Re: Poles' foreign holiday destinations

Hans
My advice: rent a house/flat
I went to Dorset/Wiltshire last year and compiled a thick file of things to do and see. Every morning we watched the weather forecast and decided on the activities based on where it was dry. We got rained on only one day - and that was when it rained everywhere!

Re: Poles' foreign holiday destinations

We have our own house there

The South-west of England is my third home!

Re: Poles' foreign holiday destinations

I'd like to visit egypt and turkey one day. I would not say they are the typical tourist traps. They are both countries with a wealth of history and culture. Tunisia isn't particularly appealing, because Ive heard from people who have been that it's quite grotty. But I think many countries have a great deal to offer if you don't head straight for the tourist resorts. Mainland spain for example, e.g. toledo or barcelona etc. are very interesting to visit. I reckon portugal is the one place I really wasn't impressed with as it was very touristy & v ill equipped for travel. I ended up there after interrailing in 87. I distinctly remember the raw sewage pipe going straight in the sea (full of bathers!) but Ive heard it's much improved now they have a proper rail network so you no longer have to get a bus and boat to get across.... I like greece too - again steeped in history and a great atmosphere. Even tenerife has loads to offer if you go outside the main resorts - for example a trek up the beautiful mount teide, lovely fishing villages such as la calleta. You have to remember that there was a reason these countries first drew so many tourists. They have just become a victim of their own success.

Re: Poles' foreign holiday destinations

Hans you scoundrel! You never said you had a place in Dorset.
Do you want to do a swap some time in the future? I could offer you free accommodation in Greece (south coast) - but you would need a hire car.
