Favourite holidays ? by johnnythemonkey on 2 November 2010 2:27am
My first trip to Greece, for so many reasons.

Paris last year, cos the price of booze kept me sober. :)

Presume you mean as an adult? As a teenager I loved Great Yarmouth, Norfolk - the wonderful sandy beaches and sand dunes during the day, shows at night, arcades, fish 'n' chips, rock - brill. I feel very nostalgic about it but had never gone back since I was 17, until last year, when we were staying in Cromer. I couldn't get the same 'feeling' back, if you know what I mean.

Of course - re adult holidays - you'll expect me to say one of our trips to Turkey but I think I will have to say our month-long trip to Kathmandu, India, Maldives and Dubai.

Except for the latter two places, it was very tiring (only staying a night or (luxury!) 2 nights in one place and seeing at least a million temples), but it was great all the same.

Any time that I don't have to make a bed, clean or cook, that's the best holiday ever!

Turks and Caicos, hands down! Great holiday.

The weekend breaks we take to Aberdeen occasionally are great value for money. Corfu, Cyprus and Malta gave us great holidays in the past.
