As with most forums, this is the 'any other buisness' topic which can be used to post anything not really car related - just to share whats happening in your life at the moment etc, etc.



So, i've booked our first holiday in a while to Corfu! 5 star all inclusive in september, canny bloody wait!

Whats happening in your life at the moment?

please feel free to discuss anything & everything :)

Well on the topic of holidays, I've got an apartment booked in Carbis Bay(St Ives) on the 15th Aug for a week! Can't wait for that, just hoping the weather will hold out!

Corfu sounds good though Jamie! It'll still be nice and warm in September aswell and a bit quieter which is good.

Just got back from 4 days in Dublin with the wife, cost us a small fortune and can not wait to go back, was supposed to be in Greece BUT I got the dates wrong when organizing a night out to celebrate the wife's birthday with our friends and family. However Dublin was superb and we are planning a return trip very soon. 2 weeks in South Devon booked for late September to tie in with Oktoberfest in Exeter as well as Rugby World Cup. Exeter is one of the host cities but are also displaying big games such as England vs. Wales during Oktoberfest within the walls of Exeter Castle (didnt get the balloted tickets over 1 million applied for that specific game) but I think watching it during Oktoberfest within the grounds of a castle will be a pretty surreal experience.

we got back from France 4 weeks ago we stayed for 2 weeks in the normandy region and timed it so we got the 75th anniversary d-day landings in and also lemans for the 2nd weekend.....Easily the best holiday ive had in a long time and lemans this year was just massive. Was supposed to be going in my car but in the end went in the mrs new RCZ and kind of glad we did in a way as we clocked up over 1600 miles in 2 weeks which would have cost me fortunes petrol wise in mine. Thats it for me holiday wise until my annual trip to Iceland next Feb/March for my uber geeky Eve Fanfest lol

try to goto lemans every year been going now for about 7 years missed last year due to mrs being ill but its well worth going at least once m8. If you are a petrol head it ticks every single box and if you like your booze then even more so if you camp for the whole week or long weekend theres so much to see and the amount of real cars that are there on all the camp sites is class you can even go on a specific bmw campsite i think

Still undecided yet mate, I wanna take mine but its long old way and I think with the mileage I've been doing recently it could do with the rest!

Yeah i went about 8 years ago and loved it. Port Aventura is a must definitely! If you're into your football aswell mate in the town they run day trips to go see the Nou Camp of FC Barcelona.

As Darren has said Port Aventura is bloody amazing. All inclusive on site hotel El paso is a fantastic hotel. Hot typical summer holiday during the day (imo too hot for the theme park) lay by the pool. Tea time onwards in the theme park shuts ever night at midnight. The best holiday you'll ever have. We going again shortly can't wait.
Need it after the house extension work that's been going on. Haven't ranted about it as it would take up to much space but today's was the electrics, kicked the original electrician off site fucking cowboy. Other lad I know helped me out today but found out the lad I kicked off the job had massively fucked the earth in the house.

What I don't understand is people who buy fast cars, but then watch their MPG all the time - If your going to have a fast car like that, then you wanna be able to drive it fast and not worry about MPG.

I used to go carpet fitting with my old man when I was a youngster, used to love it. Used to bolster it under the skirtin' for him, then started to cut bits, then eventually ended up fitting them. Good skills chimp!

I'm mardy as my arse, just work. Shit pay, need to find something else. I think it's because I am in holiday mode still. Drove to France, then on to Bruges last bank holiday weekend for a couple of days. A great laugh.
Going to Budapest at the end of next month which should be pretty good too, so looking forward to that.
