    Sydney today Sat...almost winter...cloudless blue skies, sunny, 25 degrees C, no wind.

    Was the same weather all this past week, and forecast for all next week.
    The autumn rains of some weeks ago have made everything green.
    Full moon last night.

    It's just lovely.

    When I travel I think of a city, any city as something I have to pass through to get to the mountains, the valleys, the desert etc.

    I have yet to spend any appreciable amount of my vacation time in a city and I don't see that changing any time soon.

    This is our local city, if you like York. The only drawback is its one of the most popular destinations for American tourists.

    I've had the great pleasure of visiting Chester many times over about 20 years.
    There are so many cheap, but clean, guest houses within easy reach of the centre; probably the best Indian restaurant that side of the hills and the North Wales line to get you up and down the Welsh coast.
    Sadly, the latter has died a death over time but there are still a few nice places.
    Walking the walls is both interesting and relaxing.

    Er, "Alberta" is neither a town nor a city.

    We are on the back end of a trip to Italy, and I was totally blown away by Venice.

    I think this is my favourite city in Europe.

    I've been to Venice on several occasions. When I was working in Dubai some of the lads I went skiing with suggested we go to Venice instead of Amsterdam. Spent most of my time stoned on hash I bought off a black fella that was trying to sell me fake aftershave. Taken the missus there three times now.
