Perhaps I have a new travel agent.  Has the Cat usurped Melds?

I'd like to see some places I haven't seen.  I especially like to experience things I can't experience on this side of the pond, which I know is getting more difficult with globalization.  I also have to think about my daughter, who has only been to Sweden in Europe so most everything will be new to her.  The Christmas market sounds interesting. 

Would it be worth a drive from AMS to Paris to enjoy the sights or is just as easy/cost effective to hop a flight?

" I especially like to experience things I can't experience on this side of the pond"

Plenty of culture over here

SD! I'd slug you but I might drop my cheeseburger and accidentally fire my gun.  I'm holding both right now!

But you know what I mean.  Europe for the most part is just old relative to the US so all those great churches, art museums, etc. are things I can't usually see over here.

Lol, i know mate, only playing.

You could spend years here and not see everything. Guess you need to pick your top 10 european non seen sights and go from there.

Christmas markets are a good shout though, not my thing but everyone i know whos been have loved them

Are you going to bring me a new hat seeing as you hate my black one?

You got it mate!  Hockey? NFL?  Red Wings are white and red, Lions are blue/silver.

Ooo, Hockey please. Cheers

Although i dont get the rules Slapshot & Youngblood are the closest i've come to Ice Hockey

Yank ... Cologne would be on my list as well if you get the chance

Fraggle !!   Dont you pick up the injury gauntlet
Nursey .. why was it pants, what went wrong?

1hr swim, 45 min turbo and 1hr gym work for me ... fair knackered!!

Don't know Melds.  I was really knackered yesterday (stressy work, ill children) so I'm putting it down to tiredness.  My hips and legs kept dropping, so much so I ended up using a pull buoy.  It just felt all wrong.  Ho hum, today's another day.  Although I am a bit stiff and sore today after a rather spectacular trip and fall yesterday.

Fraggle, what have you been doing to yourself?

And you Rafi?

What a bunch of crocs we are.

 just old age Nursey! Ended up with a calf strain (well the peroneus actually!) after reccing a new off road half marathon on Sunday. Although teh physio reckons walking 5 miles in cycle shoes with cleats the day before probably didn't help much!

Nursery, strained the arch of my foot when trying to sort out one of my mtb pedals. (It was do tight I couldn't unclip my foot so strained it trying to get it out)
Have cycled to work today, aiming to have a longer ride home later. Foot is feeling a little better *crosses fingers *

Germany is good if your into eating sausage and wearing leather pants.

Few days rest for those on the injury list i think. My shins are a bit sore so glad i've got two days off from running.

45 minute bike tonight. Hill training planned

Rest day here as part of mini taper. I may do some transition practise tomorrow.
I finally have some bling tri shoes that fit now. Ended up with size 42. Wiggle's sizing leaves alot to be desired...

Another crock - have a chest infection and orders from Doc not to train for one week, maybe two.

Germany = great country, Cologne is well worth a visit, as is Berlin and Hamburg.

Hope all those heading for the 'nackers yard' manage to change direction soon.

Best of a speedy recovery everyone!

Injury - the 5th discipline for going long.
