Yip. Thought it was excellent. Even now it is the pricey sum of £471 per person
And November is a good time to go too weather wise. You will have a brilliant time! o/

Back from spending a week in Dubrovnik. (well been back since Sunday). What a city. So clean and friendly. OH chose it so good choice.

We stayed in a guesthouse in Gruz Harbour which turned out to be the most ideal location. Only 20 minutes walk to the old town/city walls so no need for buses. Close to where you get the boats to the wee islands. Literally across the road. Five minutes away from a supermarket. Then close to Lapad another area of Dubrovnik which has beaches and watering holes.

We also spent a day in Montenegro and another in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It is hard to believe that just over twenty years ago war raged in this beautiful city. OH and I have never seen Games of Thrones but now really want to see it after having sat on the real Iron Throne on Lokrum Island.

I did Dubrovnik before, had a wonderful time, and also did the the same day trips! :D We were at the top of the hill from the walled city, 20 minutes walk uphill, so ideal after stuffing ourselves with the good seafood! ;)

Our trip to London is almost over, early train back to Scotland in the morning! Hi & bye to my London pals, didn't have time to catch up...didn't even have time for Tom Hardy! Will see some of you in Nottingham next month o/

I had a fckn blast! The highlight was meeting Tommy Flannagan(Braveheart, Sons of Anarchy) and Ryan Hurst...I gave them free hugs! The prices were extortionate for selfies/autographs with most of the stars from the walking dead and SoA, crazy ass prices!!

Nice to meet The Dude and Raj101, briefly. Hope you enjoyed the convention :D
Preferred cinemas: Any in Edinburgh!

Hey guys, random question but apparently the O2 priority app will have a Virgin trains sale tomorrow and I don't have the app (boo). Do you know if it'll be a general link that's shareable and if so would someone be able to post it here and/or DM me when it goes live at midnight tonight? :) Thanks so much!!
