  1. Excellent. Cheers. Journeys weren't showing when I checked them out before.
  2. Quoted £80 for a 6 seater with private hire firm. Cheapest train route is £7.60 up to £23 if using gatwick express.
  3. I'll get a quote for a 6 or 7 seater. Can also look at uber when we land as that will be the cheapest by far. Failing that we can hop on the trains.
  4. Bump. If anyone is on this flight and if it is indeed a +90 minute wait for a bus to Bratislava then drop me a PM if you fancy sharing a cab. Also, we are on the 11:05 BA flight from Glasgow to London City. Just two of us so will probably just transfer to Gatwick on public transport (4 trains). Again, if others doing the same then may be worth sharing a taxi.
  5. Those that know me will confirm that I am never funny. I probably wouldn't wear heels though like Dave does. Accident waiting to happen on the cobbled streets of old town Bratislava. So, if the national dress is what you were talking about, what are you talking about now?
  6. What about tight denim hot pants like those worn by Dave in the Moneysupermarket ads? Would they constitute jeans or are the ok as there are bare legs on show? If not then I might just not bother making the trip. I want my point though. Shit, run the gauntlet of the fashion police or risk punishment for harvesting?
  7. Have just cancelled two x twin rooms at Holiday Inn Trnava (Sun to Wed) so if anyone is looking to stay there but can't find rooms then may be able to nab these.
  8. I think they may well be. The flixbus.com service is pretty regular but after a long day travelling, I wasn't keen on the 90 minute wait for the next service after we land. May be other services but possibly the timetables haven't been posted yet. To be fair, I haven't spent long searching. Still, if there are 8 of us on the same flight then a taxi would make sense at 10 euro each.
  9. Two of us on the Gatwick to Vienna flight on the Sunday. Departing 15:40, arriving 18:50. Were planning on taking a bus to Bratislava but on flix.com just now and we'd have to wait until 20:45 for the next departure. SUre there are other options but if there is anyone on the same flight who'd be up for taking a taxi then PM me. Two more and a standard taxi would be 50 to 60 Euros or an 8 seater would be 79 Euros. Bigger options available with price on inquiry. Cheers Russell
  10. Cheers Scott. Plenty to choose from there but couldn't see any 10-11 or 11-12 years old sizes. Will have a proper look through later.
  11. Any tips on where to find decent Scotland tops/t-shirts for kids, other than the official stuff on JD? My 10 year-old daughter fancied the last away shirt but only stock left is going to be too big. Haven't been able to find any on ebay. She's not keen on the current tops or the training ones with Vauxhall on the front. Doesn't need to be official gear. Cheers
  12. Just sent you a PM
  13. Was chatting with someone tonight who was really upset about his passing. Turns out that when she was 14 she was diagnosed with the same rare kidney disease. She went through a tough time with initial treatment. Her dad met Lomu at a rugby dinner around that time. Couple of days later, she received a letter and a card from him, saying he knew what she was going thought and to stay strong. As many have said today, a genuinely good person and an inspiration to many. That 30 seconds of action against England alone must have inspired countless kids to take up the sport.
  14. If I'm in the wrong fair enough. I'm certainly not proud of how it all unfurled but I wouldn't have had an issue if someone else had been in my shoes and, obviously wrongly, assumed others would have seen it the same way. I definitely didn't expect the reaction of some and didn't take kindly to being shoved around and people screaming in my face over such a minor thing. Especially as It was all well meaning. Parklife, just so that you can sleep easily tonight, I'm not more or less of a fan than anyone else and I've never owned a Glengarry or a feather although I did borrow a Boa once for a fancy dress party. That really has nothing to do with this though. A bit like your comment.
  15. I said "reasonable" people. We traveled together and arrived at the station together. Common sense for me to join the queue and wait for them. I explained this to those next to me. Not, as you suggest, they happened to spot me and jump in. Can see why people reading this are having a laugh so not sure why I am even explaining this. Been a few years since I have taken your bait on here.
