    Away to Colombia and Peru for 4 weeks at the start of Feb, have a little 3 day trip to Nice booked in the spring and couple of weeks in Greece in the summer. Oh how I do hate working and living in Europe.

    What about yourselves?

    That must be very exhausting for you Leur.
    You need to treat yourself to something special once it’s over.

    As for my holiday plan? It will be 10 days in Spain or Portugal though tbh I’m just as happy staying at home and since retiring have big plans for a vegetable garden.

    A week in Nice, a few days in Stockholm and London. Agree with Drew, I'm happiest at home.

    This year it’s domestic US travel, all family/friends oriented. SoCal, New England, Florida, plus some time on a river yet to be decided. Add me to the list of those who are happy at home. My wife has the travel bug which I benefit from, as she does the arrangements. Most recently with a friend, 3 weeks in Devon and London.

    I would suggest Vietnam but your wife might need to say she's from Mongolia or somewhere, they're not fand of the Chinese. Other than that beautiful place and lovely people though.

    We are off, yet again, to Cuba on the 14th February then who knows where later on in the year. Probably a couple of trips to Quebec to visit family there (my dad and sister and her family) and hopefully some Camping...tent.

    Not in Cuba. There are not "a lot" of courses there, though they do have, at least one, on Cayo Santa Maria.

    My 'partimepartner' (hate using boyfriend at my age) would go on holiday a few times a year if he could afford it whereas I don't like being out of the country for more than 10 days so it's a bit of a problem when it comes to planning a holiday. I just can't bring myself to spend excessive amounts on a holiday and would prefer to spend it on something more lasting like my home.
    Last summer we lost an £800 deposit on a 19 day Florida holiday as I couldn't navigate the visa waiver website. I reimbursed most of his deposit because it felt like my fault. I'll never book a USA holiday again and that disappoints him.
