    and went along a canal/river walk thing and found some great places to eat :)

    I've got two weeks booked at the beginning of October. My sister is getting married (half way up a mountain near Fresno in California) so I'm going to fly to New York for a few days and then onto San Francisco for a few more before heading up the mountain for the wedding.

    Have no idea at all what to expect, could be great, could be a disaster!!

    We're off to Mykonos for a week in four weeks time. Am really looking forward to a trip to Delos a nearby island that is apparently one of the most important archeological sites in Greece. Haven't been away since May lasy year so we're ready for a holiday.

    I went to Ibiza last year for a week, wish I was going again!!! Stayed in San Antonio bay had an awesome time!! Not sure whats happening over there this year but can definitely recommend Retro @ Eden on Saturday nights, Judgement Sundays at Eden (on sunday nights) we went to Carl Cox at Space which was amazing!!! Ohh i'm soooo jealous haha also make sure you wander up and down the beach during the day as there were loads of people giving out discount wristbands for the clubs errrr and also an amazing little bar at the bottom of the West End (I think its called ground zero) and also Bar Amsterdam for some cheap drinks offers and to doodle on their walls!!!!

    Have an awesome time!!!!

    Gotta wait til February for my hols :(

    I personally love camping, but there is no way you can put someone with OCD in a tent or caravan, so unfortunately its not really an option at the moment.

    So instead we now blow a lot of money on a holiday of a week, which could as well have been a three week camping trip and have spare money. Still, the holiday was really nice and I had some extra holiday spare to visit friends now for a long weekend, so it was worth it.

    I went to Vegas,LA and Hawaii in March as a late birthday present. It was fantastic. However, an "incident" occurred on the flight returning home and we were offered some compensation so I have booked flights to Miami this October for a bit of last minute sunshine!

    Monsoon- Hopefully I will have a positive trip report for you. It will still be hurricane season as we're there but fingers crossed nothing major will occur! I dont have much luck with weather abroad,always a drama.

    Ive heard about this event that is held on every Saturday of the summer called "Project Zoo" ... The DJs and Mcs perform in a derelict zoo, a mile or so out of San antonio... We'll have to take the party bus to get there so cant wait for that.
    I did actually go 2 years ago and checked out Eden and Es paradis...Theres a great club in the middle of the shops called "Soul city"...that was really good for RnB.
    I never got to go to Space last time so thats a must this time....
    Did you get to see the Ibiza rocks ?

    we have several places we would like to go but cannot find the time for them!

    - Boston - my friends moved back there last christmas and since then we havent seen them. They keep saying we have to go and visit
    - Sweden - my husband's brother's family have moved into sweden for 18 months and they keep asking us to go and visit
    - Paris - have friends that have been living there for 3 years now and we havent gone to visit yet and they might move to Spain this winter so we have limited time to decide if we are going or not
    - Canada - my husband's cousin lives there and most of her family has now gone to visit but us...would love to go as i have a friend in there too!
    - Portland - will be going hopefully next year if everything goes well to meet up with some more friends from over the world.
    - Switzerland - I WANT TO GO THERE!!! have friends who just moved house and they want us to be the first guests!
    - Germany - have two lovely girl friends there who live in the most remotely part of Germany and i would love to see them


    Of course most of the above cannot happen cause our holidays keep being used to go to Spain and Ireland to see the family.

    I went to Switzerland this time last year. Spent a long weekend in Geneva to collect some cheap cigars. Its such a beautiful place. There was a slight chill in the air but the sun beamed every day for us. Lake geneva is very inviting.

    We're thinking of going to Ibiza next year, a group of about 6 girls and hiring a villa. Is it worth booking the club tickets off the internet before u go or getting discount wristbands?

    I've just got back from a week in Turkey and went to Thailand in March.
