Heading to Luton to stay at @HIExpress. Flying to Riga tomorrow.Starting weekend away at @PlumSpiltMilk. Arrived a bit late for my 6pm booking (latest for set menu) but they're being nice about it.

It'll be even better to hit Bratislava's Christmas markets with him.Looking for interesting/new things to see and do in Riga -- I've been to all the obvious tourist sites. Any ideas?@SkanuMezs I'll be at the festival next weekend, and staying a couple more days. Any tips for interesting music venues in the city?Found good tips for Riga on @spottedbylocals. Next weekend will be my first time there in ages, looking forward to seeing what's changed.@_youhadonejob RT @stejvic: always thought horoscopes were a load of nonsense.

I've bought a e-tickets and I'm looking forward to it!@SkanuMezs Thanks. Are they e-tickets? I don't know whether there will be time for them to be posted to the UK.@travelfish They appear in Kayak results. That's the only reason I can imagine.I'll never try to book with @edreams_en again. Trying to pay with any card other than MC debit adds £20-35 to price. PayPal adds £30.@SkanuMezs Ticketservice.lv is a bit confusing. For weekend (10&11 Oct) do I just buy the 30 euro ticket?Great to see this guide I fact-checked: @dkbooks Eyewitness Myanmar (Burma). Pub 1 Oct, good looking book as always. http://t.co/PcJTjLMVTJ@_DonaldS @matthewteller The thinness is what makes a large screen phone pocketable. As long as battery lasts a day that's OK for me.@matthewteller I guess it's personal preference. Everything looks far too small to me on iPhone 5 screen. 4.7 to 5 inch far more usable.@matthewteller Once you've used a bigger phone you won't want to go back. I'm just amazed it took Apple so long to catch up with Android.
