    Aside from the obligatory visit to Dorset (and Madam spending a few weeks there) we're planning a few days away somewhere like the Cotswolds, although nothing firmed up yet.

    Saving up for next year instead - stepbrother is getting married in Greece next July.

    Long weekend in Krakow over the upcoming bank holiday weekend.
    A week in Devon in early August (with a couple of nights away while the kids are spoilt by grandparents)
    Then we've booked a week in Wales in later September in a log cabin.

    Continuing my mission of ticking off at least one new country per year, Poland achieves that for me this year.

    How many have you now done? I'm probably at about the 20 mark, mainly Europe.

    Can't say I've done many myself - only counted countries where I have actually travelled through on terra firma rather than airport stops:

    UK
    Ireland
    France
    Germany
    Belgium
    Netherlands
    Luxembourg
    Switzerland
    Italy
    Czechia
    Spain
    Portugal
    USA
    Mexico
    Zimbabwe (well, Rhodesia!)
    South Africa

    Will add Greece to this next year.

    If you include fuel stops, then added to the list would be Egypt, Kenya and Cabo Verde (thanks to Apartheid!).

    I'm on 18 now with most in Europe, I thought it was more to be honest.
    I'm quite fortunate though, Hungary, Czech Republic, Switzerland and Japan have been ticked off through work and tend to take me to some off the beaten tourist track towns and areas.

    Iceland and Croatia/Bulgaria are in the frame for short breaks/holidays next year I think.
