    Cuba for 2 weeks. 4 days in Havanna and then Guardalavaca for 10 days. Bit special this one as it is the honeymoon, get married on the 4th of August and then off on hols on the 6th.

    Shouldn't miss a home game hopefully if we start with an away game due to pitch relaying!

    I'm going to Orlando in early July. Taking my little sister to Disney and all that jazz. Then I'm heading back to the UK for a couple of weeks to attend a wedding. Might try and squeeze in a couple of days by the coast when I'm back.

    Working through the summer at the Olympics... Want to go do a road trip in the USA for a couple of months straight after. If I don't find a job straight away in Liverpool that is.

    South America hopefully! Not sure when exactly. I want to do TEFL (teach English as a foreign language) for a year or so after uni, so not sure where that may take me.

    I love Devon, I used to go a lot as a kid and I try and get back when I can every now and then. I’ve block booked a few meetings down there for the end of April so I can have a night or two down there. Salcombe is where we used to go as kids and despite being overrun with pompous London pr!cks now it is still a great little village to vist and have a stroll around, as is Hope Cove. The Hope and Anchor pub always has some decent beer on the go.

    I’ve recently been told about another place in Devon worth a visit, a village called Clovelly. It is a privately owned village that you have to pay a couple of quid to get into but I’m quite intrigued by it so I am planning on having a look around when I’m next down that way. http://www.clovelly.co.uk/

    Going to Florida in June to my apartment for a couple of weeks. if anyone is interested in renting it please let me know. It is in Kissimmee 100 yards off the main 192 road where there are some restaurants and three miles from some of the Disney parks and golf courses. Two bedrooms two bathrooms and can sleep up to six. The gated site had a Gym and Swimming Pool :cool:

    Nothing booked yet but I'm under strict instructions from "her indoors" that this year will be a "hot" holiday. After the last few years in the UK we will be venturing South. No idea where or when though.

    If you like a bit of Devon, I can recommend a stay at Polkerris beach in Cornwall, good for some water sports, quiet, has beach, pub, restuarant and a quay to jump off.

    Stayed there last year

    Clovelly is a bunch of hillbillies mate. Used to live in Woolacombe just down the road and played football against that lot. It's in the middle of nowhere and they all have 3 eyes.

    Thanks for the tip off! Being a privately owned village it always runs the risk of being full of self important people, and weirdos!

    Drove home from the very tip of Cornwall 2 years ago with a fully loaded car and 3 kids in the back when someone decided to jump off the M5 bridge not long before I got to Devon. It hurts even thinking back to it.

    If you're heading to Devon, Stay at The Castle Hotel in Woolacombe. It's owned by Eustace's old man. Well it was. I think he may have died not long ago. He was a nice chap when I lived there.

    My daughter is playing for GB in a lacrosse tournament in Rockland, New York so all are going to cheer from the sidelines followed by a week in Orlando and a few nights in Miami. Anybody going to Florida, ensure that you book for Discovery Cove where you can swim with the dolphins - pricey but the best park in Orlando

    I've been to Bude for a few days once a year year, every year of my life so far. My grandad and mum and aunt have been for about 40 years now every year. Used to stay at a place called The Maer Lodge Hotel, knew the family really well. A few years ago they sold up and built a load of new houses there (for an insane profit). Now we stay at the Bude Haven hotel up the road, a few years ago the then owners (nice family) sold to an American family who are also lovely, if a little shy for hoteliers haha. Recommend staying with them though, they're really friendly once you get to know them. We always go at the end of July, my grandad's birthday. Used to be timed perfect, straight after the summer term at school. Because it's our family, Aunts and Uncles, family friends (most of whom we've met over the years in the summer), we book up the entire hotel for the few days we're all there and it's great fun.

    Party at Simbo's?

    Does Reading fest count as a holiday?

    Just buy your own. You can pick something up in the 2 bedroom range for about £30k in Kissimee or Davenport, in a nice community with reasonable (though not first rate) facilities.

    To put that in perspective, that's like 288 away trips to Leeds, including food and travel.
