Erm, I'd like Italian. I'm not really fond of Indian.

I don't really mind what we eat as long as they can make it without added salt.

Is that on the 26th or on the 25th?
I was thinking about perhaps arriving on the 25th, a day ahead, like I did in Amsterdam.

I've just booked my flight.
I land at Gatwick on the 25th at 15.10. And I go back on the 27th at 20.35.

I'm going to check the train timetable now and make a reservation for Hastings.

I'm super excited!
Perhaps I'm a traveloholic or something since I always get such a kick out of planning and booking trips.

EDIT: OK, It's too early for making reservations for the train, but they seem to run twice an hour so there shouldn't be a problem to get to Hastings.

I gues I'll meet you at the hotel then Jelena. I'm not going to wait for four hours to pick you up . Unless my condition has changed a lot by then and I need help...
And I'm not a traveloholic at all. When will the 'beam me up, Scotty' thingy become reality?

It seems that some eager beavers have already sorted out accommodation (the internet is handy for stuff like that) but here are a few possible ideas for people still looking. As a resident I've never had personal experience of any of them (I've never annoyed Mrs Urhan quite that much. Yet. ) but they all seem to have good reputations.

I've linked direct to the websites of the places themselves, but you might be able to get deals via room booking services.

Millifont Guest House - Very near the train station and the town centre.

Senlac Guest House - Similarly close to both station and centre.

Lansdowne Hotel - A short distance from the station but on the sea-front.

Alexander's - Another sea-front establishment.

Churchills Hotel - A bit further out but handy for a nice park and with a good chinese restauarant attached.

For those that like the predictable standards of a chain hotel , there is also a Premier Inn, but that is on the edge of town. Fairly regular buses in but could stilll be a bit out of touch with others.

I'm also too excited!

Alexanders' is a bit too expensive for me, so I think I might stay at Millifont Guest House, but not completely sure yet.

And I'm really excited about the deal I got for the trains. The Brit Rail pass is for those not living in the UK, and it's very affordable for Louie and I since we get a discount for being under 25. It allows us to get on and off trains as much as we want for our two weeks there.

I thought you only had marihuana for sale there. Unless you're buying from dealers, of course...

There is a lot of cocaine on Schiphol so it must be easy to get there, no?

So, like I said I'm going to stay at my sister's in Hatfield together with my Boyfriend. We're planning on flying to Britain one week ahead, in order to not get a holiday season price .

Step, can you give me a good tip on what kind of ticket to get for getting around London and the area in the week before the meeting? I am considering the Oyster Card, but I wanted to see if there's any better options. Both my Boyfriend and I are University students here in Germany (don't know if that counts for discounts in the UK), and at the time of the meeting he will be 23 and I will be 25. I think we'll keep to the Underground when travelling through London, though I might consider looking around the outside areas as well. And of course, we'll have to get from Hatfield to London as well. O.o Any suggestions?

Now, I only have to find an affordable way to get from Heathrow to Hatfield... O.o

Not sure about good tickets to get off the top of my head. I'll see what I can found out for you.

I have to start thinking about a design for the new badges. It will be hard to top Step's design from 2010 though .

Yep, this design just screams quality.



Jaz, I have a friend that visits London a lot but I won't be able to speak to them until Monday (they are away oop North). Are you planning to travel around a lot as it has been suggested it might make a difference.

Maruca (who is never on these forums anymore unfortunately) and I came up with some brilliant ideas already. I only hope they are not too expensive.
