You mentioned getting round easily on the train but how quickly can you get around as well? I would presume the transport network is very extensive in such a developed and spread out city. 

Also, would you say most of the attractions are in a compact area such as they are in many cities or are they spread out throughout the city and outskirts? 

You get around very quick on their trains , and you don't seem to wait more than 5 minutes either. i would say they are spread out , but as I said it's so easy just changing trains there as no waiting about for them

. The Tokyo Zoo is a good attraction too , that's not central Tokyo , but still not hard to get to with their train system.

Or get an airbnb. Get out of Tokyo too. Kyoto is bloody lovely. Sapporo next for me in Japan i reckon.

Yes this sounds good Matt as well. Never went on the bullet train , but seen it go by at speed , of which i was told it's going slow as it's moving in the City it goes miles faster out of Tokyo City never seen a train move as fast as that did , it's expensive though to go on it , but their trains were very reasonable , cheaper than ours , but that goes without saying.

Went to buy some Irouleguy for the first time in several decades at the Cave D'Irouleguy. It was as different as worlds can be from the last time, The first occasion it was all men serving who looked like they'd just come in from the vines and were disagreeably Gauloise to the centimetre. Now it looks like an operating theater and is full of smiling helpful women. Is it an improvement ? No it's progress.

I have to admit I'm disappointed with the Pays Basque.

It seems overcrowded everywhere except in the middle of nowhere and tourist tat everywhere. The restaurants outside the mian towns only seem to do a menu with one thing on it and this has led to us being lunchtime pilgrims.

The scenery is beautiful though  and the local people seem great

Still Britainy to come yet so I live in hope.

Something our restrictions means we can't eat !

Won't bore you with details.

All we need is choice to get it sorted.

I should say the menus are good value and will almost certainly be well cooked. So if you can eat them it more authentic than than a burger or Pizza.

South of France is far from being at its best in August, being filled with Parisian holiday-makers.
