It's got the huge Selfridges but I suspose thats not much to you coming from London. You can come to Aberystwyth were I live, direct train line Birmingham to Aber. It's my 20th birthday on Saturday so you can to the pubs with me,nothing else to do in Aber. We're a town of students and pubs!!!

There's the old Jewellery Quarter with lots of nice jewellery shops. It's near Hockley or Handsworth or somewhere like that. There is also a good museum/art gallery if you are interested in that sort of thing.

The youth of today are wonderful except for the daft, sad male adolescents that are the trolls. Perhaps they'll feel like proper men when they lose their virginity. Mind you, who'd have 'em?

yeah i did. thanks for all the suggestions.

i don't know why i went there, i just chose it. but after i decided a friend wanted to come with me and her aunt lives there, so it was free accomodation.

it was a good trip. but it rained for most of it. when i was on my way back from cadbury's world (which was great) i got lost and people kept on giving me wrong directions (i think they did it on purpose as all i could ask were the chavs and hoodies, that says it all). i was wondering round for 2 hours!!

but on the way back, i got on a wrong london train, and had to buy a new ticket for 50 squid. got me so annoyed.

i'll let you know my next weekend trip, probs be some time though as i've got exams all june.
