Just booked flights last night for our Florida Disney trip next April.

4 Adults (My folks are going with us) and Miss Wolfie, Virgin Premium Economy

Flying to Orlando on Saturday 6th April for 2 weeks: £12,000

Fly on Wednesday 3rd instead (taking Miss W out of school for 3 days): £6,500 !!!

In the end, decided to fly to Jacksonville - where my in-laws live: £4,600

Not exactly a bargain still but the price difference is amazing.

Flights to the USA are stupid prices at the moment.

Thoughts now turning to 2019 and what to do.. The missus and I have always loved the sun and can sit in it for 9 hours a day. This was pretty much our holiday routine, roast all day, then out for the evening for good food and wine.

She has now had a couple of moles removed and the sun part is going to have to take a back seat going forward. She still likes to chill in the shade but boredom soon kicks in and she gets restless.

Is it just me or have holiday prices taken a real hike for next year. Looked at a safari, min £3.5k each. Crusing has gone up as well although still probably the best value. 

Also struggling when to go. She wanted a week at the end of May in Kalkan but that's Play Off final week. No chance. Easter you have to travel to get the heat. She's a teacher, so tied on dates.

What's everyone doing next year?

 

 

So that really is you in your profile picture 😅

Booked my flights to New Orleans in Feb. 

Right slap bang in the middle of Mardi Gras. 

Wouldn’t worry about it, planes usually fly at altitude so you shouldn’t hit anyone

Love New Orleans. Had a great few days there.

Yeah I love it. Looking forward to catching up with friends there over a couple of weeks. Helps to not have to pay for a hotel mind, they're expensive as hell in that place.

They certainly are. Fortunately I didn't have to pay either.

Enjoy

Wow, we went first two weeks school holidays to Disney, 6 adults and 4 children cost 6.5k. Was basic economy though with TC.

Off for a city break to Dusseldorf in January. Anyone been? It looks like there is plenty to do (and Altbier to drink)

I said in the Christmas market thread that I was pleasantly surprised with Düsseldorf. Try the Killipitsch drink.
