    I know (of course) that you have been to London..but what about the others? Which two would you say would be must sees?

    Paris for sure - it's divine and fully deserves its reputation as probably the most beautiful and romantic city in the world. I know it's in France, but that can't be helped.

    Rome is very, erm, Italian LOL Great atmosphere and slightly crazy but with that architecture, culture, FOOD and history you can't go wrong.

    Amsterdam is obviously more 'subdued' and nothern European in atmos but very laid back and it has a great 'villagey' feel. The dope is good (and legal) too - or so I'm told.....

    Berlin is vibrant and has reclaimed a lot of its former grandeur and despite the fact it's full of Germans it's cool and trendy. The beer's great.

    If I had to pick and had never visited any of them before I'd probably say London and Paris as Must Sees, then Rome then Amsterdam and Berlin.

    I dunno...going to so many cities in two weeks kind of reminds of that movie If This Is Tuesday This Must Be in Belgium. I say do two at the absolute most.

    Hey it's not like Snakes On A Plane here despite what Steve Irwin might have told you. I've only ever seen 3 'dangerous' spiders and they were white tails that can give you a nasty nip but won't kill you. Oh yeah, there's the huntsmen of course - big mofos, but harmless. I guess a LOT depends on whether you freak out at the sight of a spider - I don't and never have so it's not a problem for me but if you are girly about them I guess Australia might seem a bit scary.

    Well they do 'unsettle me',,but actually wasn't it Grimm who would seriously scream like a six year old girl when it came to spiders?

    And I know that you have those funnel web spiders, the most poisonous snake in the whole world, sharks, stingrays, deadly jellyfish, even huge poisonous multi-colored toads!

    Hell even with the cute animals you are not safe..Koalas..infested with chlamydia..ew...and Kangaroos..that can kick the living shit out of ya!

    I would have to have a bodyguard/escort to feel safe. Maybe Eric Bana could spare a few days(and $$$) to help me out??

    Well as you know, he lives a couple of streets away. He's way hotter than Colin anyway.

    Ok,i love doing travel planning..
    Begin with 3 days in London,see the touristy things.
    Eurostar from St Pangras and in 2 hours in The heart of Paris.
    At least 6 days there,train to Vercailles,one hour and half and hour to disney land.
    Then it could be Artesia night train to Milan and way down,5 hours to Florence ,1 hour next to Rome.From there ,4 hours to Venice..
    You could take night boat to Greece from Ancona.
    Visit Athens ,Delphi and some ilands.
    OR you can do Spain.Night train from Paris to Barcelona,then 5 hours to Madrit or go south to Sevilla..
    While in Paris ,Go to Luxembourg,its 4 hours lovely train ride,i did it for a day,totally worth it.
    Also 4 hours to Amsterdam from Gare du Nord main train station.
    If you need any tips let me know,i ve done my own planning and i can help you with trains,prices and scedules.

    Last time I went London-Paris on Eurostar it went from Waterloo. Has that changed to the new St Pancras station?? Either way it's a great way to get from the centre of London to the centre of Paris without all the hassle of airports.

    Yes A*O,its changed a couple of months ago,its also 15 minutes shorter ride,i am a frequent rider and get emails regularly.
    I love Eurostar,its such a great way from the heart of one Metropolis to the other,hopp on the tube or the Metro,and baaaaaam,you re there.There is a strict check in,but a lot friendlier that the airports.
    I could ride Eurostar everyday..
