We managed to fit another short break towards the end of 2023. A golf break in the Algarve with our friends Nicky and Simon. Link above.

2024 promises to be quite a big one for us. We have a 3 week holiday booked in March/April when we will take a cruise from Florida to California through the Panama Canal. With a few days each end of the cruise this will be a 3 week holiday. Of course, ending in Los Angeles means we have to spend 3 nights in Disneyland, it's compulsory.

Music will also play a big part this year. So far we have tickets for the following: Bruce Springsteen (twice, Cardiff and London), Paul Heaton (Cardiff), Foo Fighters (London), The War on Drugs (Royal Albert Hall, London), AC/DC (London), Taylor Swift (Warsaw including 4 nights in Krakow before) and a week at the Green Man festival in the Brecon Beacons. Pearl Jam may also be added if we get tickets.
