A Weekend Visiting Places Near Beziers

As we had promised ourselves we visited Pezenas today. Saturdays are always market day there and the atmosphere is buzzing. It does not matter what time of the year it is there is something going on. Today there was a local band and many people stopped to listen to them. Those that did not actually stop certainly had a lighter spring in their step as they walked passed. One of the shops that we like to visit while we are in Pezenas is the English Bookshop. The lady there is always welcoming and helpful. Books are not the only thing on sale in the shop she also gets shipped over from the UK some of the things that the ex-pats miss. It probably sounds pathetic when I tell you some of the things that I personally miss. Beef suet, mincemeat and Heinz logo soup are the three things that I bought today, unfortunately the lady did not have any contracts (damn). After visiting the bookshop we went to look for a teashop that we had heard about. We found it very easily about 5 minutes walk from the bookshop. What a lovely little place a proper little teashop with china tea services and china mugs filled to the brim with hot chocolate and whipped cream. They also sell some english produce and guess what? .Yes they had contracts (I...

I'm going to tell you how to attract beautiful women, not only once or twice, but every time you choose. 1. Be positive. Think, "I can". Think, "I am worthy." See the glass as half full, and suddenly the beautiful women in this world will see you as beautiful too. 2. Dress for the part every day. You may not attract beautiful women to you each and every day, but at least you can act as if you do. You do not want to be wearing old torn jeans and a faded T-shirt when she comes along. Be ready. 3.Get into the habit of treating women as people. It may seem obvious as you read it, but all too many men speak to beautiful women while mentally getting into bed with them. It shows, and the women can tell. You'll do better every time if you treat her as an intelligent equal. 4. Find out what she likes to talk about, then talk about it.

Tips for Driving Cross Country

Driving cross country, it's considered the ultimate road trip. Having the independence of seeing the country in a way that is not possible by taking a plane is a very satisfying and liberating experience. The drive can also be a tough one. For those who have not driven for long periods of time, the trip can be guerling unless you're mentally and physically prepared. I have made the trip four times, each time getting easier gaining experience of the do's and don'ts related to the drive. Your trip needs to be well planned out starting with what time of the year you want to travel to how much weight is in the car. These factors will seriously affect your trip and can determine how long it will take you to get to your destination. In my experience, spring and fall are best for traveling. Your car will perform better in milder weather; you'll burn less oil and get better gas mileage not running your air conditioner if traveling in the summer heat which is extremely hard on your car, and you'll also avoid ice and snow if traveling in the winter. Roads are a lot rougher in the winter since icy roads and snow take their toll creating potholes and other road hazards. Milder weather will also make your trip easier if you happen to blow out a tire...

London. The vibrant, beating heart of the United Kingdom. It’s one of the world’s most popular destinations for tourists, and for business travellers too. The amount of commerce that goes through London is staggering, with a financial centre second only to New York, and service industries that cater for both the UK, European and international markets. As the world’s most multicultural city – there are over 300 languages spoken by a population of over eight million people (twelve million if you include the metropolitan area) – the opportunities for business are clear. With the UK strategically positioned for the business traveller on the western edge of Europe, London is a global hub for air travel, providing easy access to mainland Europe, and a stepping stone to the United States. Primarily served by five airports – Heathrow, Gatwick, City, Stansted and Luton – London is easily reached from anywhere in the world. But with the exception of London City Airport – smallest of the five and located in East London, close to the business district of Canary Wharf – the other four airports are satellites evenly dispersed around the city. The most popular, Heathrow, is located to the west of London; Gatwick is situated to the south; Stansted to the north east; and Luton to the North West. Knowing this before you make your travel plans can be useful. Since...
