I never have, but my sister did and loved it. They ended in Scotland and loved that too. I'd like to go someday.

My sister has and it's on my bucket list... I still don't realize why my non-irish sister got a shamrock tattoo on her foot while in Ireland...

Re: Have you ever visited England??

I was there for about a week. Don't remember much, as I spent most of it trying to empty all the beer glasses in the local pub. I do remember getting up one morning and trying to walk down the street in the fog and running smack into one of those ornamental light poles. As you can guess, it was London.

Re: Have you ever visited England??

Going to get one of those railroad passes and travel all over . I think its about $1500 per person , per pass for 3 months . Unlimited travel . We will be renting a place as a home base in europe and going out in all directions .

When you do start planning this trip let me know....i live 30 min drive from London and am located right next to a main link on the rail network/highway links...so ideal for a rental home base......i could look in to short term lease on a property ect on your behalf....damn i would even sort you a car to use to save on rental fee's.

Any questions you have Al on costs of travel ect i would happily look into it for you....do not pay as a tourist you will get stung.

Re: Have you ever visited England??

I arrived in London the day after Prince William was born. I went with the high school french class and we visited Oxford University, Stratford-upon-avon, Stone Henge, and we had several days in London before departing from Dover to France. SoHo is an interesting place. I have many friends in England who I would love to visit and I look forward to returning sooner than later.

Re: Have you ever visited England??

I've always wanted to go to England. London in particular. I did a Med cruise and visited Spain, France, Italy & Greece but that was it. Someday I would love to make it to England.
If you ever have a free ticket or pass to come over that way Galvi please keep me in mind ...as I'm calling DIBBS right now!!!!!!!

Galvi, have you ever been to this side of the big pond?

Poor wording on my part. I enjoyed the heck out of all those places. Toulon France in particular. Barcilona Spain was great, Naples was quite the experience. Young kids would surround you and bump into you so one could pick pocket you. They were very organized ....and of course you could not touch a young kid or you would get arrested. Made us avoid kids for sure. Weird. Reminded me of Oliver Twist's England.

All this was compliments of the US Navy. A working vacation if you look at it the right way. LOL.

Thanks JB.
I would love to see Rome and Venice also. Tuscany was never on my list but from what I've heard of it the past couple of years with the cooking forum has me interested now.

Re: Have you ever visited England??

I was born in Preston, near Liverpool, home of the Beatles. I went to school, had jobs until I left England when I was 39, found the country getting too violent. I wouldn't recommend going there, perhaps on a holiday, but it has many social problems, especially binge drinking and many no-go city areas. The women there are now ugly and vulgar and many can be seen vomiting on the streets any weekend night.

I always wanted to visit but never made it. Did a med cruise with the US Navy but neither England nor Ireland were on our port of call.
