*stares at the clock*
permalink where you going?
i'd love to get in a couple of european cuntries before boris screws it all
permalink France,
Brittany first, then Angers, then Sancerre, then elsewhere TBC.
permalink Angers is an *excellent* city.
I was there about 15 years ago, eating truffle omelettes for breakfast, washed down with the local cognac style hooch. Lots of decent historical stuff too.
permalink That's good to know, we picked it at random based purely on location.
And the fact it looks reasonably pretty.
permalink Wigan is twinned with Angers.
I don't really know why, as much as I love Wigan it's not a patch on Angers.
permalink I don't think twinning works on a like-for-like basis
permalink Some sort of points-based system?
permalink Who knows, just the agreement of councils I guess.
Although it seems to be partly be to promote tourism, and I bet there aren't many tourists in Wigan.
permalink Isn't it mostly related to tourism...
where the tourists in question are councillors?
permalink Angers is also twinned with Osnabrück.
It's clearly just the best cities.
permalink I didn't know they were cheating on us
permalink That's usually how it works innit?
Osnabrück e,g is twinned with Derby and Tweer in Russia and Harlem in NL ans some town in Turkey and South Korea as well.
