I can do a self-drive holiday in Biarritz France, staying in 'mobile homes' for about £1400, or I can fly (changing planes 3 times each way!) have a reasonable hotel and a car for 2 weeks for.... £1400.
We really wanted to keep the cost down this year, but everything is working against that. I can fly to Dehli and get 2 weeks in a hotel - a reasonable hotel - for that, and if Chris hadn't got her heart set on going to France again then I'd probably try for a week in Dehli and a week in Jaipur.
Maybe it's time to explore Scotland? Better get a raincoat.
