More about Dukes at Queens

Youth Hotel - if your age...

by Angieng

Youth Hotel - if your age permit. Great budget in good locations with the opportunity of meeting people from all over the world.

If you have a bit more budget. Go for Bed & Breakfast. Great place in a homely environment where you can meet and socialise with the host in a typically British home environment.
Sorry, the price that I used to enjoy must be totally out... B&B is my favorite. Good price for good locations. Facilities is not available, but who cares for facilities if you are out sightseeing everyday.

Rustic Charm

by Wowmoment about Mill Cottage

A converted Mill near Frome, Somerset provides and ideal break for 2 - 20+ people in various houses and cottages. Breaks can be booked from 3 days.

I am a big fan of self catering, I like the freedom it gives. Wear what you like for breakfast! This group of cottages is a picturesque delight. The rooms are all to a high standard but comfortable and in keeping with the rural environment.

The cottages are well placed for visiting Bath, Salisbury, Glastonbury, Wells etc.

The first maternity hospital?

by leics

In 1794, the 'Ladies Humane Society' set up a 'lying-in' hospital in this building, to provide a safe environment for 'poor, respectable women' to have their babies.

You can find the building at 25 Donegall Street, in the Cathedral quarter.

Belfast is beautiful

by arty_girl

If you've never been to belfast before, take the bus tour around the center of town, it will fill you in on all the history and current happenings in a safe, enjoyable environment. Belfast tends to get bad press within the media but form living here, I can tell you that it is not the war zone that it's made out to be. Yes, there are dangerous areas in Belfast but you get this in ALL cities. The transport within belfast is improving, there are trains travelling from Great Victoria Street station to various other parts of Ireland regularly (Dublin, Bangor, Carrickfergus,Londonderry etc etc) as well as this there are the 'Metro' buses which are cheap to travel on while being generally on time and comfortable. There's a great nightlife in belfast for all age groups. From the average teenage nightlife to sophisticated evenings for the adults. I'd say the best thing about belfast is the beautiful architecture and the wealth of culture. The city hall is a grand building which has regular tours operating throughout the day. There's also a tourist office in the street opposite the cityhall which can tell you current events within the city. Queen's university is worth a look also and is nearby some nice restaurants and bars which aren't all aimed at students. Once again the architecture here is lovely and isn't far form reasonably priced hotels and B & B's. If you want to know anymore then drop me a line and I'd be more than happy to help! (Photos to come soon!)

Monument to Unknown Women Worker

by suvanki

Stepping outside the Europa bus station, I came across this bronze statue of two women. Since returning home, I have found out that it is a piece by Louise Walsh.

It was originally commissioned by the Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland, then this was taken over by Glenbank Estates Limited, due to a disagreement over the interpretation of the planned theme.
Apparently, the original plan was to remember Amelia Street (which was known as a 'Red Light Area') and to feature 2 women as cartoon figures.

Louise Walsh objected to this, on the grounds that it was offensive to portray women this way. She suggested that instead, the figures should represent the struggles of women, faced with being underpaid in their employment or being unpaid for housework.

Look at the statues and you'll see they have household articles, cash registers, telephones and a shopping basket attached, to represent these aspects of womens life, both as paid and unpaid workers.

The statues depict strong women, not downtrodden, but battlers!

Belfast owes a debt to their female citizens who toiled in the linen factories, making it the largest and most famous linen industry worldwide. Other Belfast women toiled in the factories, Shipyards, shops, offices and hospitals etc.

In more modern times-'The Troubles' were a time of high unemployment, again the women of Belfast were heroic in continuing their struggle to earn money to support their families, and put food on the table.

Sketching/watercolor course in Italy

by maxeha

I would like to find a sketching or watercolor course in Italy or Ticino for next May or June, preferably in a non-city environment where there is also walking or hiking. I speak some Italian so I would prefer a course in Italian to help my Italian.

Brussels vs Dublin: Which one?

by carlosjrferrer

Hi All,

I am trying to get opinions on what cities to visit for a long vacation/stay. I would like to compare Brussels and Dublin in the following:

1) Cost of living
2) Cleanness of city
3) Nice environment
4) How safe they are
5) What is the general attitude of people
6) What to do, what to avoid
Anything you can comment would be appreciated

Kindly,

Carlos

Re: Brussels vs Dublin: Which one?

by belgianchocolate

Thats a hard one...

I think Brussels is cheaper for living. For food , renting an appartment...
Dublin is cleaner. Brussels is a Belgian city. ;-)

Nice enviroment , Ireland is a beautifull country. It can not be compared to Belgium. Completely different.
But Belgium is for sure a land to get to know better. Great architecture , history , food. Everything is close and easy to reach.

The general attitude? I guess Brussels has more a cosmopolitan edge. Probably one of the most mixed cities in the world. Every quarter has its own atmosphere. Dublin is more a little town compared to Brussels.

I would know what to choose. But it is more like your own taste I gues and what you expect.

Re: Re: Brussels vs Dublin: Which one?

by Mahieu

Well,

Dublin for the friendliness of its people, for the great atmosphere, for the beautiful environment just outside Dublin and for its history.

Brussels for its cosmopolitan/international character, for the great location in Europe, for its architecture and different districts.

Both rather clean and safe cities (depending on the areas of course), both expensive to live.

HI Carlos have you landed in Belgium yet?

Re: Re: Brussels vs Dublin: Which one?

by carlosjrferrer

Thanks to all.

I will be arriving next Monday in Brussels.

Re: Re: Brussels vs Dublin: Which one?

by irisbe

oh great but were you moving to Gent ? or was it Leuven?
The question about Brussels or Dublin is really difficult to answer :)

Re: Re: Brussels vs Dublin: Which one?

by irisbe

I liked Dublin, the people are friendly
but in no means ask them for directions hahaha
they simply can't explain how you need to go :-)
it was sooo funny.

Re: Re: Brussels vs Dublin: Which one?

by carlosjrferrer

I found a good deal to stay in Brussels. I mean good accommodation. Hope to meet you there!

Carlos

hola

by solecf

Hi,
Iam thinking about spending some time in a place to attend to languages classes for a while. I was thinking about Romania because it would be cheap to live and study over there, but i wanted to know if someone else knows a better place.
My idea is to go for three/four months to a city, rent a small place and attend to classes of german, italian and french, i have the conversation skills so i only need a good class of grammar to have a better level of these lanauges. Go to one of these countries cost a lot so my idea is to move to another place, east of europe, and join languages clases while iam in a new country...
What about Slovakia...is it cheap? Budapest is more expensive and Prague even more...Turkey? is it cheap to live there for few months...
thanks

Re: hola

by sihi

Maybe Krakow or Gdansk?
Krakow is TOP 10 cities of the world.

Slovakia-could not be expensive.
I havent been to Romania but i think it is interesting.
:)

Re: Re: hola

by solecf

mmmmm.krakow..yes, i didnt think about over there, and everybody talks so good about it...i may check it
thanks :)

Re: hola

by Martin_S.

Another possibility is Israel, there are programs where you can live on an agricultural settlement and work for part of the day to pay for studying part of the day. The advantage is that you get to use your new language in a total environment, work and relaxation after work.
Then you can take time on weekends to travel and see Israel.
