I’m just about to go on two weeks holiday with Mr B, which we are really excited about. Our last 2 week holiday was when we went on holiversary to Sardinia, (but we have had week holidays to Wales and Belfast in between) and we’ve started to find that 2 week holidays are the best for being able to properly relax and forget about normal life. Mr B loves his job as a minister, though it can be quite a demanding and draining job, so we are really looking forward to a rest!
Our holiday starts tonight when we drive down the A9 to near Stirling. We’ll take a night’s rest with Mr B’s sister, before heading down to Leeds on Monday. We are staying at a De Vere Village Urban Resort for 2 nights on the way down to our next destination. We stayed at one of these in Manchester, and it was fantastic – really well placed slightly outside of the city, but Mr B was especially pleased as there was both a Chiquitos and a Nandos within a stone’s throw of the hotel! Our aim in Leeds is to just have a completely relaxing time for 2 days – as well as popping into Leeds or perhaps heading to nearby York for a day, there’s good leisure facilities, and we booked quite early to get an Upperdeck room on the cheap which has lots of little extras that we can enjoy.
From there we head down to spend the rest of the week in Nottingham with our friends and their son (our godson – who is 2) so we are really looking forward to seeing them and relaxingsome more!
The second week we are mostly spending in Prague! I visited there in December 2008 with a friend – and I loved it. However, we’ll be looking forward to some nice summary temperatures, rather than minus temperatures and ice!
We got a good flights & 5 nights b+b deal with a hotel in the centre of the city, so expect lots of Prague posts on my return! This week as well as washing clothes and packing, I have been poring over guidebooks and Trip Advisor to find the top picks for our stay. I’m quite a planner – nothing excites me more than practising a few phrases that will get us by, finding activities that are off the beaten track to find, as well as finding out about local delicacies to try!
