Ok so we have about 5 to 7 days to take a break - maybe June maybe Sept, doesnt really matter which month we go to be honest. Budget will be about £500 per head - leaving Belfast - where would you go? Give me a few ideas!

No particular desires for the trip - lm just asking you guys to throw a few ideas out there for me? Distance or travel isnt an issue for us - but we are only talking about a week - would like sunny weather!

Cheers

Heather

Barcelona, Seville, Lisbon, Porto? Any where in Europe will be full of sunshine in summer (think so!) Check out www.bugbog.com/festivals/european_festivals.html
if you want to combine your trip to any festivals of Europe.

Thanks for the suggestions!

But lve been to these parts of Europe before - lm looking perhaps for something a bit different (lm from Ireland) maybe not necessarily a European destination? Ive done Barcelona and Portugal in the past also so l am looking for somewhere we havent necessarily been to!

Azores Islands maybe? Renting a car for several days, taking a whalewatching tour, enjoying some UNESCO world heritage towns?

Napoli and the Amalfi coast?

Tunis and surroundings, like Carthago?

Sicily, sun and driving around the island. I figure you are not the one week beach only type?

Flying to Sofia or Plovdiv and visiting the mountains and some old town in Bulgaria?

Dubrovnik, Split and a trip to Bosnia or Montenegro?

Marrakesh and a side trip to the desert or coastal towns like Essaouira?

Jordan is beautiful as well....

Gambia?

Quoting Gelli

Gambia?

I would think that she needs a budget airline. a return ticket to this destination will probably cost almost as much as her budget.

LOL, that's what I thought as well. Don't know if you booked already, but Oasis Hongkong Airlines has return tickets for 270 pounds from London Gatwick. Might even be cheaper, including cheap tickets belfast to london. Have fun!
