Has the credit crunch and lousy exchange rate ruined your holiday plans this year or are you off to somewhere tropical and babe infested.

If so where????

The same as the past years.

A trip to Spain - and later a trip to Dubai.

Hopefully the dollar tanks soon.

We went there for a couple of days a couple of weeks back, mid-week when it was cheap.

It was our (belated) wedding anniversary.

Actually, it was GREAT! :yay: We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Just over a week in Russia at the beginning of the year. A week in the Swiss Alps during February. A week in Crete in october. I'll probably take the whole of october off any way.

Hitch Hiking - wonderful.

Not so practical now as people generally don't trust each other (probably with good reason).

When I was about 15, a mate and I hitch hiked from Cardiff to Edinburgh during the summer holidays. It took absolutely ages and we were propositioned by pervy lorry drivers.

We got the train back!

Had a week skiing in Austria. I am taking 2 weeks at home in August and 2 weeks in the Dominican Republic at Xmas so yes, I have had to cut back on expensive holidays this year.

You good looking blighter

I had to hitch hike due to lack of funds throughout my 10 years at uni. Most of the time it was a really good way to travel.

I am always up for picking up hitchers (when in my car) as a way of paying back the universe, but one never sees them now.

Warm Diving sounds good. Went to Poor Knights Island off the Bay of Islands in NZ in January. 13mm wet suites and big swells, not good.
