    have you been before if so whats it like.

    My main aim is to get to Montana, I've got the time off booked so now just trying to work out the flights. Would like a trip back to the Nurburgring although that's looking less likely as I can't get a matching weekend with the friends I'd like to go with, also wanting to try and get to Latvia. Completely messed up my holidays last year which meant I only managed two days off, I don't want to repeat theat mistake.

    Off to Spain for 3 weeks in July and can't wait - it's like a second home to me over there;-)

    yes once last year, was fab, will share the same villa with family, own pool etc, my kids loved it!

    went august last year and it was scorching, end of may this year so hopefully it will be more bareable but still hot!

    nope, nowhere for us, but hope those going have a real fab time x

    Dunno, I'm pondering over it. The last few years I've stayed in the UK and went down to Devon & Cornwall coz I got fed up with the hassle of going abroad.

    I'm thinking about a cruise this year, I grudge having to pay double the price tho coz they rarely do single prices.

    If the cruise thing doesnt work out then i'll probably be looking at a couple of weeks in Vegas or San Francisco....dunno yet. Havent really thought about it too much, but I do want to go away somewhere nice.

    Well, we had real fun and games.

    We had been to cuba before but stopped in varadero at one of the iberostar hotels which was fantastic.
    We got a good deal at the blau colonial on the cayo's and thought why not, mixed reviews on tripadvisor which i suppose you take with a pinch of salt. OMG how we were wrong.
    I won't bore you with the details but our stay, along with a party of 20-30 other guests who arrived the day we did, lasted one evening, we moved to the oasis playa coco the following morning.
    The Blau Colonial was truly awful.

    The tryp is next door isn't it? We didn't go but heard it was ok.

    The oasis playa coco was fine...but the blau really was a hell hole.
    It needed a massive refurb and new management and i'm sure it could be nice.

    Definately put us off the cayos though.

    Enjoy your Tryp ;-)

    Blackpool with a Spanish accent really... :lol:

    We're going to the Playa Del Highlands with a group of friends. We all have young babies so we're keeping it simple by renting a Cottage and a bit of hill walking and sight seeing/photography.

    Plus the fact the Euro is so shafted means going abroad is out of the question.

    6 weeks and me and my gf off to mexico!! =)

    Off 2 Ayia Napa in August

    Vegas next Weds week......woo hoo

    No where planned yet, I was sopposed to be going to Normandy for D-day, but cancelled that as I wanted to go to the download festival more.

    I am hoping to go to Budapest with my best friend later on in the year, and go and do all the historical sites with him, as he didn't get to do them when he went with his ex

    It's great up until the point you realise the tragedy of the whole place. Then it kinda feels like Disneyland with a venereal disease.

    Going away to Florida for a spot of golf, then California later in the year for a spot of lazing around. Hopefully going to Tokyo around November too.

    Can't quite remember the cost but what i recommend you do is go on tripadvisor, search for vegas and look at the vegas forum las-vegas-hotels.tripadvisor.com/Sho…tml

    You will find some great help and info.

    Also, the first time you step off the plane and see the strip it really is an amazing sight, it just doesn't look real. I want to go NOW !!!!!!
