    Just had 2 cracking weeks in Malaysia. Great food, cheap (though not outrageously), reasonably easy to get around, cleaner and less chaotic than some of its near neighbours. Pity about the heat and humidity, but not much you can do about that.

    Now got a couple of days in Singapore before continuing to Australia, then NZ. There anything in particular to do in that time? That doesn't cost a fortune, funds are getting stretched...

    Malta is great but wouldn't recommend it in August. The 32-35 heat is OK but the humidity has been obscene at times. Aborted one day out sightseeing as it was just too horrible. Will definitely come back at a different time of year when not as humid and see the rest of the sights.

    Valetta and Victoria are great days out.

    Back in Athens for a day. Walking about at night. Ended up walking past a mob throwing molotov cocktails at riot police. Pretty hairy. But I was told this was nothing out of the ordinary.

    I'm thinking about planning a trip for the family (wife and three little kids) to visit London next year. Part of it is that I need to plan a trip for the missus's 35th birthday, plus we'll get to see her aunt that just kicked cancer's ass, and I'd love to plan it around Pakistan playing a Test at Lords.

    So with that in mind, CW, any suggestions? I haven't been to London since '09 when I was single and happy enough to stay at a roach-infested hotel close to a tube station. Now I need to find a quality place to stay but not break the bank. Which areas should I keep in mind? Pakistan play at Lords end of July, what type of ticket pricing should I expect to watch 2 days? It's not a heavy rain season I don't think, right? I really think she'll like Scotland. Any beaches you'd recommend? I stayed with family in Glasgow last time but things are a bit... awkward with them right now. Any good places outside of the city to stay?

    Sorry if my questions are a jumbled mess, it's mostly me thinking out loud.

    Stay in Scotland and visit for a few days of the Test if you must.

    London is a bit of a hole. Parts of it are proper 3rd world and the food isnít great either.

    I stayed in Ibis near Shepís Bush and it was clean, budget friendly and next to the tube. Zone 1 and near all the usual touristy stuff.

    Get an Air BnB or serviced apartment mate. If you're looking for a place to stay fora family of five, hotel rooms will kill you in London in what passes for summer there. Plus they're incredibly cramped and poorly ventilated.
