    S is for the San Marino Grand Prix

    by sourbugger Written May 5, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Big cars go brum brum...

    San Marino is in the unusual position of hosting a Formula One Grand prix every year´since 1980.

    I was actually in San Marino during the 2003 Gran prix, and sure enough there was a Ferrarri in the main square.

    Unfortunately it was last years car, the driver and the actual race were at Imola in Italy a few miles away.

    As Bernie Ecclestones worldwide circus continues to find new venues to use (or rather to seek out places that allow tobacco sponsorship) the San Marino Grand Prix may well be lost as there already is an Italian Grand Prix every year at Monza.

    A is for aaaaaaaarrrrrgggghhhh ! On the bobsleigh.

    bobsleigh!!!......oh my god......yikes! S**T

    The Bobsleigh / luge track at Sigulda, Latvia, run wheeled bobs in the summer. Even if you are not around at the prescribed times you can get hold of the people who run it and they will make arrangements.

    They drive and break whilst you sit in the middle and get scared. It's actually incredibly smooth so you don't notice the G's your pulling so much. A cool experience and when I did it (about 3 year agos) only about $5.( 3 latis)

    The rest of the town is delightful as well with some very nice walks and a cablecar across the valley. A couple of ski runs too - but not much use in the summer!

    Mad on Sigulda

    L is for Lapping the Lingotto roof...

    by sourbugger Written May 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A truly unique place for a jog - the roof of the Lingotto building, Turin, Italy.

    The roof of the building when it was a factory was a test track : a superb piece of design, it occupied the whole roof of the workshops . Two straights of 443 metres each, joined by parabolic bends, formed a continuous track for testing cars as soon as they left the assembly lines

    The photograph clearly shows this happening.

    Nowadays it is used as a jogging track, and as such provides a great 1.1 Km track to pound the feet on. It is accessed via the lift that leads up to the art gallery (see seperate tip) and is open to all.

    Despite it being February, and covered in snow, and not having proper running shoes I was determined to give in a go. I managed a lap in about five minutes : next time I will be much quicker.

    G is for Gaelic games

    by sourbugger Written May 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fourth biggest stadium in Europe - Gaelic Games in Dublin.

    The GAA claim this place, Croke (pronounced 'Crow') is the fourth biggest stadium in Europe. It's three tiers on the biggest stand certainly give it a dramatic feel.

    Remember its Gaelic games here - hurling and Gaelic football - fast, furious and tough.

    There is a museum here if you are into the history and a museum tour. You also get a chance to whack the slither (is that the right spelling ?)

    Tickets are like gold dust for any big game - but you may get them if you nip in quick on the GAA website. If you get hold of some you will be going home to a heros welcome tonight!

    B is for Beach boys surfin' in Ireland ?

    by sourbugger Written May 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lehinch , County Clare, Irelans is trying very hard to become Surf-town Ireland. There are a number of surf shops around the village offering equipment and lessons. There is also a surf school right on the front in the car park. It claims that it is run by a ex-Irish surfing champion.

    I do however wonder if the Irish are to the world of Surfing what Fiji are to international competative Ice Skating.

    Sourbugger is of the firm opinion that full-body rubber suits should only be used for indoor sports with off-duty Brazilian lapdancers, but, whatever lights your candle...

    E is for Easy fishing for beginners

    by sourbugger Updated May 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beginners luck on Tory Island, Ireland

    I am 35 years old, and this was the first time that I have ever taken my rod out (Fnarr-Fnarr)

    We fished off the quay at the end of the island past East town and I bagged a fish on my very first attempt.

    On the second cast I caught two fish together - to my astonishment..

    I caught Coalfish - although I was really after Pollack (as in the picture) as it is lovely for breakfast.

    It seemed that an hour before high tide was the best time to go, and I'm convinced that the streetlight on the quay helped as well.

    Equipment: No bait needed just a shiny thing that looked like a prat on the end of the line (sorry I really did mean Sprat - thanks Tara)

    I've lost a pollock !

    C is for Cesky Krumlov's river

    by sourbugger Written May 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Row, Row, Row your boat gently down the stream.

    ....belt off... trousers down...life is such a scream. (to Quote General Melchett during his rendition of the boating song in an episode of Blackadder Goes Forth)

    Many hundreds take to the waters here in the summer. Most take the simple trip around the peninsular, fall in a few times and go back to the town.

    There are however a variety of longer trips, with differing degrees of difficulty.

    We took "Trip 5" which was a 15Km raft to Zlaka Koruna. If you put a bit of a sweat on it takes less than 2 hours.

    It is a lovely piece of countryside to easily paddle through and there are always other boats about if you run into any problems - which is very unlikely.

    You could even take a picnic, but I would advise picking it up after you have negotiated the weirs through the town itself as this is the place that if you can come off - you will come off !

    It cost about 850Kr in high season which is quite good value considering the 'Tourist trap' ride round the town is 300Kr

    Equipment: All provided but remember suncream, disposable camera etc

    Land ahoy!

    Come On You Reds

    by cheekymarieh Written Feb 23, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough replaces the old Ayresome Park ground (where the South Koreans had a famous victory against the Italians in the 1966 World Cup). The new Stadium will host an England international in June this year.

    Throughout the football season there are regular Premiership games involving top internationals from several different countries. The team are currently in the Premier Division. Stars on show in the Middlsbrough team alone, at the moment include England internationals Gareth Southgate and Ugo Ehiogu, Slovkian international Szilard Nemeth, Aussie internationals Mark Schwarzer & Tony Vidmar, Cameroon internationals Geremi & Joseph Desire Job and the Italian talent of Massimo Macarrone. (We also had the newly retired Croatian Allan Boksic at the club - but we never saw the best of him ... in fact we saw very little of him at all!)

    Middlesbrough were one of the few teams to have beaten Manchester United twice last year! Alex Ferguson must feel haunted by his ex coach Steve McClaren.

    Equipment: In the winter months make sure you wear plenty of warm clothes as there is often an icy blast coming off the river. You may even want to bring a hat.

    Even if you are not a rider, just to go and see the magnificent creatures in action is a wonderful experience. They must be one of God's finest beauties, so proud and so graceful. I adore them
