    That will be a fabulous road trip above!

    We are taking the kids on a two week Baltic cruise, visiting lots of countries and spending two days in St Petersburg.

    It should be fabulous and educational- the wife an I did it years ago before the kids came along.
    So clever my foot fell off.

    Kids will be 19 and 16 this year, so making the most of going on holiday before they abandon us and go off on their own holidays.
    Yeah right dream on. If they are anything like mine they will still be tagging along for a free holiday well after that! The days of "I stopped going on holiday with my parents at 17/18" seem long gone

    Yes, yesterday glorious sunshine, today torrential downpours- even with the weather such a beautiful place.

    I avoid taking holidays during the summer months. Never been a sun chaser. Going to be spending a week in Lithuania next month. Also thinking of a week spent between Gdansk and Warsaw in May. Also been thinking about a trip to Kyiv. Thereíll be other trips too.

    My holidays revolve around staying at my Son's place in Fla.

    Going out for April/May and then usually again November/December as I like Thanksgiving, getting the tree etc.
    Cheers,
    Neil.

    Very much looking forward to showing the kids the weird and wonderful USA.
    Have you been there before? We went to Rehoboth Beach after a week in Washington. That's 10 yrs ago. We'd rented a house near School Lane. It took ages to get there and we didn't use the car anymore during the week after we'd parked it on the driveway. School Lane is pretty close to all amenities, so we walked. In general, Delaware during the summer is: parking the SUV and get to the beach on a bike / on foot. The traffic jams are monstrous but easily avoidable with the use of bikes.

    Apart from this detail, it will be a great trip with kids! Lots to see and experience.

    Long distance flights are now a thing of the past. We went to India last year and the flights were just a PITA. Comfort take a priority when you get older.
    Have you considered flying Business or First Class? I've no experience of First but Business (Club World) on BA is sublime. It's so nice and comfy that I'm a little reluctant to get off the plane.

    Club world is honestly terrible! So much so people class BA first as their business offering (used to be the world's best business).

    The new BA club world seats on
    select routes is a massive improvement compared to the current offering.

    I'm surprised you think BA club world is sublime, the hard product isn't comfy compared to the market and until the recent switch to do&co food was poverty.

    I've flown both BA first & CW, when flying OW It would have to be Qatar or Qantas otherwise I stick to *A carriers

    I'm surprised that you are surprised. Compared to Economy, Club World is sublime. My point was if comfort is stopping Mick P from going long haul, an upgrade to CW or 1st is a dramatic improvement over Economy in terms of comfort. I wasn't blown away by the food in CW but the overall experience was great.

    I have no idea what you are on about in your disclaimer. It sounds like a coded message.

    2 weeks in Dubai at the JA Beach. Golf, sea and eating.
