Sounds boring but another Belgium trip soon to see the folks and then possibly a week or two in the South of France on a cooking holiday :)

Nice little villa in Franc, good food, great wine and learning how to cook properly as I love playing in the kitchen... Oh forgot nice run out over there in the car as well....

Well the girlfriend and I spent the Christmas and New Year just gone in Florida so that was the main holiday money for this year spent!

Having said that, if I can't afford to go to the states or canada I much prefer to stay in the Uk, North Wales climbing rather than going to some nasty holiday resort in spain to sit on the beach all week :)

I'm off to Anglesea at the end of this month for a week of sea cliff climbing and maybe some watersports!

Going to the florida keys in august for a bit of fishing.

Be careful !!!!! Those marlin run big and and strong down there - don't want your shoulder popping again :o

I'll be in Orlando for a week and then second week in the Keys later this year.

Keep me posted on that one - I'd love to know how you get on. I've always fancied a go down there but found it a bit pricey especially if you charter a boat for yourself - $600 a day for deep sea stuff and that was a few years ago.

And those Tarpon ain't all that small either :unsure:

Booked on a shared charter so $700 for 7 days.Your right tarpon ain't that small and on light tackle can be a right pain to land but good fun.

On previous hols caught blue/black marlin,sailfish/dorado,tuna and various sharks love my fishing and usually go on my hols to the best fishing spots so can have a bit of sun and a bit of fishing.Flying out on the 4th of august so will drop you a pm to let you know how i get on.

Now isn't the best time. It's snowing. They have the opposite seasons to Mud Island.

North Island has cities and normal folk. But also has Rotorua with the bubbling mud and sulphur smell that goes with it. South Island is the place for out and out scenery.

Toyota Club trip to NZ then? Toyota rentals from Avis or Hertz.

carl, meze is a twelve course meal.....but dont worry the courses are only small......one pork chop would be considered a course with no trimings.........there are twelve courses in total everhting from fish, squid, pork, chicken, etc etc and wall washed down with brnady sour.....

phapos is one of the most beautiful areas of cyprus.... once a small fishing port and now it it expanding a little to become a little more tourist like but without spoiling it......to go and eat out is cheap but get away from the tourist area and head in any direction out of town....you will bumb into a taverna no matter which way you go.....have you got transport while you there......if not dont worry car hire is cheap or was last time i went back two years ago.......if you want i really good night out/early morning (got got in a 5am) go to ayia napa.....clubbing capital of the med.......head a day out in lefcara for hand made lace etc........mount olympus for the views........limossol for shopping..........and if you in paphos the tomb of the kings is a must........and the pelican resturant..... shant say owt more about that but bet you wont miss it....have a ball mate,,,,youll love it :lol:
