Holibobs - that’s a fun, jaunty word isn’t it?
We are now fully ensconced in the tyranny of school holidays so need to plan any trips to the Nth degree. As such, using every available non school period to get away for the rest of the year.
October - off to Greece for a week. Small village on one of the Ionian Islands out of season so should be quiet. Hoping the weather holds up.
November - Dortmund for a long weekend (school Inset day on the Friday). Eldest’s school does German immersion from day one so keen to get her somewhere where she can practice her mad language skills. Dirt cheap to go to Dortmund in November perhaps unsurprisingly - the kids’ flights out were £7 each. Anyone got any Dortmund tips?
December - off to Bruges for Christmas It will be like a fairytale natch. Hate most elements of Christmas, but actually excited about being out of the country for it this year.
What have you guys got? Please let me live vicariously through your mega foreign trips please

Iceland in February. Portugal in May.
You know what book has some really good sections set in Budapest - this one…
Got dangerously close to pulling the trigger on a Dortmund Bayern ticket on Viagogo and booking a cheap flight the other day but it wouldn’t have been anything even approaching a sensible decision so I didn’t.
Campervan in Eskdale for a weekend in the middle of October.
Some kind of swank wigwam for a weekend in November. Know nowt about it really, wife’s friends organising.
Greece and Scotland next summer.
Try to get away for a night or two in the van as and when.
Really wanna go to Dortmund - Schalke at either ground (and stay somewhere nearby but better like Dusseldorf of Koln). Probably won’t be this season though
Might see if I can see some Beşiktaş or Fenerbache actually
