    Default Where will you be planning to holiday in 2010

    For me and my wife we will head to Greece for our summer vacation,not sure where at the moment as we have done a lot of travelling round many islands,we were in Corfu this year and were not at all impressed with the place,when i booked it showed the hotel on the beach,when we arrived nearly 5 hours late due to thomas cook not booking families in other hotels we found our so called beach hotel situated in an alley 5 minutes walk away,so you can imagine the rest of the story, it just got worse and worse.
    Any of you have any good reccommendations for hotels in Greece, i would love to hear them please.

    Our favourite Greek island is Santorini, closely followed by Skiathos. Parga on the mainland scores highly as well.

    This year we're going to Florida and no we won't be doing any themeparks except possibly the space centre.

    We're off down the Keys and through the Everglades and anywhere in Forida that doesn't have families with kids (It's still bah humbug time).

    Talking of bugs, do keep covered in the everglades, we had short sleeves & were bitten to bits by mossies, had to make a dash for the car in the end

    Never did make it to the end of the Keys, seemed to be like driving over one long bridge for ever & ever. Liked the wet T shirt bits though [back to pervs galore?]

    Mrs B is getting made redundant so it all depends on when and how much her cheque will be. Could be Bognor or a World Tour depending on the outcome. With the being in a bit of a 2 & 8, mainstream Europe & USA is becoming a bit pricey but we have been sniffing around ideas of Iceland (about as cheap as it will ever get) or the Balkans.

    We did Florida a few years back and made a point of spending as little time in Orlando as possible. We just hired a car at the airport and set off in a Thelma & Louise meets Easy Rider kind of way. The Everglades are fantastic but watch out for the crocs - they turn up in the most unlikely places. It dries up for part of the year and I can't help feel that a dry Everglades is lacking something so I hope you're going during the wet period. We made it all the way down to Key West - you can't beat a fantastic sunset followed by a few beers in the Green Parrott. Make sure you watch the Schwarzeneggar movie True Lies and Bogart's Key Largo before you go! Kennedy Space Centre is also a must - we were lucky enough to catch a night time Shuttle launch, an experience that I will never forget. I would love to go back and I'm extremely envious!
