    Let me hear them, even the most mundane detail.

    Educate me about your experiences, the best deals, customs, food, haunts, I don't care if you are boring or hilarious, tell me everything.

    Remind me tomorrow and I'll tell you about using an ambulance in St. Petersburg as a taxi to get around to the clubs one night.

    DF knew how to party in 1991. :c

    Some French faggit grabbed my gf's ass in Paris, so when I went after him he tried to smash a bottle over my head. He missed, I beat the shit out of him. Stayed in a friends hostel for the night to avoid prosecution.

    I've been three times but don't have any exciting stories really. The first time I was 18 and with a group and the second two times I was with my wife who's a bit of a stick in the mud when it comes to crazy stuff.

    We sort of accidentally ended up in Munich during Fasching which is their winter carnival similar to Mardi Gras. It was fun and we walked around the streets drinking and partying for 3 days. Not a very good story but it was a lot of fun. So much that we are going back next month to do it again.

    My favorite thing that I ate in France was a hot dog with gruyere on a baguette with dijon. Street food.

    Sounds very cool. The idea of good times in happenstance is very appealing to me.

    I'd like to fly into Lisbon, make a long loop of sorts and leave in Paris.

    We try not to etch too many plans in stone. We get a free trip to Spain every year but since we can't fly directly into the city we go to, we have to fly somewhere else and switch planes so we arrange it so that our layover lasts a few days and we get a hotel which we have to pay for of course. We've stayed in Paris, Madrid and Munich and now we're doing Munich again and it happens to be during Faschine again. :beer:

    We are also going to Paris to stay with friends for free and they are taking us to Normandy for a day so I can see it and we're going to some tiny town in Belgium for a visit with another friend. I like to visit the tiny little towns as much as the big cities.

    First thing I will do when I get to Paris is get me one of those.

    Dang, that sounds awesome. The tiny towns are the best, when are you and Mrs. Scott doing this?

    I lived in Poland for 7 years during the 80s. It was a communist shithole.
