After numerous requests from pals and strangers to recommend pubs, hotels, football grounds and so on, I've decided to pool all the information into a handy online repository here. Please bear in mind that I'm not trying to compete with any of the established sources of travel info - merely this is a collection of my own experiences, thoughts and suggestions. All opinions are purely those of the author (Paul Allison) and are not the view of NATA. Please also bear in mind my Likes and Dislikes and my Top Fives when deciding whether to take on board (or ignore) what I am saying! Happy travelling.
