Default Numpty goes to Madrid

I may be a little late for the GME but I've got the green light to spend 3 weeks in Madrid next month. It would be great if anyone out there fancies sharing a caña or several - as long as you don't mind the phone going off occasionally. There's even half a chance that TobC might make an appearance.

Quite possibly. I don't have any firm travel plans for Sept yet but chances are I'll be passing through Madrid for one of the weeks.

Which weeks are we talking about?

Cheers

Richard has no plans to be anywhere else in September. Just got back from two weeks away and really wants to chill out. (And diet!!!) Hope to see you there.

I suggested to Mrs. tad that we have a little jolly-up over there, but we'd need some fool to look after the sprogs...

I confirmed my plans this morning. I arrive in Madrid Mon 14th and will be staying three nights.

So I'm up for a beer any of those three nights - Mon-Wed.

Of course all plans subject to change on the whims of customers and bosses.

Cheers
Ken

Shall we say Tues 15th tentatively for now then? Whoever wants to come along that night for a mini GME send me a PM and we'll decide the place to meet etc via PMs. Sound good?

Just arrived in Madrid - apartment by Serrano. The 15th is fine for me - but available for drinks and/or (should there be an 'or' there?) food any night. Contact details available through PM.

S'pose I'd better unpack first...
