I haven't even been able to unfold the posters from the Air boxset. They are HUGE. Going to have to try online so.

Frames can be brutally expensive here. Cheapest quote I got here was EUR190.00 for a simple A1 frame because it had to be custom made (They don't do A1/2/3/4 sizes over here, they're all 90x60cm / 100x70cm etc.).

Drove 40 mins to Germany and got it for EUR80.00. Still very steep, I thought.

to be frank, too much and not enough

250 for a double tent. 315 for the tent, sleeping bags and a self inflating double mattress. I've not been into the area before, but i'm guessing the shower and toilet queues are smaller?

I think it's been put in beside the boutique camping this year in which case you've proper flushing toilets that are cleaned the whole time so you can go in and relax in the morning to dump your load without fear of vomiting from the smell. I've never used the showers in there though, think you can also buy the wristband to get access the "VIP" area at the side of the main stage. Not sure how much it is but might be worth it. It's got a full bar that stays open late, proper jacks and usually plenty of sitting room if it's pissing rain. Not having access to that area is what I missed most about having the camper van.

I loved venice, especially in the evenings when the crowds of daytrippers are gone. If you're there for a few days I'd get the vaporetto that goes out to Murano, Burano and Torcello which are smaller islands out in the lagoon and like a slower paced version but just as nice. Torcello is a just a collection of churches and barely inhabited but still worth a visit I thought.

it's an extra 65e a person. on top of pink moon, it's pretty pricey.

i've used the showers in the main camping area and they've been fine other than the queue on the sunday. queue for the wimmins was huge mind.

€65 is pretty pricey alright. Don't think I'd pay that much on top of the pink moon fee
