    Holiday Withdrawal Symptoms......Tell me where you're going? 20th Apr 15 at 9:03 PM
    My next big holiday is in December according to countdown app, I have 242 days-23 hours- 2min to go

    The only exciting thing I have coming up is a bank holiday weekend trip to Cornwall to learn how to surf! That's 130 days-15 hours - 2 min away!

    2016 looks promising though as I have spaced them out nicely throughout the year.
    1. Cruise March - 339 Days-0 Hours-0Min
    2. USA 35 day Trip August - 465 Days - 3 Hours - 0 Min

    Everyone else seems to be forever on holiday!?!?!

    Where are you off to next, have you DIY (which is the fun part)?

    Despite not having completed the planning for my India trip in November I've booked a fortnight off in February and purchased a guidebook for Cuba. Sadly I'm only temping at the moment so can't commit to more than a fortnight off work. My current contract ends in January but it'll probably be extended until the summer.
    I got a letter from the government the other day. I opened it and read it. It said they were suckers.

    We're going to the UK for two weeks at the end of September I've worked it out that if we buy 20 packs of ibuprofen and / or paracetemol to bring back with us, the price difference between the UK and Switzerland will more than covers the cost of our flights! Seeing as we'll also be stocking up on clothes, hiking boots, etc, this little trip will save us an absolute fortune.

    Next trip in October is to New York for 5 nights (first time!) then a week in Turks and Caicos.

    Still need to research best way to visit the attractions in NY - have only booked Statue of Liberty and a Broadway musical, School of Rock, so far. Hoping to also visit Central Park, Top of the Rock, Grand Central Station, American Museum of Natural History, 9/11 memorial, go shopping on 5th Avenue, maybe the Intrepid museum..... And whatever else will help us get a feel for the place?

    My India trip is coming along nicely but it does often take ages for Indians to reply to emails so I've still one hotel to book.

    So far I've booked:

    Astoria Hotel, Kolkata (one night)
    Flight Kolkata - Bagdogra
    Bellevue Hotel, Darjeeling (3 nights)
    One day trek booked:
    Elgin Silver Oaks, Kalimpong (2 nights)
    Gantok (hotel unbooked) (3 nights)
    Helicopter back to Bagdogra (emailed and awaiting information) Can book a jeep if required but like the idea of the helicopter.
    Flight Bagdogra - Kolkata booked.
    Three nights in Kolkata to be booked upon arrival.
    I got a letter from the government the other day. I opened it and read it. It said they were suckers.

    The contract I was working on is finishing earlier than planned so I suddenly found myself with time for an unexpected week in Lanzarote at the end of the month for some much needed sunshine.

    Just a shame that the exchange rate is so lousy at the moment.

    Malta for us a week on Saturday, for 4 weeks B&B at the Santana Hotel in Bugibba. Paid up front in March. So avoided the temporary dip with £sterling.

    Came back from Nicaragua at the end of May with a cash budget underspend of US$900, and have €uro 150 left over from our Malta trip in February.

    Thailand and Vietnam plans for February are almost complete, so I must update the thread I started soon. Interesting times to come over the next few months in Thailand with the passing of the King.

    Yup. I'm usually in Thailand at this time if year but I'm rather pleased that I'm not there now given current events. Hopefully things will have returned to normal (if anything in Thailand is ever "normal") by next year as they won't want to lose out on the tourist market.

    Less than two weeks till a villa in El Gouna Egypt. Counting down the days and looking forward to feeling the hot Sun on my face once again.

    Hope no naughty terrorists spoil this years trip and the airport staff have finally got over playing candy crush.

    Love this thread. Haven't been anywhere since May. Only day I've had is a dentist appointment, so I'm ready for it.

    6 weeks to go until I fly to San Francisco. I will then be going onto LA and then Las Vegas. I will then fly to New York and come home and it'll soon be Christmas.

    Never been before so quite looking forward to it, and will be interesting to see what the weather will be like in the various destinations.
