2017 Holiday Thread!

Like i said earlier. We like it here but it is too spread out and hilly and for that reason we prefer Puerto Del Carmen on Lanzarote as it is easier to get around.

It is still nice here though and I would recommend it.

i have decided too take a few months out next year too go on a total relaxed holiday by myself.

Just to absorb the country, explore and just not have a care in the world.

Suggestions anyone?

Not sure whether to just stay in one place ive never been or do the whole backpacking thing.

Costa Adeje was very hot in day time.

Over 90 each day from 12 til 5.

Looking for somewhere to pitch tent next weekend.

Got back from my trip to the Netherlands tonight. The best week of my life! Absolutely breathtaking places - Leiden, Haarlem, Amsterdam, Rotterdam/Kinderdijk and Keukenhof. 

Lucked out on the weather, too, which was great all week including 28C on Wednesday

Was looking at Rotterdam for a weekend break only last week, what's the verdict mate?

Is there enough to do?

It was ok. There's a lot of unique structures but not an awful lot to do. The Erasmusbrug has some spectacular views, though, as does the area where the Hotel New York is.

If you do go (and the weather's good), I strongly recommend you hop on the waterbus to Kinderdijk. It's a World Heritage Site and a brilliant experience.

Going to Belgium in 5 weeks for 3 nights. Staying in Gent and will visit Bruges and half-day in Brussels. I've got Maastricht planned for one day but it's 2.5 hours travel and I'm not sure it'll be worth it. Any suggestions for good Belgian cities please? And good beers

Prague booked for early September. The images and videos I've seen of the city look absolutely gorgeous

Prague is beautiful and September is always a good time of year to head into Europe.

I'm flirting with a trip away, maybe Budapest.

Just over 5 weeks until my holiday. I can't wait.

Where you going. 

I'm not going abroad this year, instead, i'm off to Wales. :) Can't wait, the B&B is amazing, in the middles of nowhere!!! 

You wake up with cows mooing. Very peaceful, going to Pembrokeshire for 3 nights. For her family to meet mine, well just the parents.

Can't beat they types of Holidays BB sometimes better than going abroad although some nice weather when away is just what you need 

Yeah I do love the countryside. Wanna move out to a house or small holding within the next 10 years. Then that will be my forever home away from the general public!!!!!

Going to Majorca (Palma nova).. I like Wales I went for a few days in May, Problem is that you can't rely on the weather here.

Majorca is nice, went to Alcudia many moons ago with the parents haha. Good thought, remember being in the pool and this lass was in the pool too and she stood up and her tit was hanging out but she didn't know. I was only 14 haha, one of the best days of my life.
