What are you looking forward to doing on your next holiday? - Share with Skyscanner
YanaMumsnet · 06/07/2020 17:00
We’ve all had to press pause on travel plans this year, while reminiscing about the great travel experiences we’ve had. While it hasn’t been easy, it’s also been a chance for us to reflect on the people we’re grateful to travel with, and think about the first trips we’ll take as things start to get better. Now that we’re almost ready to step out into the world again, Skyscanner wants to find out what you are looking forward to doing on your next holiday.
Here’s what Skyscanner has to say: “The past few months have been a truly eye-opening experience to what life would be like without travel. It has made us reflect and appreciate the impact travel has on us personally. As the world slowly opens up again and we start making plans to travel safely to reunite with the people and places we’ve missed, it also has us wondering how travel’s role has evolved in our lives.”
So we are asking you how have the past few months changed the way you see travel? Will you explore closer to home, or are you itching to complete your travel bucket list? What will be your travel goals - creating more memories with the family, or prioritising more time for yourself? What are the things you’ve missed the most when travelling?
Whatever your top list of things to do on your next holiday are, share on the thread below to be entered into a prize draw where one MNer will win a £200 voucher for a store of their choice (from a list).
Thanks and good luck,

We're planning on doing a family holiday in February or March (to Disneyland). It'll be our first proper family with our two children. Whilst it'll be abroad (as we live in the U.K.), we will be doing things to minimise risk in certain areas, such as driving instead of flying and distance where possible. Lockdown has made us desperate to book something to look forward to and we all deserve it.

Taking my toddler to the beach for the first time

I had to reschedule my honeymoon so I’m looking forward to snorkelling, chilling out on the beach, exploring jungles and ruins and eating delicious Mexican food.
I wanted to go on a family holiday to Costa Rica but with what’s happened this year I’ll be booking an AI tour package rather than going DIY.

I had big plans for this year. I work in a school, so I'm lucky enough to be able to be away for 6 weeks in the summer. After a pretty rough couple of years personally, my plan was to spend the summer, with my cousin at her home in Brisbane.
It was going to be my Shirley Valentine moment. I was going to travel in style. 2020 was going to be all about me.
Instead this year, I'm going to the coast for the weekend in October, with my closest friends and 'bubble mates' and I will talk to that wall, Pauline Collins styles, next year!
2021 is all about me!

The thing I am really looking forward to is just sitting at a pavement cafe with a glass of something cold and lovely, watching everyone go by.
I love people watching in the sunshine

I was lucky enough to go on lots of holidays all over the world in my carefree younger days and I am so glad I did it whilst I could.
I now only go on UK family holidays although it will most likely be next year before we are able to go again but we may have a couple of day trips to the coast when there are fewer people around.

Swimming in warm sea and drinking wine in the sun.
FawnDrench · 07/07/2020 20:00
Just to have someone else do the cooking is all I ask...
Cotswoldmama · 07/07/2020 20:02
We generally holiday in the uk as my husband hates flying and we can't really justify spending a lot on holidays. We will definitely go somewhere for a coastal holiday this year if we can but we have been put off by the recent scenes and Bournemouth and Brighton beaches.
Theimpossiblegirl · 07/07/2020 20:35
I was planning on enjoying all inclusive luxury in the Caribbean but now I'm looking forward to a few days in a log cabin in Wales.
Can't complain, we have been lucky to not be ill.

Had 2 holidays cancelled abroad this year so now feeling happier having booked a self catering cottage on Exmoor. Lots of walking, quiet beaches and can cook at cottage but to make up for that will treat ourselves to some nicer food than usual and hoping for some large pub gardens to eat and drink at too.
MumMemories · 07/07/2020 21:48
I've been working out over lockdown and feel in great shape. I want to windsurf and waterski with my new muscles!
NaePies · 07/07/2020 22:41
I am really looking forward to booking a flight to see my partner in another country. He is working away and I am hoping to be able to visit him soon. Visits to the beach, walks and a nice meal out will be on the itinerary
HaloeVera · 07/07/2020 23:34
I can't wait to go to the seaside, here or abroad, with DC and have ice creams, play on the sand, swim, stay in a cheap hotel with crisp sheets and a nice breakfast, it seems rather distant though.
AllNewThings · 08/07/2020 00:38
Usually I'm all about the relaxing and doing very little on holiday. We have 5 DC and our normal lives are hectic. We've done so much of that over this period though and I miss culture! I want to see and do things! I miss being amongst other people, so I think our next holiday will be very different.
MrsFrTedCrilly · 08/07/2020 00:38
Seeing my family and giving them a hug
Shortfeet · 08/07/2020 09:56
Looking forward to doing nothing
CompleteBarstool · 08/07/2020 11:08
Swimming in the sea to cool off, evening walks along the beach when it gets a bit cooler, sitting at an outdoor table at a bar/cafe watching the world go by whilst I drink a coffee or cold wine
Mitcholiver · 08/07/2020 14:36
We are going camping about an hour away. I'm looking forward to not having to juggle working from home with home schooling!! I'm also looking forward to my kids being able to explore and have some independence at the campsite.
TinyMetalBirds · 08/07/2020 14:56
Had hoped to go to the South of France this year but hadn't got around to booking before Covid struck - it was all looking very expensive and complicated anyway. Now we are going to a seaside village in Devon, I am just looking forward to relaxing by the sea and taking in some beautiful views.
Dontforgetyourbrolly · 08/07/2020 20:51
Taking my son to visit my dad in Italy hopefully! There are 8 people in my dad's village in Tuscany and he's the youngest one at 72 ! He's been doing everyone's shopping .
Ds is 6 and has been very worried about his grandad especially at the start of all this when Italy was on the news a lot .
KoalasandRabbit · 08/07/2020 20:57
We've had to cancel our holiday to Borneo, Perhentains and River Kwai, all booked directly, some of the money has been lost, mainly AirAsia and one deferred a year which we may or may not be able to use.
Until a vaccine will be very careful with travel and will stay in UK this year. Going to a castle in Devon with 50 acre gardens, closed to public but gardens open to us along with their mini golf, will go llama trekking on Dartmoor and on a boat trip to see seals, puffins, dolphins and porpoise hopefully and canyoning.
MakeTeaNotWar · 08/07/2020 22:36
Relaxing, not cooking, sleeping late, eating and drinking lots!!
torthecatlady · 09/07/2020 01:03
Dh and I would like an all inclusive trip to Mexico... I just want to do nothing whilst drinking cocktails and eating good food!
troyandabedinthemorning · 09/07/2020 05:14
I gave birth in April to our first child. My husband and I are taking shared parental leave and our plan was to introduce our daughter to other parts of the world together whilst we were both off work. We would still like to do this and would probably aim for Lisbon as our first stop as we fell in love with the food and culture there when we went a few years ago
