Recently I noticed that Thursdays I have found cheap flights. I am going to Hong Kong in July and yesterday saw flights for £455 on Lufthansa but today they have gone up to £605. Absolutely gutted I didn't book...not sure if to book tonight or wait until next Thursday hmmm



Download Hopper. It forecasts price movements on airline tickets and tells you whether it's a good time to buy or whether to wait. You can also get it to save a rote you're interested in and it'll notify you of price drops.

Thanks Tomous. I actually downloaded it already after googling for flight apps
It's a great little app. Fingers crossed tomorrow the prices will drop. It is thought that airlines return to work after the weekend and start discounting seats depending on weekend sales. So Tuesday should be the day :)

If it's anything like my experience of driving in Ghent then maybe that's what hell is, the entire rest of eternity spent in (trying to get out of) strawberry floating Bruges.

How's a fairytale town not somebody's strawberry floating thing? How can all those canals and bridges and cobbled streets and those churches, all that beautiful strawberry floating fairytale stuff, how can that not be somebody's strawberry floating thing, eh?

You know, there's that big dual carriage way when you get off the train.

Off to Krakow tomorrow. Looking forward to it actually as I've not been away (bar moving to Hamburg) since September I believe.
Then a month later heading off to Canada for a couple of weeks. It's been about 5 yrs since my last long haul flight :fp:

Off to Berlin in a couple of weeks, anyone got any places to visit?

Probably going to do a graffiti & Bowie walk, seen some abandon theme parks and maybe head to Berghain/Panorama Bar one night to see what it's about.

This place looks great but not sure what will be on when we're there http://www.kraftwerkberlin.de/en/location.html

Good luck getting into Berghain. Kraftwerk bar looks a good shout, we were gunna go last weekend but ended up getting kebab instead. Kit Kat club is around the corner and is also highly recommended for adult entertainment.

If you're going over a weekend, mauer park karaoke is an absolute must.

I've also heard about this. Apparently they use your cookies to determine it's you. Not sure if it's actually true though.

I did it the other day for one of the lassies at work. Same holiday package cost £90 more on the computer on our ward which we'd been looking on compared to going straight to booking on the computer on another ward.

Yeah I've noticed it when looking for hostels and gooseberry fool. I delete cookies so often nowadays.
