    Ireland/England/Beach trip

    Yeah Yeah I probably won't go but fcuk off and give me the info anyways 5555

    I am thinking one of my trips next year will be in Ireland and England and then would like to try and get to a beach nearby in a somewhat close country
    Looks like late June is a good time to go? Weather may be decent but not massive crowds?


    I was thinking just a few days in London area(any possible cool day trips somewhere from London?)
    Ireland for a week
    Then a week elsewhere, would prefer someplace a bit warmer but not a total necessity. Possibly Spain or Portugal or somewhere else warm/sunny?

    But totally up for suggestions
    And to be honest, I think this one will happen. Just makes sense that I know a decent amount of people in England and maybe meet some new BM's

    If June... can get to Sandbanks (Near Bournemouth) from London. Lovely beach area (for England). Cornwall/Devon probably a bit far. Brighton isn't far away either. Depends what you are after?

    In June most of Europe will be hot. So the Med anywhere... Corfu is nice. Little beach villages scattered around the island... and not all are tourist-bound... and Corfu Town is nice.

    Or Kefalonia... didn't SE go there a year or two back? Looked stunning where he stayed...

    I am very open
    Although I think one of Ao's close friends still lives in Portugal..........if that's the case my choice will be made

    Other than that whatever is warmest and cool beach towns/areas

    Ao really wants to see Prague so was thinking possibly a couple days there so if that(and no Portugal) than possibly Greece or Croatia

    For a day trip out of London, I'd like to see more countryside
    I thought Brighton was trashy?

    No, Brighton is quite nice. You thinking of Blackpool?

    Countryside? Henley-on-Thames area is lovely. Really nice towns along the river Thames just outside of London. Windsor not far away either. Another nice town.

    Easy train ride.............perfect day trip

    I liked London a lot my only visit
    My wife does not like busy...............especially if it is somewhere new so London might do her head in a bit( I thought it was much busier and bustling than NYC)

    I would plan on seeing him somehow

    And yes I think it would be Greece if not Portugal to visit her friend and husband( they both don't drink so they will have to watch me drink my face off 5555)

    Looking at flights, all added up isn't that bad( I know some have baggage extras)
