Holidays

Ryanair will let me fly from Glasgow Prestwick to Brussels for free. dermfitz and nwhyte say Brussels is wonderful. I think I should go...anyone want to come?

(I should SO go places more often. I haven't been abroad since I was 15, which is silly, with the price of air travel these days.)

Go for it!

Heh. If I finish my paper in time, we could meet up there. :) Scared?

Heh, that'd be cool! Won't be very soon, but I'd like to do it before Christmas. Or maybe for my birthday, in January.

Eek. I'd be able to make it during Christmas holidays, but in January I can't run away from uni--except for a long wekend, maybe.

Yeah, it'd probably only be for a weekend anyway. I'll let you know!

Go go,go.
And get you some chocolates while there.
I'll give you some hints which ones to buy.
:)
Something is on its way to you, ok?

Look forward to seeing you!

(But I'm out of town the last week of September, October and November for various reasons.)

I'll have a look at my shifts later, see when I could possibly fit it in... I suspect it will be January before I get round to it, though!

Oh bugger, just clicked that link "for free", it's a flight to Charleroi.
Don't be alarmed, but that means you'll have to travel to Brussels by public, or other transport.
Ah, just had a quick look at the trains time tables, isn't too bad, it takes ca. 50 minutes to travel from Charleroi to Brussels.

Ah, that's OK - it's about the same from Glasgow to Prestwick airport! And I bet the Belgian trains are better than ours.

Well, if you're lucky, you'll get to travel in one of those fairly new doubledecker trains, with airconditioning included.
Which won't do you any good in January, just realized that.
*cough*

No, but a double decker train sounds fun :o)

They lay on a bus to take you right into the centre...

That's much duller than the double decker train! But, er, possibly helpful.

Well, it depends on whether you see a further 35min journey out of the airport to Charleroi centre is worth it to get a train :) I mean, they say it's at Charleroi, but it's not even all that close...

Hmph. Probably not...maybe I can get the train somewhere else!
