Objective complete! http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c188/VikingG/smile.gif I have Spanish-orange skin - with some pink patches here and there and a big white stripe across the middle (VikingGrandma wouldn't let me wear my warrior-thong on the beach) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I can't believe it's even hotter here in the UK today than in Mallorca... How I miss the hotel room air-con - a stark contrast to the hot air currently blowing on my leg from the back of my PC http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif The phrase 'out of the frying pan and into the fire' springs to mind.

I almost finished 'Das Boot' while I was away... I'm near the end of the Gibraltar chapter http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif. I had some thoughts on the book which I'd like to hear your opinions on when I've finished reading it. I really need to see the film again too!

Naturally, there's been lots of forum activity over the last 10 days, which I will try to catch up on. I've already seen a few interesting threads/posts I'd like to follow up.

Not seen any locked threads yet, so I trust you have all been behaving well!? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Welcome back http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Mallorca ? I bet you saw a lot of drunken germans there ?

So many germans go there that Mallorca (or Malle how many people call it) is already called a colony. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Celeon was never there http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yes there were plenty of drunk Germans, and Italians too. The resort we went to does not have so many British visitors - more German, Italian and Spanish.

The resort is so popular with Germans that they even serve fine quality weissbier at the beach bar!


Makes my mouth water just looking at it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

A very nice young German girl who was working in one of the bars introduced us to a Cuban cocktail called a 'Mojito' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mojito). I swear that this drink helps to prevent hangovers!
