    Text is hardly going to take a long time to load! It's images that take a long time, not text - look at the size of your word documents compared to a simgle image.

    I've just noticed something else - the cheapest price in the OP's offer is near the Gare du Nord, and it is not a very nice area - like London, you need to pick carefully, not all of Paris is the city of love!

    Offer looks really good but I've done Paris several times ... which of the other places in the offer would people recommend? Brussels is the other capital city so I thought that would be the obvious choice .... unless someone can tell me any different.

    Noted, but sometimes, you may want to check if it's worth while looking into or if you're accessing at work, it can be a pain to try & get hold of the information you need quickly & I was trying to cover the bases.

    I can only find an offer relating to June 2004 - am I reading this wrongly?
    My dream - stop giving someone else 40 hours a week of my life, and work for myself (currently doing both)
