[NSC] Where shall I go on holiday this year?

Albion and Premier League latest from Sky Sports

Just me and Mrs H.

Anytime from the start of July until the middle of September.

From unknown cities to the open country - we don't care.

Any ideas?

Tried Funchal in Madeira in September a few years back. Expected it to be fairly dull (somebody else booked it) but it was actually pretty decent. Banana plantations in the middle of town, a Ronaldo museum the size of an aircraft hangar, cable-cars, that thing where you slide down the streets in a basket, fantastic markets full of eighteen different kinds of mango and evil-looking fish, some very decent craft beers. Oh, and port. And cake. Supposed to be some decent hiking in the north of the island. Suffers a little bit from an influx of cruise ships in the earlier part of the day, but the hordes are easily avoidable. Really enjoyed it

I think you need to let us know what type of holiday you are after. Partying through the day and night - Ibiza. Walking in the burning mid day sun - Camino Santiago :smile:

We've got two kids in tow so it's a first time visit for to Centre Parcs for us. I've been warned to get a loan for the extras but kids will love the wooden lodge, wildlife and activities.

A few ideas:

Channel Islands. Guernsey is a step back in time; Sark several steps.
A bus trip up the length of Norway. See the northern lights and assorted Russian spies.
Camping at Kandersteg in the Bernese Oberland. Proper hiking, climbing, mountain biking, all the scenery you could imagine, plus eagles flying the peaks far above you. If you are feeling brave, put the car on the train through the mountains to the Rhone valley. Just close the windows first.
Fancy a city? Try Lisbon. Trams, custard tarts, pickpockets and Segway tours.
If you just want hot sun and world class food, plus a bit of catholicism, and a lot of history, then Malta might fit the bill. Choose your location carefully though.
Do you like to wander through a medieval town? Colmar, Alsace or Dinan, Brittany. Both are quite beautiful.
