Amsterdam looked Cool - Toronto was brilliant too, my mate lives there and went to his wedding, what a great city but not sure about the cold!!
Heard a comment about the weather in Melbourne being a problem?? eh? surely better weather than here?
They are generally poor, Victoria Wood probably the most talented and best observed - her and Julie Walters are easily the best female double act ever, I would say.
Stewart Lee? Richard Herring better.
That reminds me....missus and kid are out for a while later
South West London (if you can afford it) is easily the best running part of London - and documented as such in magazines in the past.
Wimbledon Common, Richmond Park, Thames Towpath, Bushey Park, list is endless. Easy to get out there to run from the cheaper areas like Tooting, Streatham etc.
Friendlier than transient and faddy north London (although I love Hampstead Heath too....)
If the chafing is legs rubbing together, just buy some compression shorts or thinner cycling shorts type thing.
Had the Eureka moment and have always done long runs in them since.
