I dont know much about Bulgaria. My uncle went to Cyprus though and had a great time. Mind you, it was about 15yrs ago but sometimes he still mentions it so it must of left an impression.

Have a great time wherever you go.

I went to bulgaria when I was like 5 (so almost 20 years ago); my parents would never ever ever go back. Although a friend of mine went last year and she LOVED it.

I think Cyprus is said to be expensive; bulgaria won't be in the euro (correct me if I'm wrong) so it will be cheaper.

Yea, I started another thread, but I think with a title like "holidays" yours is probably more obvious :)

I'm off to Lanzarote on the 2nd July for 2 weeks :)

I know :D; however we are going to the 'windy area of the island'. My dad winges about the heat, so we pick windy spots; my parents went a few years ago, so I'm going to the same hotel on their recommendation.

Last year I went to Majorca and my parents were there for 2 weeks and me and my bf for one wee, I came back with a better than than my mam who sits in the sun most of the day...I sat in the shade and came back a lovely colour...my bf is "scared" of the sun he once said "I play on the computer therefore the sun will burn me" - because the sun dislikes computer geeks therefore burns them?

haha i love that logic! where on earth did he come up with that?

I can't wait to go on holidays, i better get the johnson's holiday sun out before i go though, i don't want to blind everyone with the glare of the sun off my white skin!

windy is good, you always seem to get a better colour when there's a bit of wind, probably because when it's too hot it's impossible to stay out too long. i love the heat but i'm not a hardcore tanner like you see on holidays. those women that get up at 6am and don't leave til the sun goes down!

goodness knows, he's adament it's true though...just like we had a conversation that "pizza is healthy for you" - no amount of me saying it's unhealthy was ever going to get him to say it was unhealthy. So now I keep bringing it up to make him laugh.

I think it's because you don't feel the heat as much; my only downside to windy spots is I'm always cold (here), so when I come out of the pool I freeze.



Lol on a side note; it just reminded me with the pizza thing I wrote; I was discussing postcodes with the guy I sit with at work...he said the closer into the city you are the less number wise your post code is...I.e. the city is 1 and then the surrounding areas increase in number...whilst he's probably 90% correct; I won the "discussion" - I used to live in a place called Blyth which is about 30miles North(ish) of Newcastle, and I also used to live in a place called Wallsend - about 6miles east of Newcastle. Wallsend is where Hadirans Wall ends (Walls end - I had to explain it to my bf); anyway the postcode for Blyth is NE24 and for Wallsend NE28; so I said that the theory is obvioulsy wrong; then he said that it's obvioulsy because Blyth was established before Wallsend (I don't actually know what Blyth is - it does have pit houses; but it's a fairly modern place)....my clincher on the "discussion" which made the WHOLE office laugh was..."So Blyth was built and established BEFORE Hadrian the Roman built his wall there?" - he then agreed that maybe Wallsend was there first. (I suppose you had to be there but it was funny at least).
