    AQA is better than the others in my experience, though it sucks like hell for bio!!! Maths is the best though

    Have fun in Kenya sweetie ahhh yes sorry I didnt recall I do pay attention!!! Yeah I will do a ton of rev before, and in the month after, coz mine will be in June so got some time

    Well I am going with my mum dad sis and cousin, and dad will give those waiters a jhaanpar loooool....ahhh I can imagine they would be all dishy looool...mehhh...guess I'll have to be on my best behaviour ahahah....
    I agreeee! All that application crap in Biology does my head in!!!! But I like AQA Chemistry, well unit 1 is straightforward but units 4 and 5 are meant to be terrible! And AQA Physics isn't very pleasant. But I prefer Physics over maths, any day

    I'm staying with a Kenyan family, so that should be interesting. And it's good that you're revising hard, should pay off in the end

    Zeegie, I'm telling those waiters are absolutely irresistible! I went with my brother, he just gave them a stern look but the waiters still didn't stop. They are unbelievable hot though

    Ah that's pretty good. We had all expenses paid for (minus food) by O2. You know the funny thing? I had more Turkish food in Germany than German food (mainly because it's the only way to get halal food), with the exception of some pastries.

    When you're in Germany, you have to try Turkish tea and the Turkish version of lassi. Can't remember what they call it now

    Where you staying? We stayed at Zentralflughaven (The old airport https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Tempelhof_Airport )

    BTW, be careful about what cards you take abroad. If you have a bank card at any major banks, don't use it, unless you have to.

    My (main) bank's charges are EVIL!

    EDIT: And my apples have just ran out. Damn it

    EDIT 2: Be sure to get travel insurance, unless you can get it for free. I'm covered under 2 policies atm

    Aqa chem is nice hope my result is good lol....
    I don't like ISAs tho...
    Unit 4 isn't too bad, unit 5 I've just started...s'alright but a lot to learn..and very very synoptic.....so is unit 4 :/

    Lol I detest physics....aheee
    Awwww that will be awesome!!!! I can imagine they would be fairly good looking But I dunno......if they look pretty generic I would just be like meh whatever...Aahahah there is no effing way they will carry on if they see my dad and cousin loooool....mind you I would give a fairly hefty punch too...but I speak some Spanish so could just warn them to stop before they reach their funerals...

    hey, sorry for the late rely. i typed a reply up and my computer decided it was a suitable time to freeze.

    haha we had buffets where we stayed, so not very german either. Germans are heavy on the meat though, so abit of a problem for us Muslims.
    ohh nice, my friend there is turkish and she says there are a good number in Berlin. Might go and see her family if I have enough time before my flight after the conference finishes as i've known her two years now and they sound so lovely!

    http://www.vch.de/galerie/hotel-christophorus-haus.html we stayed here in July, so probably here again, but i'm not sure, i'll find out for sure in May

    I doubt ill take my card, im there for three days and everything is paid for except personal shopping and food out of the meal/snacks they provide
    haha i can imagine, im not very good with banks and stuff i havent taken an interest in it at all, my mum did that since i got my first saving account when i was 7, then i opened a current account at 15 and all i've ever done with it is check my boss pays me when i worked haha i need to start understanding how it all works soon
    ahh we have tonnes! too many if only i could pass it through the computer aha i dont like apples that much, but i still eat them:P my mum went crazy on rasberries, blueberries and strawberries and bananas so ive been making smoothies every morning :')
    ohh, have you ever tried dragonfruit?

    yeah i think the conference organisers pay for that :P

    i can only speak for the nikon d3000 and its really good quality. i dont actually use it tbh :/ ive had it over a year and maybe now and then because its too big/bulky to take everywhere so i tend to use a normal small camera and like keep the big one for like a cousins wedding or something. I'm intending to use it loads this summer - it'd be cool to have a part time job haha±
    Oh. I'm not looking for professional photography or anything either. My other suffered unfortunate deaths and I needed to get a new one so I thought I should just get a good one. I think I'll cancel the order and stop being lazy so I can go and have a look at the cameras myself and choose then.

    Are you applying anywhere for part-time jobs?

    Lucky! We had food on site at the airport (We stayed in tents, indoors) A take away was something like €4 or something. Walk 10 minutes out, and they were only like €2.50 or something

    Ooh. That's the good thing about knowing Turkish people. I'd love to try some German food, just that very little of it is halal. Oh, and they don't sell porridge!

    Oh fair enough. I took my card, but then again I must have spent like £100 on gifts. At the time, it wasn't the best card, but the best card of the major high street debit cards if that makes any sense

    Lol. I have too many (6) but I want to open three more. None pay interest, BUT certain banks give certain benefits

    You *could* have sent me a picture, and I would have ate it Nice I guess you're in an Asian area too, so you get the food van coming along?

    Nope, but I've tried sharon fruit or permission if you've tried that?

    if you're not looking for any thing professional, Argos tend to have some Panasonic Lumix's on clearance on their eBay shop pretty regularly. I find them to be pretty good.

    Mine died (my fault) I got a Sony one (similar specs), but it's not as good imo

    Umm, around 350 pounds. The one I have ordered is for 300, but I'll cancel it tomorrow.
