    Heres an Idea

    Why not do a little tour around europe, or UK?

    I did it two years ago spending 3 days in london, 2 days in Newcastle a night meeting friends in Leeds and going to a rock night, 2 Days in scotland then finished off with a 3 day mini cruse to Amsterdam.

    Yes there is a lot of travling involved but a little bit of everything and it turned out cheaper than package holiday as we planned the whole route and managed to find some great sites for cheap Train Tickets (Trainline)and the mini cruise came to £66 for two with P&O ferries (and thats with transferes from rotterdam to amsterdam)

    That sounds great!!! we were thinking of going to venice and then catching a train to Milan, I will put my ideas forward to my partner tonight. If it was up to me...I'd be on a hot beach somewhere for 2 weeks!!!

    I vote Rome - if you like Dan Brown's Angels and Demons book you can do the tour around the churches + sights involved in the story!

    I work at a travel agency so I get tempted all the time, however my bf and I just going to london to pretend to be tourists and visit all the touristy places :D
  • sharonsharon Well-Known Registered Posts: 161
    Im planning to do that in a few weeks too!!!Tattoo kitten do you work at Thomas cook in Peterborough?
  • tattookittentattookitten Feels At Home Registered Posts: 46
    No I'm at the Travel Centre in Norwich, if you want I can give you our number and they might be able to find you a better deal than Thomas Cook, we're independent and so use all the tour ops you can think of lol! We do holiday enquires over telephone and via email all the time.

    Let me know! hehe! wow what a sales person I am! :D

    We did the London touristy thing back in March for the 1st time, we had a fantastic time. We stayed in a Travelodge at Moorgate for £19 per room, and it had a restaurant downstairs, so we could buy dinner and breakfast too!.
    We did the London Eye (well worth a visit), the Science museum (be prepared to spend hours in there) and then a walk around St James Park and up round Buck Palace (even the hubbie was impressed with that!)
    We did that over 2 days, we would all ahve loved to stay longer, so going back up in July

    Good luck holiday hunting!

    I love holidays.....

    I haven't been abroad on holiday for years so decided to treat myself and family to a week in Cyprus in August. Now I have found out that we shall be melting in the heat, but plan to live in the pool or on the beach and dip in and out of the sea all day. Live it up a bit at night, strolling around Paphos harbour, nice meal, find a bit of greek/cypriot dancing <sigh>:thumbup1:

    THEN - worse of all, discovered that the day I go is the day the results get sent out. So here's the choice, I either log on while away to find out my results and run the risk of having a very disappointed holiday or wait until we get back and find out a week after everyone else.:scared:

    :confused1:

    For a holiday abroad I would recommend Cyprus and Egypt - Beautiful places and so much to do... Egypt is cheaper than Cyprus but both are worth a visit for sure and you can even do an overnight cruise between the two!!!

    If in London I would recommend Crnival this weekend and there will be lots of carnival parties happening everywhere in London due to this... Worth a visit for sure :)
