European Vacation (1 Viewer)



I closed my account
So I guess I'm going to Europe, got my plane ticket,( 12/22/07) and I'll be starting out in London.
I basically wanna use this opportunity to see as many awesome bands and shows and punk houses/squats as I can and also try n work on my book about train culture as well.,..

just wanted to know if anyone had suggestions for cities with the best scenes anywhere in Europe really, I'm happy to travel far and wide!

if there are any winter festivals or gatherings or anything anywhere in europe in december or january i'd like to know that, too

Also any tips would be helpful. I speak a little french and spanish, but I don't feel limited to places where Im fluent in the language. any and all suggestions would be wicked appreciated.

We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

i don't have too much info for you other than i hear the camden area of london has a lot of squats (there's some squatters from there who are on here).

other than that, you should get back to us and let us know how it's going.

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $50.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $50.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $50.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
