booked a villa in Spain for a week and have just booked Florida for 2 weeks next year
Nice, we are thinking of heading to Florida next year
Lanzarote next week for a week. Weekend in Bruges for our wedding anniversary in Sept. Just looking at a week / weekend trip to the US Oct / Nov time now but can't decide where we want to go.
Back from Fuerteventura about three weeks ago, off to Rome in three.
Is that after the play-off final?
Off to Fuerteventura on Saturday, how was the weather?
The Florida trip is a huge family trip 12 of us in an 8 bedroom house
Hopefully there’s plenty of other rooms for my unsociable moments
But it will be great memories for the kids
I've been, you'll have a great time Daz. If I could give you one tip - make sure you have a satnav!
Oh shit, the exact day of it. I was never planning to go if we made it anyway, I don't think my nerves could handle it
Really good, about 23 or 24 each day with a bit of breeze so it was just the right temperature for me. The one day where the weather was less than great, it was about three hours of cloud at most and then back to sun in the afternoon. I'd imagine you've got a solid week of sun ahead of you
My wife and her cousin are in charge and said they’ll drive so I’m just leaving them to it
Lucky you - I'm struggling to afford a weekend in Bognor
I have the same problem. But at least I am lots closer to home. Visiting family in France. There are two airports within an hours drive. But they only fly to England every few days. And the same the other way. So will have a 6 hour drive to Calais and then another two hours drive to the game frim Dover. With the ferry crossing it will be about 11 hours each way.
The Chunnel is an hour quicker. But the boat breaks up the journey better.
I'm away for the play off final as well, piss poor planning.
I'd like to think that the fact I won't be able to follow the game at all is the reverse jinx that will guarantee that not only do we make it there but win in style.
Cheers! Let's hope it's not ruined by a certain football team on Saturday. Take off is at 4.30 so hopefully I will land with us in the play offs
Sunny Skye in early June here!
drive then ferry? How long does that take NW?
Drive then bridge nowadays.
But still, four hours to Carlisle, stop overnight (Astute or anyone local, any tips for good places to eat in Carlisle?!?) then four hours to Glencoe, stop overnight, then four hours to Skye. Way back will have a stop near the Bells whisky distillery.
Never done Scotland before, bar popping over the border just to say I've been(!) so figured I may as well go big or go home.
Only usually go straight past Carlisle on the way to Scotland.
But there is an excellent place caled David's. Not cheap but also not too expensive. The food is hard to beat. And that includes top restaurants. Not the sort of place I would take my little lad. But the girls yes as they are.never a problem.
Have the place set on my sat nav somewhere. Think it is Warwick Street.
Just found their website. Here is the spring/summer menu
Driving down to Mallorca in July. Taking about three weeks and going to stop in a few places, possibly knock Andorra off the list too!
Currently trying to sort out a belated Honeymoon (thinking possibly Bahamas/USA or Asia somewhere) and a weekend away in September.
No doubt will be in Berlin and or Munich in the coming months for 'work' too.
Also off to:
Verona in June
San Vito Li Capo in Sicily in July
Verona and Ibiza in September
NY in Oct
Ta. I see what you mean, not... cheap, but not stupid on budget either. Might be tested!
The midges will be waiting for you!!!
Midweek prices are excellent. More costly at weekend. But not too bad if you are not feeding kids. And I have paid a lot more and not enjoyed the food at all in other places.
There is a good Italian in the centre with parking outside. It is right outside the fort. But I am not keen on Italian so can't remember what it is called.
That is Scotland for you
They've been around for about a month now and they're only going to get worse. I was told last week that eating a spoonful or marmite a day works but the problem with that is having to eat marmite.
They're going to redevelop Riley Square Bell Green,so knocking our block of flats down. We were told this April/May but now it's going to be end of this year or start of 2019. Told we're all due compensation and me a bungalow too ? So if I get decent money I'll be off on a walking/trekking holiday somewhere. Can't wait.
But as I don't think ahead too much I'll be happy with a Wembley trip shortly ?
I've been hiking in Scotland and me and my lad got bit badly by midges. You'll never get rid of them, they're there to stay !
We'll see if this is an elaborate practical joke or not.
Avon's spray finds calling as midge repellent for Royal Marines
At least I'll smell nice!
Its true - went and rode the North Coast 500 a year or so back and used it , keeps them away generally - used the Avon stuff - its more like oil - doesnt smell too bad - they sell it in the garages up there
Off to Russia for the world cup Then looking at Crete for October half-term if im still alive
going to France with my lot and my brother and his lot. Renting a villa with a pool etc so a week of chilling out and on the bike in the mornings. Go up to Scotland a few more times but that's about it.
We are saving for a florida trip for the kids in a few years time when they are old enough to appreciate it.
I'm knocking one off the bucket list this year.
Going to the Open at Carnoustie in July, camping for 3 days on site!
2 of my favorite slices of heaven on earth.....Anglesey & the Lake District for me & mine......
.....and breaking my own environmental code for the greater family good, I've also agreed we can fly to portugal later this year too.
