very expensive for what you get.

    Here’s another site, this time about the whole of Wales, http://www.visitwales.co.uk/ and here’s a site that covers the day to day things going on http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/

    AS for the Isle of Man (A MUST avoid) the foreign staff who were most helpful there were the young Polish people and the young Spanish and Portuguese all of who seem to have been lumbered with the work the Manx can’t or won’t do.

    your buddies are God damn right! :) I've been to Poland twice, first time when I got there I booked a single room in Aston Hostel and it was pretty cool, so when next time I got back with friends of mine we returned, because it was already checked by me the last time and we were sure that it's going to be allright :) and it was :)

    well you tell me
    Calella, Spain an hour north of Barcelona on the east coast. Have been there several times on vacation. I love laxing on the beach with a cold glass of cola after a long winter here in the cold north.

    Favorite European Vacation Spot

    Barcelona is amazing and offers a great mix of attractions including architecture, monuments, museums, city life, nightlife and beaches. It is one of my favorite destination.

    Yeah Spain was awesome, especially Barcelona. France is cool too; I actually like the southern Mediterranean coast area and Provence better than Paris. Italy is one of my favorite places, but it doesn't feel the same as it used to when I went there when I was younger. Took a trip out to Greece recently also and the sea there, as well as nightlife and island culture, is pretty tight.

    Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    This city, full of colorful homes, canals and bridges, is one of Europe's most picturesque capitals.

    When I was working in Winnipeg I was next to Czech who was a great talker. We hardly did any work and nobody said anything. Of course I left as I wanted some working experience. Anyway, he lamented how Canada was a cultural desert as there was no night life after work. He told me about Europe and the wonderful night life there and especially Spain. He said it was deserted and so a great place for a beach summer vacation and it was incredibly cheap. Of course this was around the time of the spaghetti westerns. Now I know Sean Connery has a home in Spain maybe near a beach.

    I'm planning 10 days in Amsterdam, next month. I may pass some days or hours in Hamburg and Lubeck as well.

    Then I will spend the rest of my summer enjoying the beaches of southern Sweden.
