Re: Holiday Destinations

My favorite places are Costa Rica/Central America, Chile, Australia, Cook Islands, French Polynesia, Fiji, Samoa, Phonapei, Yap, Kosrae, Baja Sur, BC (Canada), Palau, New Zealand, Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, Big Sur (California), Yellowstone, Crystal Springs ( Florida), New England (in early Autumn), South Africa - especially if u like exotic succulents.

These aren't the droids we're looking for, you can go about your business now, move along, move along...

Re: Holiday Destinations

By 'exotic succulents', do you mean a bit of the old Turkish Delight?

It is indeed, however when you are in the Peak District proper you are above 1000ft and there are lots of peaks and hills even higher than that.  You would like it Dermo, some proper early morning brew and smoke moments, the views make you feel high.

Re: Holiday Destinations

My bro had his stag do there. Everyone got wasted and then tried a multitude of adventure sports. The guys running it weren't impressed and sent us packing.

Part of the problem

Re: Holiday Destinations

People who run outdoor pursuits were all bullied at school.  That is the problem with a stag do, you have to base it round doing something when actually you just end up getting wrecked the whole time.

I don't mind you asking at all mate although 'expensive' is a relative word...

At short notice the return flights, from Heathrow (Oman Air - was recommended and 'reads' ok) are just under £800 per person and the accommodation (B&B basis) works out around £70 per person per night.

That seems reasonable enough....reason I asked was because it looked like one of those fancy resorts that are usually 250 a night or something....nice to know, hope its a good trip mate!

Re: Holiday Destinations

17 notes for half a lager though.

Re: Holiday Destinations

Lager might be a bit pricey in these spots smile

I've been to number 7 on that list.  For about 4 minutes.  Didn't get time for a lager...

Re: Holiday Destinations

If you guys make it over to the US. San Fransisco is a fantastic city for a holiday. Also these 2 resorts which are a little beyond my price range look fantastic.
