July 26, 2006
Well for a while it was looking like my summer was going to be entirely devoid of exciting adventures but now Caroline has agreed to go somewhere fun with me in September which will be excellent. The only real decision is where to go, and being a Guardian reading liberal i've been checking their travel pages for recommendations of last minute holidays. My favourites options were going somewhere like Dubrovnic for a mish mash of culture and beach, a very cheap offer of going to Rhodes for just £139 each including flights, transfers and accomodation, or this:
7 nights in Morocco: £150
This price is for accommodation in a luxury tent at the Jardin d'Issil campsite 10 miles south of Marrakech. The tents are decorated with coloured silks and huge floor cushions and most contain a queen sized bed, air conditioning and en suite bathrooms. The site has a shared pool which is surrounded by Berber tents . Price is based on two sharing throughout July or August. Excludes flights.
Morocco sounds a bit crazy but would be very exciting and certainly wouldn't be my typical type of holiday, I'm sure we could get twin beds instead of queen size, anyway I'm waiting to find out what Caroline's budget is and what she thinks of my ideas before we make a decision. Does anybody else have any good holiday destinations.
P.S. This is Caroline
