    We just spent 10 days on Tenerife and it was mostly hell!!
    Sold as a family friendly complex with access to local Canarian culture/cuisine. Full English and kebab shops are not really all that Canarian I suspect.
    Complex was pleasant, clean and had the essential kit needed for self catering......
    Family across the way were what can only be described as Chavtastic, 4 or 5, 7 - 10 year old kiddies F'ing and blinding at each other and at parents, same from parents to kids and each other until 11:30pm at least.
    Then at around 0300 we got the club bunnies crawling in and carrying on their celebrations.......
    Tried to have a word with the Chavtastics which worked for a whole 10 mins, asked the management to have a word or move us, much the same result. Functioning on around 2.5 to 3 hrs sleep per night with an autistic son who gets up around 0500 every day.........
    Beaches and complex pool were pretty good. One saving grace was being able to hire a car and took a trip up to Mt Teide (just amazing) and a trip to the old Capital in the North - San Cristóbal de La Laguna which is just so beautiful and not touristified (yes my word, and a good one too ;) )at all., lovely people, food, drink and not Curry house in sight :).
    Looking for 18-30 time, def head to South Tenerife, anything else, stay the hell away........

    Howdy, one of the highlights of our vacation was a short trip to EU HQ, Brussels. Along with our two young daughters,
    Hanna, 23 months and Maya just short few days from her 6th month anniversary.
    The trip was amazing, the city has so much to offer, Atomium park and Mini Europe are very impressive.
    We also roamed around old city in super cool electric small shuttle bus.
    There is also an unlimited amount of beer flavours and types. Definitely a nice city break.
    As we did travel with all the baby's equipment we memorized all of our photos by our OP's X and 3T, there was no time for a big camera. But overall we are very happy with shots we have taken.

    U know, I have free housing in Italy, I went once to Milano only, and since then I've not thought about going back to Italy again, I get handmade (dried) pasta every now and then from there, but I've been wondering lately if going or not, not rome, but Italy itself, how long did you stay in Rome and do you feel was enough to visit the city?

    Just got back from a holiday in Tenerife. Stayed in a nice family resort, chilled by the pool and ate too much. Visited the local clubs and ended up getting pick pocketed on the way out and that's how I lost my OPO on the first day and consequently have no photos from the whole trip

    Wir waren am Gardasee und haben unsere Zeit unter Anderem damit verbracht, zu wandern. Auf dem Monte Baldo entstand dann auch diese Aufnahme (OP2)

    Although I am Austrian, I will tell you about my summer vacation in English.

    Well I have visited Australia for 9 incredible weeks. It was an exchange programm so 6 people from our school went there by themselves. The trip took us like 30 hours, but it was defenitely worth it. The experience of meeting new people and a new culture is just amazing and it definitely helps broaden your horizon.

    Although it was winter in Australia it was warmer than late summer in Austria.

    We went to Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and spent some amazing days there doing sightseeing.

    In general it was an incredible journey and I am really looking forward for our exchange partners to come to Austria in November.
