If all goes to plan, how many trips of four or more days do you hope to take throughout 2011?

If things go as planned (where's that bit of wood to touch?) this year will be first in 5 years that we have freerein to holiday as we wish. Gf is very keen to make up for lost time. Cornwall in april, NW Scotland for june, Glastonbury for november are pretty much certain, from there it's as much as poss, seems like most nights whilst watching nature programs I get told "we've got to go there as well", I also have a suspission that unusualy for us school holidays are on calendar as well.

March-April: a week in the isle of Wight -- never been there before! Perhaps because it's so close to us -- thanks for the idea Andy & Marion Stothert! (The vineyard is a 'must-see'!)

Late April: a week - ten days in Herefordshire. Ancient castles, the wonderful medieval church at Kilpeck, great pubs, etc.,etc.

May-June: Ireland for three weeks -- Ring of Kerry & birding on Great skellig, then to County Clare and the beautiful Burren and its spring flowers.

In between? Birds at Slimbridge -- this week, before they migrate -- a night or two ( maybe up to 4 nights) on the somerset levels -- Birding again -- Westhay, Ham Wall and the hawk & Owl sanctuary.

Then -- the world (well good old U.K. at least!) is 'our oyster' -- isn't retirement wonderful?!

Thank goodness for RET (road equivalent tarif) Barra,the Uists,Skye,Harris & Lewis, then up to Durness , Cape Wrath, across to Thurso ,John a groats, Brora, Kinlochewe, Onich, then down to the lakes,then back to see the 'kids' near Brum,

We had plans for 5 main trips- covering about 25 sites.
Sadly Rosie had to go into hospital in May for removal of an ovarian cyst and having just recovered from that a Mammogram showed that she had a cancerous lump in her breast.
So at the moment she is back in hospital.
We managed to get away twice.
I have to say how very helpful the Camping and Caravanning Club have been in refunding our deposits when I have had to cancel- and the private sites are holding them for future bookings.
