Where are you going on holiday?


#264

Are you the fruity looking one on the right?


#265

Nah, he is the dot you see right at the back of the sea


#266

I sure ain’t the panchito in the middle, I’ll tell you that. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: (could use the white power salute emoji right now…)


#267

Are you going to keep that photo up for more than a day for a change @AbouCuellar ? :grin:

Looking good bro.

This thread makes me feel ridiculously under travelled


#268

Haha nice one, looks like you had a good time! :grin:


#269

It looked our chorizo friend had a day out with Lewis Hamilton :giroud3:


#270

Always fun to hang out with your Asian friends…


#271

Where haven’t I been? :henry2:

Honestly though, I notice a lot of people love Madrid. I found Madrid quite dull, and tiny! And I am not just talking about Cristiano Ronaldo…


#272

Just took a shower and was planning to take it down now, actually, as the paranoia was starting to come…

Travelling is overrated, it’s a form of modern day slavery, or so said Jean Luc Godard. At least that’s what I tell myself when I don’t travel so much.

I don’t understand this comment, my Asian friend. [quote=“Phoebica, post:271, topic:260”]

You asians never get Madrid.


#273

Have you ever been to Valencia?


#274

They are as Asian as me :xhaka:

I was meaning to ask you actually, I went to Madrid for New Year one year, do you do the 12 grapes in 12 seconds thing?


#275

Yes, that is just a spanish thing in general (tbh I don’t really do it, cause I don’t like eating grapes enough to have 12 in such a short time period. I do have prawns, though, which is another tradition here, because prawns are tasty). Though I don’t do it in Sol, as I’m not a tourist or a masochist.


#276

Really? :giroud:

So is that 12 prawns in 12 seconds by the way?


#277

Do they even belong to Spain anymore?


#278

Why do you take your photos down @AbouCuellar ?

Also, is Seville much of a holiday destination or more a City that you can stop and pass through after a few days?


#279

We came back last week. It was pretty nice, Gozo especially. It had a real local feeling. Malta’s urban area on the other hand lacked soul, too much construction going on. But we only spent a day there, probably a lot more to see. We didn’t really go for the clubbing. I followed you up on the Rivareno and Ta’xbiex tips, even took a commemorative cheers photo for you from the terrace in Ta’xbiex but can’t find it, I will post it later if it pops up. Best calamari I’ve had in Ta’xbiex. Gozo also offered some really nice local restaurants and excellent service. Had a brilliant french Rose in Gozo, which at 11 euros per bottle was a fucking steal (6 euros in the store). Overall, if I go again, I’d pick Gozo again and would look into other parts of the main island.


#280

Because he’s weird lol


#281

Yeah Malta is like one huge city but you’ve got to get to know it. I remember hating it on my first day there as well. There’s a lot of investment and renovation going on so that explains some of it.

Glad you liked my suggestions!!


#282

It is a city with many great squares and monuments. It’s not only about nightlife (it is great though :smiley: ).


#283

Madrid is easily my favourite Spanish city. Seville is pretty close though. Barcelona is cool and vibrant but too busy and crowded to properly enjoy
