We are planning our holiday for 2013 and are after some alternative suggestions for destinations; two adults and two mobile kids under 10. We are not really beach bums, as we get bored quickly, although a day or two relaxing is fine; none of us enjoy 'baking'. Budget wise, we dont want to be paying for it for years to come...but are happy to pay for right thing......we are more keen on self catering rather than all inclusive deals and would defo prefer european destinations to save on flight/travel times. Any ideas for fun filled activity based holiday with some culture thrown in?? The exception to all I have said above is a UK departure cruise, but this is not cheap!!
