    Where are you all going on holiday?

    I ask as I'm quite excited because in 12 hours I'll be on a plane to Crete for my annual 2 weeks of self abuse.

    Unfortunately I'll be missing Whit Friday! Which isn't too serious as we aren't going this year but would have liked to have helped Marple Band again as we did really well when I last helped them!! I promise I'll be whistling Night Templar on Friday night, sipping B52s in Sorrentos Bar in Ag Nic, 2500 miles away from Denton. Ah well!!

    Crete is gorgeous, been there a few times and enjoyed it each time. You will love it.

    This year we are thinking of doing a grand trip to the South West Coast of the USA. Flying into LA, we are looking to be based in a villa in Palm Springs, and are hoping to then travel to San Diego (for the biggest Zoo in the world), LA (for Disney World, Hollywood, Long Beach etc), Grand Canyon (water rapids rafting), Death Valley trip, maybe Las Vegas if we can manage it too!

    A jam-packed 2 weeks worth eh!

    At work today we had Bob Marley music playing which just completely took me back to this time last year when I was in Turkey. :p

    Going to probably go to Devon or Cornwall this July if the weather stays this hot. If not, then going to get a last minute flight to somewhere hot - not sure where yet!

    I've had a week in Gran Canaria, and a week in Malta so far this year. We are also going to Las Vegas for a week in November, but don't think I'll last that long, so we are looking to go somewhere in August for a week. Either one of the Greek Islands or Canary Islands. :biggrin:

    I don't need to go on holiday. I live in Cornwall! :tongue: My mum and I become tourists on random days throughout the summer. Our adventures include driving to Truro and getting the boat to Falmouth or St Mawes, going to Padstow on a Sunday to listen to a band (if I'm not already playing in it!), or something a little more expensive like going to the Eden project or a similar "tourist attraction." :)

    I'm not going on holiday this summer :frown:, my little expeditions in Japan at Christmas and India at Easter have made me very, very poor so I'm going to spend the long, hot summer days stacking the shelves of Brantano - woooooooooo.
