Thoughts drift to warmer climes and the holiday ads on tv don't discourage them. Anyone got anything interesting lined up for 2018?

I've gone and got quick off the mark with some excellent flight prices via Easyjet and Jet2, so I am ahead of myself for the first time in years - and at superb prices.

Off to Valencia in Feb for 3 days, £20 return on the new route from Edinburgh. Can't turn yer nose up at that.

Croatia in the summer with the family thanks to Easyjet doing a silly flight deal from Newcastle. Game of Thrones enthusiast No 2 Son already eyeing up tours related to that. No 1 Son and his gf going to some dance music festival in Split while we're there. The last time I was in Croatia it was Yugoslavia and Joe Tortolano's auntie May was in the room next to us. She was a character. Will be interesting to see how it has changed. It still had that Eastern European beach resort feel in those days.

Hoping to do a coach tour in the southern states of the USA around about September....nothing booked yet but that's the plan.
Didn't go anywhere this year apart from a week-end city break in Liverpool in early September which was great.

I loved Croatia this year, found a relatively quiet spot and found it cheap and friendly enough, would go back.

Next year going to Portugal and Ireland with the family, going to cycle the Hebridean Way with tricky and Hibadelic and a couple of others, and hopefully a Euro trip with Hibs.

Not so much next year but popping in to see [MENTION=409]southfieldhibby[/MENTION] to get my next cruise booked.

Time in Durban drinks with a pal and safari land and sea. On the boat to the Seychelles through pirate seas to Jordan where the only regret of my life will be dismissed. I will go to Petra! Through the other great canal*, the Suez, and a few stops in the Med jumping ship in Venice again.

Next year will be a few fag runs and a couple of beach holidays with Jackie!


* Already done the Caledonian .... and the Panama!

Amsterdam for a long weekend in February with mates from school. Will certainly be a different kind of trip from the last few I've been on to there! Might actually see some of the city! :giggle:

Ive booked a villa in a small town outside Split that was used as a GoT set. It appears well serviced with amenities but off the tourist trail. Eldest is going to hop on the train to Italy and spend a week in the lakes after a week with us in Croatia.

Im hoping for another Euro trip too. Hopefully not a third consecutive trip to Copenhagen though...much as I enjoyed both previous ones.

Also squeezing in a city break in Budapest at Easter courtesy of Jet2. Not been there since 1999 so it will have changed a wee bit too.

Game of Thrones has really done wonders for the tourist economy of Croatia, the downside is Dubrovnik has become almost avoidable. Combined with the 4/5 cruise liners docking everyday, it's just far too busy. Split/Istria far more pleasant, as well as the islands. Pondered a day trip on the hydrofoil to Venice for the day, but that's also ruined by exactly that- too many boats/ships/day trippers.
Train round sounds far more pleasant. I'm sure you know the lakes well, but I recommend Sirmione to anyone who asks.It's terrific.

Holidays 2018

Are ye going anywhere this year? We are off to Bali and Java for three weeks in June/ July, back just in time for Hibs in Europe.

Had a weekend in York and might have dosh for somewhere later in this year, with Napoli, Paris or Porto being considered?

Cost of long haul travel and Rajoy and his fascist pigs being charge in Spain means no trips to Las Espanyas for me this year, I miss the feeling of warm sun on my fat face and the braw scrannage right enough.

Anyone any plans?

Holidays 2018

6 nights in Tenerife with the wife in May (flying out the Sunday after the season finishes) & then 2 weeks in Florida at the end of September with the wife, her parents and her aunt & uncle.

Hopefully won’t miss any big games while we’re over in Florida but I’ll be taking the laptop armed with an international Hibs TV subscription anyway as my wife & her family are all big Hibbies too which will save any arguments!
