      I'm off to California for 3 weeks with my gf to visit some of her family on Monday! CANNOT wait. (doing as much grinding as i can until then haha)

      We jut booked the flights as we'll most likely be staying with her family for most of it, but we have booked some motels, and also a couple nights in Yosemite National Park in a already-made tent. And there are bears in the woods haha! gonna be class

      Aside from that, me and 5 of my best mates are heading to Vegas in novmeber while the final table is being played. Gonna kick ass!!

      we booked that back in January to get a good deal! flights and 7 mights in MGM Signiture Suite for under £1k will do nicely!!

      ive got a good few months coming up :s_cool:

      I take the easy way and just bug off to the Canary islands year after year, just can’t go wrong with those, the easy Spanish way of life, the diversified landscapes, the nearly golden beaches, the beautiful women in holiday mood (maybe not quite as appealing to OP), not to mention the food, a splendid nightlife on certain islands, superb hiking opportunities, great opportunities to learn Spanish, either in classes or single lessons, boat trips into the blue sea, diving. Just a great place to have mixture of relaxation and action holidays, and then there is of course the mount Tide on Tenerife, though I must say my favorite island so far is La Isla de la Gomera.
      They are easy to reach if you live in Gibraltar as well.

      i went there on my first 'proper' lads' holiday when I was 18.

      such an epic holiday and a great place. Been a bit rubbish since then with 'sun/sea/sand' holidays and only went to Bulgaria (hugely recommended) last year as generally I prefer holidays where you can get out and do stuff. I get hugely bored by just lying on the beach etc and can't relax unless I'm doing something.

      as for this year, well, here in Gib you kinda live in the place where others go on holiday, so I plan to take a bit of advantage of that. Think my parents will come and visit in August so maybe a little road trip around Andalucia is in order.

      Other than that, I'd like to go to Germany because I haven't been there in a couple of years and the Black Forest is [x] confirmed one of the most beautiful places in the world, although that might wait until October or so.

      On top of that (wait, do I have so many vacation days left? :D ) I'd really love to go visit Riga in the winter time. Went in May (for work) and really really liked it (helped that we went with a hometown girl) and could imagine that it's just literally stunning in the winter time, so well up for that.

      Then next year....Vegas. Bit of a shame that I've been 21 for *ahem* some years now and still haven't been, so I'll have to fix that, especially after Pleno1's epic trip report from this year. Obviously it'd then be my plan to win the world, incl Main Event, obv. gl with that ;)
