Hi,
where in the world can I take my kids where I am guaranteed warm sunshine,
none or very little rain, no hurricanes, tornados etc...That doesn't involve a day on a plane?
Am open to suggestions.

Thanks
H :D

    The Canary Islands? We've been to Gran Canaria in December and it was warm.

    We've also been to the dominican republic but it does involve the 'day on the aeroplane' :eek: Not a good experience.

    We're off to Egypt in 3 weeks. Weather looks good. Hotel has lots of facilities for kids and I've heard nothing bu good reports about it :D Oh, and the flight time is 5 hours.

    I've also been to Tunisia in December and the weather was good their too. I went before we had children and I'm not sure my girls would enjoy it.

    We got our deal on Teletext - lots of bargains on there at the moment.
    Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold...But other times it's essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow...

    Tenerife for me,

    cheap flights, cheap accomodation, lots for people to do and see, plenty of cheap bars with great acts on at night.

    Let us know when you want to go, where u want to fly from, how long for, what date you want to go and how ol dyour kids are, and i'll see what i can do for you.

    It's my birthday treat, we are hoping to arrive on the Friday, 11th of November (my birthday) and depart on the Sunday, 20th so 9 nights in total.
    Have to fly from either Heathrow or Gatwick, preference...Heathrow, quicker to get to for us from Wales.

    Just want guaranteed sunshine for my old bones!

    My son is 7 but because my daughter is 2, I need a reasonable flight, max 7 hours. Dubai is fully booked out so that is out of the question. Haven't been nearer to home, by that I mean, Europe. Have always gone long haul eg. Barbados but am trying to find something not so far away that is also child friendly and like I mentioned, very little rain, kids can be a nightmare stuck in a hotel room if it's piddling down with rain.

    Im going to Egypt next Sunday staying here via Peltours

    http://marriott.com/property/propertypage/TCPEG

    With flight meals, transfers, sea view and extra leg room on the plane came to £644 between the two of us, wouldnt be much more to take the nipper with you. The Hotel has got some great reviews.

    I booked through Holiday Experts. I dont know there web address but there phone number is 0870 950 7579, i think this is the direct line for if you prefer not to use the 0870 number 01530 811462.

    Hope this helps
