Holidays


#61

Mmm…I think I will save the Euros until we go to France in September and just withdraw dollars over there, we are all inclusive anyway so shouldn’t need too many :stuck_out_tongue:


#62

In June we will be going here…

Here…

Here…

Here…

and a few other places.


#63

I’m coming with you.


#64

Family coming over from Oz, so we are showing them all of our favourite places in Calabria. We were thinking about a side trip to Matera but we didn’t have enough time.


#65

Isle of sheppey?


#66

I’m sure I’ll get on with them!

We’re going to matera next year.


#67

I’m sure you would. They’re great fun.

It’s beautiful. You’ll love it.


#68

we are off to Barcelona for 4 days of eating and drinking in our favourite places on Thursday- will be about our 20th visit.


#69

The obvious assumption but look closely. You’ll never find beaches so rammed with Australians at Sheerness & the architecture at Oz’s destination is nowhere near as interesting.

My guess is he’s heading for the North East.


#70

I love hidden beaches like that,Joe public probably doesn’t know it even exists


#71

It seems like I will be going to Slovenia fo a bit in the summer.


#72

Is matera worth a week?


#73

Certainly 3 - 5 days.


#74

When we went (about 6 years ago), we found the accommodation choice was limited and we were surprised at the lack of choice of restaurants and bars over the 4 days we were there. Since then there has been a lot of development and the choice now is much better.

We still loved it and the area around it though.


#75

We won’t have transport, is it easy to get around?
Thinking we might need to do a few days away from the town.


#76

The old town is very compact and walking it is easy. It would be worth considering hiring a car and getting out into the mountains and gorges. I’m sure there are tours but I have no knowledge of them as we always drive everywhere in Italy unless we do a city break.


#77

Thanks, some more planning needed I think.


#78

A lot more choice these days…


#79

We’re unlikely to hire a car as I don’t drive.
Was thinking of a week in matera but it seems that may be a bit much, will look at other places and maybe do a split week.

Bike with panniers ?
