Anyone making plans for their next holidays? Or anyone still holding out on one already booked?

We were due to go to Lanzarote for 2 weeks at end June/start July but that's fucked. Most likely just transfer the flights/accommodation to next year. But if things get back to relative "normal", we may look at going away around the Halloween break for a week or so.

Probably a quick trip to Florida for a 4 day weekend. Then a proper 2-3 weeks surfing in Panama or Costa Rica.

Going to sound stupid because it's only a train ride there, and I lived in the place for a year - London. I fucking wish I could afford to live in London, I would. Anyone know of any jobs going?

Currently looking at places in Majorca for me and my daughter in October. Be nice to lay by the pool with a few bevvies while she enjoys a swim.

You really do miss the simple things.

Planning on spending 3/4 days in London seeing the sights with the family, take in a show or two. So far not even looked into it proper, no real point, but late August first week of September is my hopeful date right now.

Time of your life, kid. I was spoilt living there, you take everything for granted. It's only when you go back you realise how much you miss the place. Plan your excursions carefully, you'll have a blast.

It'll be museums and free stuff away from anything too tacky. If the weather is decent enough you can do plenty of walking to sights to take everything in, keeps the price down too.

Shameless bump. Fuck it.

We've booked for last week June first week July. The holiday we were supposed to go on 6 months ago, to Lanzarote. It'd be just grand if it happens this year. Just grand.

Ever the optimist I am though, I get the feeling this holiday may not go ahead either!
