Me too. They don't really have a kids casino but the place is crazy enough to. Can't wait for the next trip.

Very keen on that one.

i hear what you're saying, but it's only 4ish hours from Calgary to NY, and 4ish hours from NY to Denver.

We are skiing for 2 weeks at Snowmass which is 20 mins from Aspen, so no need to go to Whistler.

In that case Niagara is great, but as Cam said not too much to do around there. Toronto is nice but nothing exciting. If you want to stay in Canada I would go to Montreal, the city is great and some nice day trips you can do (Laurentians for example)


With some of the responses, some of you blokes mustn't have children.

Yep, life is great :D

I'm not sure who you're referring to here. But with kids in mind I actually stands by Cuba as a suggestion because it would be a great cultural experience.

Also i know there were comments about it being like crappy dangerous places,  but by all accounts its a very safe place just impoverished

Where would you stay in Dublin Ireland ?

I'm thinking the Shelbourne,i stayed there about 12 years ago .

I still think it's one of the great hotels.

As its a holiday with a "High tea " theme ,there high tea will be  :scratchchin: perfect for this part of the trip.

Ask my cousin he stays in all the fancy hotels over there when he is visiting his relos. He has super expensive taste so I'm sure it will work perfectly for you Rob.

Was in one of the last locations of a guys' trip in Europe - Paris, and came across a mob called 'Fast and Precious', who were hanging around the Eiffel Tower, with a few exotics to rent. Very reasonable prices, compared to something similar in Oz, and some nice tunnels/straights, if you're lucky. I drove an LP-560 Spyder yesterday (110 Euros, including 'premium', excess-free insurance, for 20 mins). They also had a beautiful lime green MP4-12C (140), a Huracan (150), and an army of Ferrari Californias (110). After the drive, I lamented about how much I loved Lamborghini V12s, and how it was a shame that they didn't have an Aventador, to which the guy I was speaking to replied 'we'll have one tomorrow, when we're in front of Louis Vuitton, at Champs-Elysées'. Turns out they have a large collection in downtown Paris, including a 488 (150), an F12 (didn't get a price, but I imagine it'd be similar to the Aventador, which was 250), a Bentley and a pair of Rolls-Royces (available per day, upon request), another McLaren (I think it may have been a 650), and a few others (AMG GT etc.). Went back today, and drove what is apparently 1 of only 2 Aventador Spyders in France (:scratch chin:). Each time was with pretty chill guys, who encouraged spirited driving at the right moments, and were not clock-watchers (I think I got around 25 min in the Gallardo, and 30+ in the Aventador). They're happy to take you around to monuments for pictures + plenty of pictures/videos when you get back, as long as no-one's waiting. One thing that was a bit suss, was the contract that arrived in my email, which confirmed full insurance cover for 25+ year olds, but they let me and a mate have a few drives, being only 22 YO :scratchchin:.

Was still definitely an exciting/worthy experience, and that last part is the only thing that would stop me from doing it again, but I'm guessing that's not an issue for most people on here.
