Off to the New Forest this weekend; English weekends can be great too! Earlier this year we visited Thame in Oxfordshire, brilliant little quintessentially English town with a terrific selection of great pubs, all of them rammed on a weekend night, down its High Street. Great weekend just a little spoiled by the January rain. There’s also been two Peak District walking weekends; Derbyshire is Phil’s homeland. The Biggin Hall Hotel is highly recommended by the way. And of course a weekend in Padstow, including an awesome meal at Rick Stein’s seafood restaurant, Padstow and it’s surrounding areas is a place we love and know extremely well.

So this weekend is Ringwood in the New Forest; there’s a London weekend before we head off to Malaysia in August. We have a Geneva weekend booked in November, and then our 3-week December sortie to Mexico to round off the year. Budapest is then 2019’s first destination.
