Devon going next weekend.
Hopefully the Greeks haven't sold the Island by the 28th ... Although if the Greeks had secured as many discounts as Drak they would be fine financially :smiley-laughing002:
Mind and post your holiday snaps this time then :bbpd:
Albufeira, Portugal in about 4 weeks. Love it in Portugal will be the 14th time.
Tenerife 15th Aug, 11 nights all inclusive. Sweet.
Hoops Bar Los Cristianos to see us into the CL
I was there once * hated it mate
Your last pictures didn't look that bad ... and green peace didn't tow you that far out to sea did they
He had 14 chances to hate it.:icon_mrgreen:
You belong in the recent huddle thread.*.:icon_mrgreen:
Secret societies have always made me nervous and, as a rule, I tend not to join them , however its always good to keep abreast of what's going on
"Keep your friends close but your enemies closer"
Wife taking me to Barcelona for 3 nights in August.
Cant wait, no been before. Hopefully get a hold of a ticket for the Malaga game ( unless it gets changed )
Anyone not going to a Spain or Portugal holiday, anywhere going somewhere different?
Was your keyboard drunk last night?:icon_mrgreen:
I went to Albuferia a few years back and also hated it. For some reason I though it was going to be a bit more classy than the usual Spanish resorts. It was probably the worst.
Some of the old Town was ok, but the newer parts were just a concrete jungle. Everything looked temporary and way too many idiots on the go. The food was awful in the new town and the harrasment levels in the old town were too much.
I'm just back from a week in Salou. It was alright, but it was just for my daughter so we could go do the theme park and water parks.
They are good for a break, but I couldn't do this every year.
A holiday is supposed to be relaxing, but people get all wound up fighting over sunbeds and the likes.
Why does a buffet cause so many people to have to rush about like mad people when all is plenty and free?
Some people just love lying next to the pool for their entire holiday, asking some unknown reps to entertain their kids, then tolerate entertainment at night you'd not even cross the street to go to at home, drinking * quality alcohol and then proclaim it has been a great holiday.
Our food at our hotel was pretty decent this year, but in the past, and also loads if other people find that the food is budget crap all too often.
Entertainment in Salou was all too often bingo or guess that song for a shot in many of the family pubs.
I've never seem so many young ones interested in bingo before!
Watching football means streaming some illegal channel in dreadful quality. I've still no idea what all happened in the game on Wednesday night. I also watched Aberdeen and could just about see what was going on. Then a bunch of girls wanted to see the Big Brother final and had to share internet bandwidth to see that. The buffering was then bad.
Salou was fine for a week, but I'm glad I'm back. Meet the Celtic team leaving Glasgow yesterday when we came back.
I just don't follow why so many people love going to the common resorts to be be treated to a low standard of service, yet they can enjoy it there, but not accept it at home.
There is far more to a holiday than this.
Probably should have mentioned those aren't the hotel
A holiday is usually what you make it.
I have been on some great ones with excellent service, lovely food, &
good entertainment but other people
in the same hotel seem to just like moaning for the sake of it.
I have also been to a couple of shitholes & just made the best of it,
eat, drink out etc:icon_mrgreen:
This isn't aimed at you, just a general observation.
It just made me laugh that out on hols with all them pics you no doubt took and you posted one with highrise flats in it.
