PostSubject: Hi everyone   Sat Sep 25, 2010 4:33 pm

Hayzer - thanks for your PM suggesting I post something. I've been a member since June (followed a link on TA) and was delighted to see so many familiar names here. I now log on most days to enjoy all the fun that goes on & pick up some holiday tips but, to be honest, I'm not that great at contributing so I'll just make my first post a potted "holiday history".
I've been visiting Mallorca on-and-off for about 30 years - as a family when my children were young, with my husband before he died and for the past 7 years, either on my own or with my sister. I've stayed in or visited most parts of the island (apart from the north-east) and love each area for different reasons - it depends on what sort of holiday I feel like at the time.
My husband and I travelled all over the world when the children finally graduated and left home (and we became rich overnight!!) but now, I really don't want to endure any more long-haul flights or to see any more far-flung sights. I love Spain & all (well nearly all) things Spanish so I just go to the Costa del Sol, Mallorca or the Canary Islands, with an occasional French gite family get-together. As someone on the forum said - it's the same sun shining wherever you are!
When I was widowed & then retired, my financial & time circumstances obviously changed so I decided to have 3 or 4 "budget" holidays a year, rather than 1 luxury one. I book my flights, hotels & transfers separately & always manage to get really good deals - especially as I don't travel in the peak season. My next trip is on my own to Can Pastilla for 9 nights in October. I like it there as it's got a sort of "lived-in" feeling and is so close to Palma for shopping, sight-seeing & transport links. I'm really looking forward to sitting at a bar on the paseo with a glass (or 2) of vino blanco, watching the world go by - bliss!
I'm sorry this is a bit long - aren't you all glad I don't post a lot??!! I'm just going to add one more to the "holiday romance" thread & then I'll probably be back to my usual "reading-only" self.
Many thanks to you all for the daily entertainment and my best wishes for a great time on 3 October.
Jen

Hi Nanyjen (is that a euphemism for a character in ninja turtles) what a warm and normal person you give the impression of, not like the usual discordant reprobates that appear to have lodged in this site, keep us informed and let us know more of your history, where did you travel with your late husband, shed a tear with us and we will be proud to listen and converse, this is a becoming a social site for general misfits (I am a psychedelic hippie at heart that got lost in the material world) and we need a sane normal persons viewpoint and thoughts on life to help us through the torments of our lives, even if you don't feel like contributing at times just say "white mice" which according to Ford Prefect are the meaning of life and everything

Well Nannyjen if you can make head or tail of what our pal Dadsbarmy is on about you are more astute than most of us or else an afficianado of A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy as he undoubtedly is.I tried to read that trendy book when it was trendy but it was really hard work and I gave up.It probably says more about me because I could not get into The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings either.

That post of yours was spot-on.We can identify with it.You are a welcomed member of this forum.
