Florida*** Been suitable admonished by Mandie with not explaining about florida, I have never been abroad in my life and now that I am on my own my children and grandchildren decided that I was going on holiday with them this year, so I said yes and left it up to them where we where going and guess what, Im 67 years old have a heart condition and I am going to Orlando in 7 weeks time (cant wait) a 9 hour flight when the highest I have ever been is the top of Blackpool Tower The furthest abroad I have ever been is New Brighton(well you have to cross water to get there)So here goes ,oh and by the way my kids have just booked for a week in egypt next easter and have left an open spot available in case I decide to go with them &&&& !!!

Got back from Tenerife in May.Next one is Fuengirola,September.
One tip on Alcudia,there's plenty fresh(non-salt) lakes, ponds, waterways etc. around,so if you go in the "Mozzie season",take enough insect repellant

I can't believe busy bee didnt like benidorm but I guess its where u stay. I love benidorm, esp the new town. Not so keen on Poniente end tho, but I could easily live anywhere in benidorm or near to if I only could afford it.still each to own taste I suppose.

Just been to Bulgaria, weather was great, i don't like it too hot and it cools down at night there lovely country, down sides are lots of Germans there, i can put up with that but food seems to be more catered for them than us. Been to Benidorm 6 times had our honeymoon there, don't know where busy bee stayed but we've been in 5 different hotels over the last 10 years and never really had a complaint. Its the best place we've been but not to everyones taste i suppose.

Me and my hubby are coming to Wigan for our holidays end of November.We obviously don't come for the weather.It's mainly family and good old English food,humour and just love to be there.We live in USA and still love it after 35 years,but can't help missing everything(almost) you're brought up with.You really can get tired of hot weather - especially this year.Wigan rules!!!
