Stuck in tardistan for a course, thinking about hiring a car and driving the great ocean road this weekend. Any tips on things to see/places to stay/ decent pubs

Another weekend option could be the wineries of the King Valley, if that's your thing?

I do not drink wine

I enjoyed Santiago but don't remember there being much to it. I was on a cricket tour and our mini bus driver took us on a tour of the slightly dodgy areas to see the other side of the place, and so we could have a genuine Terremoto

Also go to a "coffee with legs" which is a coffee shop where women in bikinis chat to you and dance around. Kind of like a tame strip club, no booze though

We'll be staying there six days and attending a friend's wedding (going with my wife). Looking at wikipedia just for a minute, I can see easily enough to keep me personally interested with all the historical buildings and locations in the city. I'm not a drinker either so any non-alcohol/partying related activities of interest are highly welcome.

The worst of the Eight Hells is called Continuous Hell. It has the meaning of Continuous Suffering. Hence the name. He who is in Continuous Hell never dies. Longevity is a big hardship in Continuous Hell.

There are 'Cafe De Piernas' and there are 'Cafe De Piernas'. Some are more family orientated with women in tight fitting clothes, others are like tame strip clubs and then there are others which will see you two knuckles deep in a waitress at the counter.

I found Santiago a little meh to be honest. If you have the time, take a day or overnight trip to Valparaiso or into the Andes. You can see most of what Santiago has to offer in 2 days. Its a shame you don't like drinking, as there are a couple of cool restaurant and drinking areas in Provedencia and Bella Vista. Other than that, I cant think of any MUST SEES in Santiago, but there is enough to keep you interested for a couple of days.

Just booked some flights to Japan on ANA, however stupidly did it through webjet rather than directly through the airline. How much trouble am I going to have with this booking/does anyone have any experiences with booking via webjet?

Wouldn't think there would be a problem, you probably just paid too much for your fare.

Going to Europe in December with a four day stopover in Hong Kong. Going with the wife and boys (12 and 13). Want to do some English countryside like Warwick, Bath, Oxford etc, then heading in to London, across to Paris and open from there. Spending Christmas in Basque country with a Spanish friend.

Recommendations for:

- Good value accom in Honkers and best areas to stay

- Good accom or B&Bs west or north west of London

- Best accom in London that is clean and cheapish

- Best value rental cars from Heathrow

- Cool things to do in Spain

 

cheers

This year I joined Luxury Boat Syndicates and bought a luxury boat in Sydney. That was my old dream! Now I have an opportunity to enjoy up to 43 boating days a year and take the boat wherever I like.  This summer I'm planning to explore the nearest coastline and admire our local sailing destinations.

What's the monthly upkeep? 

 

Once I'm out of my current role, the plan is to drive ships on the harbour. Dream job.
