Travel Forums General Talk HOLIDAY IDEAS NEEDED

1. Posted by maisie43 (First Time Poster 1 posts) 5y Star this if you like it!

Hi everyone

I'm new to the forum and would like some help from all you well travelled forum members. My OH is retiring at the end of the year and I would love to plan a special trip for him. I have no fixed ideas at the moment but would like to concentrate on Europe or the USA. Any suggestions really would be appreciated - thanks

This would be difficult without knowing what you both want out of a holiday. Hot weather, cold weather or don't care? Beaches, sightseeing, doing things? What kind of budget? etc.

Maybe Benidorm? It has a bad reputation solely because of young alcoholics in July and August. It's a great place other times of year and people go back there again and again. I was there for 11 days in December 2009 and had brilliant weather 9 of those days.

There's two good beaches, plenty of eateries (making AI a bit of a waste of time), shops, bars and live entertainment, trips and places to visit. Much of it is easy to walk around.
