Feeling a bit down today (taking longer than I thought to get back to full strength!) so, to cheer myself up, I spent some time looking at flights/hotel for September.
Ended up booking Easyjet flights from Luton (25 September - 3 October) as they were quite a bit more expensive than last year & my May, 2013 flights - & will probably go up even more as time goes on. Mick, you did the right thing by booking as soon as they were released.
Also booked the Plaza Hotel in Santa Ponsa again - it certainly wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea but was just right for me.
So that’s me done & dusted for this year - CDS in February & Mallorca in May & September …………. and I can’t wait!!
Just got to start saving for “spends” now!

Yep that 5pm piano bar is brilliant lol I love it, I remember the first time we went a lot of years ago, it was the day our flight was cancelled so we had an extra day in maga
Anyway I thought what the hell am I doing in here hehehe I love it now though

That's great news Jen
I think I would stay in SP this year if we go. The Beer Fest is on and i'd like to go there at night, at least one night.
I was disappointed with the Piano Bar last Oct, it was so packed, at least 200 people on the pavement outside, there was nothing like the crack we had when we all went the year before on delboys last day.
Plus we're going to PN in July so not much point in going back there again this year.

That pic was after about 50 people had left beeech. We only had one and went in the Brittania.
It wasn't a one off either, the previous day we was returning from SP on the bus about half 5 and went past, people were in the road outside and the bus had to swerve it was so busy.
I didn't like it inside when getting served. You had you hands full of drinks when coming out, having to squeeze past people that would suddenly start jumping up and down, also anyone could have just stuck their hand in your pocket and had your wallet, you wouldn't have been able to tell who'd done it.

I hate places that busy - I get claustrophobic
A few years ago, friends of ours went early and saved a table in Mrs Doyles bar......it was St Patricks' Night
I walked in - and straight back out...it was rammed - and I panicked ( at how deep the queue was for the bar )
only joking !
They weren't best pleased the next day

Yeah, busy is fine, rammed is no joke.
