What did you do previously that you wouldn't do now?
Stay out partying til 3am and still have enough time to get home, go to sleep and be up and in work for 9am.
Not mind how many stars the hotel had, as long it was reasonably clean.
Go to an outdoor gig over several hours and not care about "the facilities"

I always think that should be the other way around. The pint is the longer drink so that's the one chasing the other.

The Japanese way of perfectly screwing up the following day, but with much less of a hangover.

Or up and down the Swiss Tyrolean mountain roads. Bugger that these days. My stomach would divide and meet at my spine.

Go back to the Netherlands----- Just been back after 10 yrs....and I have picked up the mother and father of a virus infection...The type where you are coughing your guts out whilst losing the feeling in your feet..I remember them well !! They used to have names like the A and B virus .. They used to make you unable to walk on one leg..or lose feeling in an arm...HOW COULD I FORGET ? It is the mother source of all snot and shit....
