I'm really under-travelled. I've never been outside of Europe.
I've done most of the Greek Islands.
I've done Spanish Islands - Majorca, Tenerife, Gran Canaria and mainland Spain.
I've been to Paris and DLP.
I've been to Belfast and Dublin.
I've done UK cities, London, Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh, Aberdeen.
I've done UK breaks.

I've probably been abroad to more places than i've travelled to in the UK.
We've holiday'd in Mainland Spain, Malta, Rhodes, turkey, Orlando, Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, DLP, Bruge, Ostend,
In the UK the places we've been to most are South Wales, Arbroath which is a fishing town on the east coast of scotland, a couple of days in London, Warwick, Lake District.
If i ever win the lottery, i've got a list as long as my arm of places i want to go to.

When I was a baby my parents lived in Zambia so I went back 'home' when I was six weeks old (my mum came to have me in London due to passport issues). When they left Zambia they toured for six weeks so I went everywhere.
Sadly I remember none of it!!!

I've been quite a few places, although some have been with work where I don't often get to see much other than an office, airport and hotel.
Holidays - Margarita (part of Venezuela), Sri Lanka, Maldives, Orlando, Portugal (Algarve), Spain, Ibiza, Tenerife, Turkey, Tunisia, Rhodes, France (Paris a couple of times, plus south west coast), Prague, Amsterdam, Rome.
Work - Canada (Toronto), USA (Orlando and Chicago), Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Paris, Lisbon, Ireland (Dublin and Ballina), Milan.
I've been to most of the big UK cities on breaks, and also a lot of the coast, especially when I was younger, often Wales or Devon area.

Not really, kids have played part of that. Mexico & Cuba are furthest I've been, then Europe mainly. Never been further north than York or Dublin.

Snow White - Im not saying anything bad about Newcastle - Im saying Geordie Shore has highlighted the place to me and makes me want to go for shopping / drinks etc.
Otherwise it probably wouldnt have been on my radar!
08/03/2013 at 15:40
Ha ha, I was only joking with you. Its a good night out.
08/03/2013 at 15:52

OH has been on stag do's and loved it.

Erm, just bit. 16 years as cabin crew is going to do that for you
I really couldn't list all the places I have been just to visit / on holiday. I spent a large proportion of my childhood in the Caribbean, several different islands, and then lived in the USA (New Mexico) for a year followed by travelling around for 3 mths, and then lived in Amsterdam for a year as well.
I have never been to Australia, desperately want to spend some time travelling in India too but that one isn't really child friendly so need to wait until Zoe (well and now Noodles) are both a bit older. Our next "off the beaten track" holiday we want to do is a safari, we had always planned to take Zoe when she was around 8 yrs old but now will have to wait for Noodles to be a suitable age so probably looking at 7 & 11 ish.
The bizarre thing is that I really haven't done much of Europe at all. I have always wanted to take advantage of the staff perks to go long haul in the view that at some point I won't be flying any more and will do the short haul stuff then. The bizarre thing is that it is cheaper for us to have a week in Florida than it is to have a week in Cornwall.
I live for travel though. It's why i do the job I do. I can't wait until Zoe is a bit older and will (hopefully) want to start exploring the world.

Belle, have you really never been further north than York? That's SO going to have to change! Xx
08/03/2013 at 15:56
