LOL cg, 'make sure the wife and girlfriend don't meet each other!', unearthed Bob Monkhouse's jokebook? ;-)

Cheers for the links, quite fancy doing one in Germany, speak the lingo a little bit. Went to Koblenz about.. jeez over 25 years ago, that suddenly makes me feel old! Remember it being quite picturesque around there. Looking for something in Feb or March for next year though, maybe the year after for Germany. Oh hang on I'm doing one and definitely no more.

Think I'm going to plump for Rome, read some good reviews and should be plenty for the family to see and do when I'm out there. Cheers for all the suggestions.

Re previous comment on needing medical certificate for Italian marathons, presume this is just a case of visiting your GP and paying £x for them to write a letter to confirm your fit as a butcher's dog (or not as the case may be)??

Got something to say?
