we stayed in the resort most of the time, and the staff were really friendly, and a bit flirty. (One of them said my dress was beautiful colours, it was black and white).

Yea you get sleazy people anywhere.

I went to Paris last year and I didn't come across anyone rude in public or restaurants except one. Everyone said excuse me and didn't push or anything. We did encounter one rude waiter - it was opposite the Nortre Damme at night and he was pretty rude to us. We did have a great waiter outside the Louvre as well, he was very nice explaining the menu to us i.e. the extra bits and stuff. I know it was his job but he was nice about it, it wasn't effort to do it and he was laughing and joking.
A hug is a great gift, one size fits all.

we cant afford to go on a big holiday this year, so we're going on 3 mini-ones :)

We're going to Paris for the weekend in May (we got our flights BETWEEN US for £30 return), and his uncle lives in Paris, so we wont have to pay accomodation (and he MIGHT even pick us up from the airport :) ), so we just have to pay for stuff we want to buy and if we go out for dinner etc.

My uncle has a holiday flat in Devon, so we're going there the first weekend of June (lets pray for some early summer weather eh guys?!), so again just have to pay petrol and food. It's a lovely flat though, literally like 100m from the beach. :) yay.

and then in the summer (probably late july or in august) we're going to go camping in wales, in the same place I always used to go when I was a kid :D yay.

I've not long been back from Budapest for 4 nights, that was a very interesting city! Fantastic architecture etc.

We're going to London in June - my boyfriend paid for us to go to see the Lion King Musical and go to Ascot on Ladies' Day for my birthday :) (which was in December, so I've had to wait 6 months for my prezzie, hehe).

Re: sleazy men, I have found that Italians are quite pervy/sleazy (although very handsome!)

I absolutely LOVED Budapest RagDoll, did you by any chance go to this amazing bar with like an old car in the back garden and a bath and stuff?

No, but I think I know what you're talking about.. isn't the name translated into "ruin-pub"? My understanding is they basically transform empty houses into make-shift pubs which are becoming increasingly popular? We went to one, but not the one with the outside space as it was raining!

It was an amazing city; I'd recommend it to anyone. When did you go Rufio?

Last summer, we went to a festival in Serbia (Exit), and went back home via Budapest :)

I LOVED it, did you walk up to the fort? We walked up and were talking about how beautiful it was and then saw a guy shooting up in the bushes lol.

lol that's nice! The fort? Sorry, might be being dozey here, but not sure where you mean.

We went up to the Castle District (that might be where you're referring to??) where the palace is. There's also the Fishermans' Bastion and churches up there. We walked up to Gellert's Monument and the Liberation Monument too. We managed to do all that in one day, was a lot of walking, but definitely worth it!

The bridges are amazing too, especially the Chain Bridge.

It's one of those places that you can tell is up-and-coming though. Obviously they've not long been liberated from the Soviet Union and Communist Regime etc. so it's going to take a while for the economy to pick up/the city to be regenerated. For example, we walked along the Buda side of the river and saw some absolutely gorgeous buildings which grand entrances, huge archways, frescos etc. but they were just boarded up. It's quite sad really, but I'm sure given time they'll be bought and restored to their former glory! Imagine how much they'd be worth in London or Paris!!

Anyway, ramble over lol :)
