My nephew has wanted to go to Africa for a long time and was trying to find out about any trips that might involve working with endangered animals. I am sure there aren't many people that have done this, but if anyone has any experiences they could share, we would really like to hear from you.
Do you know anyone who might have a room/flat available in the city, either temporary or longer term? My son has just started his masters there and is still couch surfing as there is an acute shortage of student accommodation. He is responsible and a non smoker. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,Just had the following ferry offer mailed to me by FerryCheap: www.ferrycheap.com/seafrance Only £40 Return, for a car and 5 passengers Valid Fridays, Saturday and Sundays too. Dover to Calais Frequent sailings All bookings must be made online by 19th March 2010. As I imagine I can't be the only one who regularly needs to take the car over to Brussels from the UK (can't really take that much with you on a Eurostar).Saw the book by date and thought this would make a good first post!Mo
We are looking for Belgian seaside accommodation for three weeks in August (probably July 31-August 21) for 2 adults and 2 young children. Ideally we would like to have a sea view. If you have a property to rent which might suit (or even one which is larger as we have family and friends who could join us), please email Julia at [email protected] Many thanks.
For many years now, I have been a member of an American chat-room..., and I sent them this post today. For those of you who have not been in Belgium for a long time, perhaps you might find this interesting. Yesterday, I sent them a message and asked them all if they had ever heard of Johnny Hallyday. (I asked them not to Google !) Seven replied saying that they had never heard of him ! -------------------- I find this amusing ! When I arrived in Belgium all those years ago, I had never heard of him either..., likewise Claude François, Jacques Brel and many others. (all of them at the time, singing and making millions) Apart from Jacques Brel who sang all his own work and Claude François who occasionally wrote songs for Frank Sinatra, most were copying the British and American hit parade melodies and adapting their French interpretations. To such an extent that many of the young today believe that the French versions are the originals. And that's where Johnny Hallyday comes in ! Personally, I can't stand the sight of him ! (pretentious) http://www.johnnyhallyday.com/ Concerning the others, I suppose I shouldn't generalise as some of them were really great..., Serge Gainsburg for example and his wife Jane Birkin. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHiMDB19Dyc Anyway, Hallyday is the French "King" of rock (born in Belgium) and he's in an artificial coma in California following a botched up operation in Paris. A friend of his operated on him, (a spinal hernia) and he needed an emergency follow-up operation by a specialist in Los Angeles, I believe. The French doctor was attacked yesterday and beaten up by two hoodies..., an incident obviously related to the operation. I only asked that question simply to see if the American public would be following the story..., but as 100% of you, (all seven) don't even know who he is, I suppose the story will pass unnoticed.
To celebrate my 70th birthday next year I plan to walk from my home in the Aude to the house in Blackpool, Lancashire, where I was born. Taking 70 days for the walk and arriving at the house of my birth exactly 70 years after the event. I have a blog for interested parties at: http://vicsbigwalk.blogspot.com
Hello,my name is Valerie, I am 22, Austrian, but currently living in Spain. I am working on a project that might be of interest to some of you. Let me tell you a little bit about it: Not long ago we launched the campaign The Pull and Bear World Project. Young artists/entrepreneurs with fresh, new and original projects are welcome to participate and send a video explaining their idea (max. 1 min). Once submitted, they have to try to achieve as many votes as possible, and the 3 winners will be able to realize the project of their life!! If you are interested, please go to http://www.pullandbear.com and have a look!!Thank you;)
