:lol: He's like Benjamin Button that twat. I wouldn't really bother with an MLS game tbh they're fucking pish, suppose Henry may be worth a watch but the standard is poor and some of the first touches are painful to watch. Unless you can get cheap tickets. It's only a couple of stops from NYC penn station to Harrison though so travelling to it is piss easy.

I went to a game at the giants stadium when I was there in 98. The crowd was quite small but it was entertaining/interesting. The football was a bit like women's in that there were virtually no tackles of note.

 

I remember listening in on two lads talking about the upcoming WC and one just refused to accept how big an event it was/is. To be fair his mate did get it.

Day 3 in New York, it's like watching Homeland ffs. FBI and security everywhere, all top hotels surrounded by concrete bollards and police. Be worse when all the world leaders arrive.

 

Anyone heading here take a day in Brooklyn, much more laid back. Few good bars restaurants round Williamsburg.

I'd rule out Cologne, although that may be through overfamiliarity. The cathedral and the Christmas markets are impressive (though also stupidly busy) but there's not a huge amount to the place beyond that, particularly when you can't really use it as a base for exploring the Rhine because it's, well, December.

Not the first time I've heard someone call Vienna dull, but then we're only going to be there for the weekend really... If that would help I don't know.

 

Berlin I'd probably go with were it not for the fact that we were considering it for a summer holiday next year...

 

And thanks so far, chums.

berlin is an awesome weekend/long weekend destination. something for everyone - history, culture, arts, pubs, clubs and restaurants all top notch. not sure i'd go for a longer summer break but i live in london so prefer something a bit more chilled for that type of holiday.

 

admittedly i've only been to vienna once - it is beautiful but there wasn't much of a buzz around the place. it was deserted for one thing and a few of the locals i met in a pub said it is always that quiet. we wandered for ages without ever really finding a vibrant heart to the city. perhaps there are others that know it better that would argue otherwise but if i hadn't been to either city, berlin is where i'd be heading.

You get a lot of good beers in Vienna, especially Czech stuff from over the border. They have a lot of beerhalls and 'brewpubs'. Last time i was there, we ate and drank in the 1516 Brewing Company which does great beers and massive platters of slow cooked ribs etc. Its a nice part of town too.

 

An afternoon walking round the Schonbrunn Palace with your lass would be nice too. Think the christmas markets start towards the end of November, so would be best to wait to then iyam.

 

Not a bad choice tbh.

Vienna is dullsville. Prague is nice in winter. Nice Christmas market. Berlin would be my pic every time though. Awesome place

Budapest is better and cheaper than Vienna and Prague.

Gone with Berlin in the end, as there's so much to do on top of the markets.

Can't wait.

 

Any suggestions of the less obvious variety? Cheers

I'll PM you the now legendary 'Meenzer's Guide To Berlin' which does the rounds every time someone books a trip there :)
