    I doubt you will have much chance of sun, unless you lucky enough to avoid the area of low preasure sweeping the country again. I guess you have missed the worst of the bad weather though and it should brighten up after the weekend.

    I hope you enjoy your holiday anyway.

    Cornwall is not typical of an english beach, Blackpool probably is, full of 60 year old fat people dressed in fake rubber boobs, countless fish and chip shops, rough scally infested bars, and sod all to do. And people wonder why I hate Blackpool.

    At least Cornwall is pretty.

    Cornwall is real pretty. I'd prefer to go to Cornwall than somewhere like Spain (provided the weather is nice in Cornwall) because south coast of Spain is basically a "Little Britain." Imagine all the obese, pale-skinned Northerners of Britain all culminating on a litter-strewn beach, their backs glowing red with sunburn and shouting "Oi, Jimmy, pass us a burger from Maccy D's down the beach." Yeah, you guessed it, in a country which is famed for traditional dishes such as paella, there is a McDonalds on the beach, and it is heaving with fat Brits. The sea was full of litter, and people were swimming amongst plastic bags, garbage from ships and God knows what else was floating around in there. Really, it was not pleasant. Honestly, the beeches at Cornwall (and Dorset) are just idyllic compared to Spain.

    I am going to Northern Spain in two weeks time:mad: However I do have a brain so I am spending 4 days in a 4 far hotel is the posh destrict of Barcelona and then 3 days in Lloret the little britian thing (I have never been to any where like that so it will be an experience). I would like to go to Cornwall but it must be as far as Paris from me!

    more pick pocketing, i started to put my wallet in my side jeans pocket (as uncomfortable as it may seem!).

    i was in barcelona a few weeks ago and really liked it - i even ventured across to barcelona zoo and went to the football stadium for a half-day. really enjoyed the hol.

    I think I should enjoy it, I like city holidays, there is no way I can spend a week in a little britian type place. I am only going to Lloret as an educational experience to see if the stereotypes of the germans getting to the beach first is true

    You mean you don't like "local" resorts for "local" people..?! And yes, the stereotype about germans is true; the sunbed towels are out before the owl has found a place to sleep for the night.

    DAMN!! I really wanted to be arkward and spoil that stereotype, I mean't I don't like the idea of British 18-30 type resorts, they just sound so rough and ville, but I guess Lloret maybe a nice ideal in between as I will like the night life side of things, I just don't like the fact people get so drunk and become louts.

    ...and there's me thinking that was just the reps! Don't forget your german phrase book, if you only did german up to GCSE (or not at all) then, like me, it becomes difficult beyond asking what they have in their pencil cases.
