our last holiday before kids was 5 weeks in Malaysia and Borneo, we went on 27 December, and spent New Year's Eve in Penang.
we went to kuala lumper, Penang, langkawi, borneo and a 5 day rainforest trek, and back to KL, when we got back to KL because we had stayed in Shangri la hotels all trip they upgraded us to the executive floor, presented us with wine and flowers in reception....and our very own butler (who washed and ironed all our clothes for us going home ), because we were on the executive floor it was 24 hour free food and drink so we would sit in the sky lounge all evening and fill up on booze and snacks then go off out on the ttown.
the rainforest trek was hs part of the holiday, I was very out of place trekking in a boob tube, canvas shoes and teeny shorts
my holiday to magaluf at 17 comes a close second though,
share your best holiday ever

I went to Florida as a teen and did all the big parks which was great. I also really like puerto pollensa in majorca where I've had a few really good holidays. I think the best one however was in good old St Ives! My H and I had been together 6 months so were still in that new exciting part of the relationship but it was also a bit like our first family holiday as N was 18 months. The weather was nice all week and we did something different every day, it was just a really nice week overall.

We've always said it was when we went to Margarita, which was nearly 8 years ago now!! We went on a trip to the mainland of Venezuela, canoeing and piranha fishing on the Orinoco river and staying in a water hut next over the river overnight, and a visit to some fantastic waterfalls that we walked under, plus we were supposed to fly past Angel Falls, but it was too cloudy to see anything or fly too close (similarly on the same holiday, on the sunset cruise we went on it was also cloudy so we didn't see any sunset - I'm sure it won't surprise you that some people actually complained about that!! And another boat trip to an island nearby you're supposed to be able to see dolphins nearby, but there were none when we went)
We also met some great friends there who we kept in touch with and visited each other, but unfortunately have split up since, but had some great times at night with all the free booze (all inclusive), and some of the cheapest meals I've ever had at a local town (I think it was less than £10 for 4 pizzas, and about 10 bottles of beer, plus other bits and pieces!!)
Our honeymoon to Sri Lanka (including a few days tour) and Maldives was fantastic, but just wasn't quite as good.
Wow, coming back with a suitcase of clean clothes!!!
Maldives here, the most amazing laid back, friendly and astoundingly beautiful place. It was heaven. I want to go back for a big (say 10yr) anniversary. I've been told though that the islands are meant to be disappearing and will be under water within 20 years?
And as you said cp, a boozy holiday at 20 with a girlfriend a close second lol!

A bit different for me as we have always have kids cause Lauren and Rob came as a package (she was 1 when we got together) but I would say New York on our own was fantastic and our first family holiday to Turkey when Lauren had just turned 3 was really memorable, we had such a great time at a fantastic resort and it's when I really got to know Lauren and our relationship started to form

Before i met H it was probably our first trip to Florida. When we got home we were all on a downer for months afterwards.
With H it has to be our first holiday together to Benidorm, i hated Benidorm, but it was nice to just spend some time with H, it was also his first time abroad.

My honeymoon sans kids, was ace - we went to Jamaica and basically got drunk, sunbathed and shagged constantly.
With the kids, best break was Center Parcs, so relaxing and the kids had a ball.

Cornwall for my 21st Birthday. I decided to go with my Mum and step Dad, who I hadn't been away with since I was 15. So glad I did as my Step Dad died shortly afterwards.
As we went for my Birthday, he made sure we did loads of fun things, so I have tons of happy memories of him now, and it was the most fun i'd had on any of our holidays, including those abroad.

Vegas, very closely followed by 2010's ski hol.
CP 5 weeks sounds fantastic!
LB - we are considering PP as our first family holiday, anywhere you'd recommend with a 3 month old?
Ours is without a doubt our honeymoon in Mexico, i so wish we could go back!

Hmmm, Malaysia (used to live there and went back for old times sake) - KL, Penang, Perhentians islands, Singapore, Melacca and back to KL. Either that or Thailand - Bangkok, Chang Mai and Ko Samui but in style. Cant wait until the kids are older and we can go off adventuring in the far east.
When we were young as my parents both taught we had some pretty cool long holidays. Fly drive US - san fran, la, disneyland, yosemite, bryce, zion, grand canyon, tahoe, vegas etc. Also lived in California for a bit which was fab. My parents were pretty brave!

Our Honeymoon to Thailand nearly 7 years ago now. It was fab. The following year we went to Santorini for my sisters wedding which was fab as it was a big family holiday and our best friends came out for the second week so it was a great fun boozy hol. Elliott is my Santorini baby!

All of your holidays are so exotic. Mine had to be our honeymoon up in Scotland.

Another for New York here- was just before I got pregnant and we loved every minute! Would love to go back but it's not exactly baby friendly so maybe in a few years!
Love the fact that you can secretly pretend you're in Sex and the City... Or maybe I'm just a saddo.

Definately 8 years ago when H and I went to Hawaii. It was a work trip for him as he worked for an American company and they had fab annual meetings. So it was all expenses paid for 1 week staying at the Hyatt Regency in Kauai which was amazing. h did have to go to a few meetings but I just lounged by the pool all day. The second week we had to pay for so flew to Maui and didn't have quite as luxurious accomodation but was still lovely. And despite him saying valentines day is a load of commercial clap trap it was our 1st and he spent the day searching for someone to make a picnic for us which was amazing and we went to a deserted beach to watch the sunset over Molakai. Was slightly spoiled by all the flies but the thought was there lol.
