    It certainly is. We did a fortnight driving around it in our bay back in the early 80’s and people warned us not to, but we had the blessing of combaro Guiseppe. Best trip ever :thumbsup:

  2. My mums side of the family come from the far north of Italy, and my previous partners family came from Cosenza in calabria.

    I can imagine her father being a Calabrian Gangster. He definitely had that way about him.

    Either Alaska or Yosemite National Park for adventure holidays.
    Berlin.
    The Maritimes of Canada.
    The lakes of northern Tasmania for fishing.
    In no particular order.

  5. Would have to be Poole. Always seem to end up there. Used to holiday in a rather spiffy flat in Sandbanks as a kid, and worked there at dear old Plessey Telecoms (RIP).

    And Munich, my old second home. Too many cars and people these days.

  7. Still nice, although the traffic's diabolical these days. I don't think I'll be buying a pad in Sandbanks any time soon...

  8. Traffic is ok if timed right. Too expensive for us to buy really. Probably not too far off moving back to Cambridgeshire to buy a place at some point. Need somewhere with a nice big workshop to work on stuff!

  9. I did think Boscombe was on the up (I used to live round the back of the Crescent, where all the winos hang out), due to turn into Surfy City when they built the reef. That turned out to be a death trap, so Boscombe's back to crack houses and "adult services". Pity.

  11. Plenty of job opportunities for me up that way. Just need to update the CV! Plus we’d be near my ageing folks.

  12. Go for it. If you’re any good, you can name your price.

    You’d have to mix with Cambridge types - you know the sort - but if they get too much, just punch them...

  16. Awww ... Memories jogged.
    Summer holiday romance that got rekindled four years later.
    Dinghy sailing and water-skiing on Windermere.
    (Found myself facing backward on a disc as the storm that killed two broke .... Choppy water rain and lightning on an open expanse not the best :confused:)
     
  17. Been doing it for nearly 10 years now, not sure about the being good bit though!
