I'm sure there's been holiday threads before but I had no luck finding them during a (very brief) search, so I've started a new one for 2012.

 

Far ye gan?

 

And, anyone done the whole Orlando experience, theme parks, attractions, swimming with dolphins and other shite like that?

 

Doing a bit of research for a possible family trip there in October, and all I can see are dollar signs - and fucking loads of them.  :o

Only a trip to London booked. Thinking about New York but will depend on cash I think.

 

Went to Florida a few times as a kid. Always stayed in a villa in Kissimmee which I think was about 20mins drive from the Disney parks. Get your own little pool and most of those resorts of Villas have golf courses within them. Played golf quite a few times over there. I enjoyed the Universal parks better than the Disney ones, but that probably depends on age. Busch Gardens in Tampa worth a visit. We went to the Kennedy Space Centre but canna say I enjoyed it too much.

I'm going to to do much the same thing myself in September. Booked a Villa with 5 mates not far from where Penfold mentioned.

 

Also going to Miami at the end of March for a week.  :thumbsup:

Off to Swizerland for some skiing in 2 weeks, then Austria 2 weeks after that for a boys long weekend on the piste.

 

Sadly no summer holiday for me this year as we have a big project in July at work, but the wife and kids off to Spain without me. Week of golf in Tenerife in October and a wedding in Aberdeen in November.

Manc, you MUST go to Parc Guell in Barca and you MUST go to La Sagrada Familia. Gaudi rocks.

 

Orlando is shite. Worst part of America and worst place in the world. Just a horrible flat place full of horrible fat bastards.

 

Aye been before, love the city! But it's one that you always manage to find something new :) Will definitely be going back to Parc Guell though  :thumbsup:

St Lucia this year for my honeymoon is booked. Nothing else so far.

 

Planning a few holidays in Scotland this year, perhaps go back to Skye again.

 

 

Skye? Jesus. Have you seen the Hogmany Still Game special where they go to that remote island? That's what Skye reminded me of. The locals stare at ye because you're in a car they're nae familiar with! It was creepy but worth a day trip. Not longer!

Went to Ullinish on Skye for some of my honeymoon and it was brilliant.

You didn't wear your KKK outfit did you?

 

I think Skye is great for a visit.

Skye is horrendous. I couldn't pass through quick enough. It's the Florida of Scotland, just not as flat. People-wise, just a blight on humanity. At least Fife and Glasgow are real in terms of their inhumanity. Skye folk are just weird. Edgar Allen Poe was thinking of Skye fruits when he wrote his shizz.

 

South Uist however, through Skye one travels to find, is a delight. Their people are slightly less weird and more open, not being as cursed by Satan but their landscape is one in which you can breathe. In Skye, one gasps for air, the environs being cursed in blackness.

I didn't realise that honeymoons were traditional with civil partnerships.  ;)

It is great for a visit. Just a very short visit.

In what way does Skye compare to Florida?
