Re: Summer Holiday 2018

Not quite summer but have booked flights to Crete for October half term

Any recommendations from anyone?  Areas to stay etc  prefer something more rustic and less touristy with a villa being preferred

Cheers

Re: Summer Holiday 2018

Anywhere interesting in Portugal not on the Algarve. Not that I have anything against that. Inland or somewhere round Porto. Only criteria is near water (preferably rivers of lakes) and restaurants.

Only just seen this Placid - sorry

i went here about 7 years ago with the Mrs and the then baby,  was lovely and much better than on some of these pics

It's not mega for lakes but it's not too far from rivers and the road to Coimbra is a lovely trip

It's quite close to the coast too so might be OK

We flew into Lisbon and hired a car - pretty straightforward if you're used to that sort of thing (which you are)

We once stayed in Estoril. It had water , restaurants and a quick train trip to Lisbon which was fuckin excellent.

Re: Summer Holiday 2018

Booked a week in Duqessa, and hour west of Malaga.  Will be my fourth time.  Planning a day in Cadiz which looks fucking ace.

I'd love a day trip to Tangier but I can't help but think it will be a really really long day.

Any done Tarifa  - Tangier?

Aim Low and miss...

Re: Summer Holiday 2018

Once did the trip from Cadiz to Ceuta back in the mid 80s
Travelled all round Morocco and found it fascinating
Mind you got the worse case of the trots I've ever had in Marrakech

Had ambitions of a moroccan odyssey, planned to go to mauritania on the train & buses, but overall not a particularly nice place, heavy atmosphere, spent it drinking Casablanca beer round the pool with beautiful camp french men and after we had had our fill of dates and lamb tangines, decided to go back to Spain.

If I've not shagged a Scandinavian by sunrise tomorrow I'll know my mojo is failing. I shaved my bowlaks and dabbed a bit of creed milliseme imperial behind my ears and to all intents and purposes am irresistible to women of a certain age.

What is the difference between pop and rock n' roll? You might get fucked.

I'm keen but I don't think a day trip will do it justice.

Re: Summer Holiday 2018

i lived near the ferry crossings to Morocco for 8 years never fancied it.

All of the advice from everyone who went was get the fuck out of the port town at the first opportunity. Apparently beyond the port it can be worth a visit, the port towns are shit holes.
