We've been to spain in the summer for the past 4/5 years but won't be going next year. Also have been to Florida, Belgium and south of france. Won't be able to afford it next year though. We're very tempted to take up camping, and drive to France instead of flying anywhere. It was on the news that more and more people are taking up camping because of economical and environmental reasons.
Eurocamp is well worth a look at. I have booked 6 nights in a static at Easter which including my cash back through Quidco comes to £172 pounds. Will book Eurotunnel through clubcard so just then need petrol etc.
We didn't have a holiday for a few years until this year, which bought home to me how lovely they are so they have actually gone higher up my priority list, but at a fairly low budget. If we get completely skint we will houseswap with a friend in a similar position. But for now I have paid for my Eurocamp holiday and have a farm booked in Germany for the summer, which the two months where we don't pay council tax will cover accomodation. Hopefully I can just squeeze enough clubcard vouchers to cover both Eurotunnel crossings.
Trinity do you have friends in another part of the country you could swap with or hose sit if they go away ? Friends came here for a week whilst we were away this year. They spent £100 on top of food but it would have been less if they hadn't spent £35 on guitar hero and a few other bits as they hadn't prepared for wet weather.
We've had lots of years where we haven't gone away but going away this summer after a difficult year with my MIL in Spain dying, amongst other things, made me realise how theraputic getting away can be if you can find a way of doing it.
