    Not that easy to get there from Geneva. I'd say ~6 hours minimum and the train ride isn't cheap (being Swiss).

    Especially since the Swiss Alps are in the way, and what are you doing going through the Swiss Alps without spending time there?

    Should Inter-rail it - you'd only have to pay the booking fare.

    Yeah I really enjoyed Madrid. Seville my absolute favourite though.

    Haven't been to Spain, but Mrs Burgey speaks very highly of both Seville and Madrid.

    The Med is a really strange place I think.

    It's really great, and I really like it there, but I always feel much further away from home when I am there than when I am visiting places that are much further away geographically (e.g. in Asia). I feel a lot more familiar and comfortable in somewhere like Japan than I do in Greece for instance. Not sure why that should be. Something to do with the culture and climate I guess.

    Also, in many ways I always feel like parts of Italy, Spain, and Greece are hugely similar (superficially anyway), but also massively different.

    On a related note, people are not joking when they say that Crete is like the Wild West of Greece. All the road signs have bullet holes in them ffs.

    What's good to see in Amsterdam/Barcelona? Visiting Europe early next year (I have the places planned [London, Bath, York? in England; Switzerland, Amsterdam and Barcelona in the mainland]) and want some more info on the sights.

    Sounds awesome. Whilst the people and your archaic licensing laws leave a lot to be desired, the country itself is one of the best. Enjoy my October trips to the south west (stay right by Galloway Forest) but definitely want to explore it further probably just with the missus.

    Lots of prostitutes in both if you're into that sort of thing.

    Barca is great though. Loads to do, though I was on a stag do so aside from the Nou Camp I didn't do much sightseeing. And I got chucked out of there at half time.

    This is really interesting because I feel the exact opposite to you. I think in general you and I have quite different personalities so this it not particularly surprising.

    Japan is probably the most difficult place for me to feel comfortable, whereas the eastern mediterranean feels just perfect to me.

    I was just in Japan a couple of months ago. I found Japan really isolating and stifling, to the point where I actually felt a sense of relief when I arrived in China on the connection going home - the massive difference in culture was quite palpable. Don't get me wrong I had a greatthere and absolutely love their art and history and architecture and some of their clothing stores and fashion and the people were very very nice and friendly. Just in terms of the lifestyle there...it's not my idea of how I'd like to live.

    Apart from going to the beach and visiting every Vanderpump restaurant, what is there to do in Los Angeles? Not interested in Disney **** (Anaheim, I know) or Universal studios tbh. Strikes me as an average joint tbh.
