Since Jul 2006

35-49 year old female


I had spent loads of family holidays in the UK and didn't venture abroad until I was about 20 ish on a holiday to Portugal with my boyfriend. Since then we had a couple more of the standard 2 weeks in the sun but in the last couple of years we have become a bit more adventurous. I've always regretted not taking the time when I left school to travel and experience different countries and we now plan to have as many holidays to new locations as possible. We still like our time in the sun but try to mix both relaxing and exploring and always prefer to stay in the quieter areas of resorts (prefer a meal and a nice quiet drink and meeting both travellers and locals than the neon bars etc). Our aim is to visit 1 different city a year. At present we are enjoying the not so popular Eastern European countries. it will take a while but we will get around the world in time!
