Since the monkeys came along the furthest we've been is Weymouth! I'm not sure that's sad or not?! The last time hubby I went abroad was on our honeymoon over 8 yrs ago. We went to Kenya, and loved it. Before then we also went to Cyprus and New York! I really must get those monkeys a passport each. The thing is though until now, we haven't really wanted to, or felt the need to take them abroad.
Now they are getting older I'm thinking it's about time we started to explore more and see some of the world. The UK is fab, but there are so many more places I'd like to go myself and I'm thinking about where the monkeys might like to go too. Somewhere not too far away to begin with would be good.
For starters maybe a day trip to Europe? They've yet to experience the ferry or Le Shuttle and of course have never flown! I think I was about eleven when I first flew. Maybe a break in the Mediterranean, either for us all or just hubby and I! I quite fancy a Mediterranean cruise. At their ages now, maybe this would be the ideal adults only getaway!
Plenty of options are open to us if we were to cruise the Med. We could fly there and then cruise over a number of nights to suit us with an itinerary that we like the look of most. One starting in Palma and finishing in Malaga sounds perfect. With stops on the way at a few places I've always wanted to visit. Barcelona, Valencia, Cartagena and Gibraltar. Sunshine, scenery, good food, great company, fab service. What more could one ask for?! I can see myself now, sunbathing on deck, glass of wine in hand, a good book.............Oh wait. Back to reality! School runs, washing, ironing, shopping. I can dream.
Dreams do become reality sometimes though don't they! I will get that Mediterranean cruise one day and we will take the monkeys abroad on holiday.
Now where are those passport forms? I need to experience at least one cruise in my lifetime with or without the monkeys.
