One week in Berlin and one in Budapest. recharging my batteries before starting at Uni again. Pure relaxing. I have been toying with the idea of writing a book, I will try to see if I can get started...



But speaking about books, I need to fill my iPod wit some audiobooks. Any recommendations from the Audible page? Remember I am mostly intereseted in non fiction. Perhaps somethng seriously (not a talk show Ann Coulter type thing please) from a republican perspective?

    Ah-ha you bastard!!! Youth is wasted on the young!!!



    I just took in 1776 by David McCullough, who reads his own book about 90% of the time, with occasionall timeouts where another woman reads. Since McCullough does the voiceovers for most of Ken Burns' documentaries, the audiobook sounds like a million dollars, and then when you throw on top of that McCullough's easy narrative, it's a real treat.



    (iTunes will save you money on the book IIRC.)



    Also, can you explain whole the Advavit thing?

    "Shadow Divers" by Robert Kurson ... non-fiction



    Try something by Patrick O'Brien if you like historical Fiction ... but based around real events. (he wrote the Master and Commander books)



    Easier to relax if you avoid politics

    Perhaps books by Fareed Zakaria, Thomas Friedman, Robert Kagan, or Milton Friedman.

    When will you be in Budapest? August 25th is the Budapest Parade, I'll be there drinking my arse off. Just imagine a million drunk half naked people.

    Great, you won't be disappointed. Even if I didn't tell you the event would be very hard to miss as theres over a million people crowded downtown. I've gone for the last three years and have not been dissapointed. More putang then you can shake a stick at (guaranteed ).



    I'm staying here -> http://www.budapesthotels.com/hotels/Hold.asp



    Below is a great sight that shows some pictures and locations of night clubs in Budapest, I highly, highly recommend going to check out the club scene while your there. (if you don't you'll miss a chance of a life time, clubs in Budapest are nothing like the US).
