‘I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensible’  (Dwight D. Eisenhower)

Where to next?

That’s a decision we put off till after Christmas. We’d only just returned from our South-East Asia tour, and I did lay down some criteria for the next trip:

‘It should be short haul, and we stay in one place. Unpack once, and don’t pack again till it’s time to go home.’

So, here we are, surrounded by brochures, and a lot of websites in the ‘bookmarks’ folder. And, guess what? None of the places we’re considering meet these criteria! Another thing we need to consider; my passport expires in June, and some places require six months’ validity remaining on said document. So, I may need to renew early.

One thing we did notice … some firms are already advertising their 2021 trips! We did see one we rather fancied, which isn’t happening till late next year. We don’t generally plan that far ahead … but, we cut the ad out and will have another look at it a bit closer to the time.

I think we’ve decided upon where we want to go; we’re still trying to choose the operator that offers the best deal. I’ll let you know where when it’s set in concrete, and we’ve made a firm booking


  1. Sounds like you’re spoilt for choice, happy travels for 2020!!! ✈️
