Places to visit and things to see? Holiday to Europe
show user profile  Bobbyboy
Hey all, though this would be a good place to ask for suggestions for places and people to visit when I come over to Europe in march. I will only be over there for a month with my partner and some of her family, but we will be landing in Amsterdam then driving to Paris and from Paris to London and the UK.

Just wondering what places in between would be worth checking out and if any one would be interested in having a beer?

If you have the chance when in the UK definatley have a few days in the Lake District. Absolutely stunning scenery! Great walks through mountains, water sports, rock climbing, good local beer and food. Without a doubt my fave place in UK, possibly world :-)

Cornwall is amazing in the Spring/Summer. Great beaches, and surfing!

Also the 'New Forest' is Devon is stunning. i was there recently and loved it. A bit mental with wild horses, donkeys and cows roaming free all over the place, but still a good distraction when your driving along.

If you're afta a boozy night out, I'd recommend Leeds and or Newcastle as top of my list.

Not sure it's worth going surfing in the UK when you're travelling from Aus? :)

What kind of thing are you actually after? Might be good to see old towns/citys

Here are some on top of my mind :

Amsterdam : pot & chicks
Brussels : peeing kid statue and 9 balls on a stick
Paris : pile of metal
Italy : wait for the building to fall over.... oh it doesnt
London : guys with bears on their head doing silly walks
Spain : watching someone put a still alive steak on his fonduestick
Germany : move on...

think we've put all the fires out now, so you missed that. bad timing.

obviously you'll be coming to see the queen as that's the entire justification for the £40M she costs us a year - tourism because of monarchy.

gotta go to gent & meet up with kb & spoon & soontekk & the weird old guy.

I was detained while drunk for attempting to fellate Manneke Pis. Hmm. Perhaps that's something to keep private. I can't really remember it.

Come on, KB. Germany has many fine places to visit like. Um.
There is a huge wine barrel in Heidelberg:
That is pretty cool.

I've been to Heidelberg but didn't see that. Just went to a boring European Commission meeting which lead to absolutely nothing.
So def worth the £50M a day it costs us.

Don't be so hard on yourself, Stabby. Estonia fills up with Finnish people at least once a week, binge-buying alcohol to escape their own stupid laws :)
