    Orlando, Florida, with the good lady, daughter, son in law and seven year old grand daughter.
    Hoping to meet up with my brother who lives in Chicago.

    Not sure yet, depends on the money. I maxed out last year on a month in the states.

    Can't do that every year unfortunately :(

    Definitely a city break - maybe Berlin.

    Tend to avoid the high seasons so normally go away May and September. Avoiding spain this year with the euro and that so staying a bit closer to home! In May, going to Alton Towers, then Thorpe Park followed by Blackpool! Thinking about Egypt in September, but the misus fancies Dominican Republic, but i'll be booking and it will be the cheapest one!

    It's very unusual for me - I would have normally had it booked ages ago.

    Tried to book Florida back in Aug 2008, wanting to go in Oct2009 but that got blocked because there was no way my son's school were going to let us take him out of school for a week.

    Since then we have discussed Florida and sunny europe but now that the £ has collapsed we've not booked anything.

    So it might be somewhere in the UK (Cornwall or Scotland) but I do like the sunshine so again haven't booked anything.

    Money isn't that much of a problem for me but at the same time I don't want to get fleeced by the lousy exchange rate when I get out there.

    Interested in any recommendations.

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    I'll be staying at home again this year - have done for the past 11 years since moving to Cornwall.

    Last summer wasn't that good, so the odds are we'll have good weather this year.
