    We do the drive to the south of France most years and have done so since our children were small. It's Uzes that we are heading to this summer. Mr Gee40 turns 50 at the start of August and the sun and red wine are his idea of a perfect way to celebrate the day. Mine too, but my birthday's in February

    We do it over two days, stopping at a Campanile en route and have devised a pretty efficient method of getting round Lyon without getting stuck in the autoroute jams.

    Cape Verde for 3 weeks then in October a week in Italy with my son with a couple of long weekends away with the lads to Amsterdam and Prague,

    Could be going to New York at Christmas for a week just depends on friends availability,

    Its these things that keep me going but unfortunately work will not be paying for it although they do pay my wages which pays for our hols so in a nutshell work will be paying for it after all hehe!


    @rickjames: thanks for that! made my day!

    Norfolk. We have a place there and it's only two hours away. Can't cope with anything more adventurous at the moment.

    We have given ourselves 24 hours, and haven't planned to stop anywhere overnight, we will catch the 6pm ferry to feed and sort kids and then drive throughout the night as much as possible whilst kids are asleep.

    Quite looking forward to it

    Nope, hate you too - at least you have a plan to go SOMEWHERE, albeit virtually....

    a) You don't like people
    b) You hate me anyway

    So what's the issue??
