Will go to Holland for one week in April time , then a trip to Ireland later in the year.
We have got a new rescue dog so do not want to leave him for too long, he will stay with our Son & Grandsons , just could not put him into kennels.

We have a week in Devon at Easter and then the same at the end of August - that will be it for us this year I think, new house has serious implications on our budgets! I really really hope that we get some decent sunshine this year though, last summer was so cold and wet.

We are not going away again this year.

Downside of buying an old house, to much work to do & not enough money.

Oman

I lived there for three years, Dolly, back in the 80's. I know it's changed a lot since then and is much more geared up for tourists now; there are some lovely hotels. Friends who went there last year and stayed at the Bustan Palace said how very expensive it is for drinks, etc.

Not been on a proper holiday in over 20 years :) This is partly because we moved to the only place I ever really wanted to go - ie Ireland, and partly because, with the 2 dogs and 3 cats, it would cost us more to put them in kennels than it would to go away!

The last time my husband and I managed to get away together was in 2002 when we came back to the UK for 10 days to get married (it was kind of essential that we were both there for that one!), but since then our only breaks have been to come back individually to visit and/or care for, aging parents.

So here I sit in not-so-sunny Brighton, on 'holiday' until Feb :) Maybe we'll get a proper sunny break one day, but for now I'm quite content with the Irish summer - it's my favourite day of the year!

A Cruise

We are going on a cruise in April to Portugal, South Spain and Morocco. We did a similar one last October and thoroughly enjoyed it. And if finances allow, then I`d like to return to New York in October.

Oman


" We are looking at Oman....anyone been? "

Hi Dolores, we made a day trip from Dubai into Oman, liked it enormously. We went to an oasis and it was not like anything I had imagined, green and lush and an enormous village. Not quite like a few tents and half a dozen palm trees I had thought.
