I donít want to sound ungrateful but ...

We have come for a week to Marjorca until we find out whatís happening with DH job later this year, and itís been nice but weíve not done this for 20 years and think it might be another 20 years until we do it again if ever.
Weíve been very lucky in going to Florida and this holiday has cemented thatís what we like, Iím not one for lounging round the pool Iíve discovered, buffet for lunch and dinner have been great choices, but fed up serving myself lol
Loved a bit of sun, but missed the heat of Florida
So Majorca itís been fun, but not for us sadly, but a short flight and some sunshine away from work has been great

I am sure it has been a welcome break for you, a time to put you ur feet up. We feel that Disney has spoilt us, we now compare every break to a Disneyland break, we know we shouldn't but we do.

Having a different type of holiday is a good thing as it has obviously reaffirmed that your heart is in Florida.

We are going on a cruise in 6 weeks time, we are intrigued to see if we enjoy it, as it will raise questions on our trip next year

We are in Turkey at the moment and are feeling exactly the same. Donít get me wrong the hotel is 5 star and has been great but the buffet is overwhelming we are looking forward to a meal being served to us when we are home. Our hotel is very German and Russian dominated and spending time round the pools with almost every bed occupied by a smoker is choking and not enjoyable. We have spent a fair bit of time either in the pool or down on the beach in the sea. At the same time we have had enough of the Florida theme parks too so will have to think carefully where to go next.

Awwwww we enjoy our Europe holidays on our own as we do like to lounge around the pool and soak up the sun but canít beat Florida with the family, we still spend a lot of time around the villa pool as we donít do the parks anymore but the dining side of it I can understand , we have done several AI and itís just the laziness I enjoy, so much better to go out and dine instead of up and down to the buffet to help yourself though . I think next time we go away on our own to Europe we will do either self catering or bed and breakfast .
We wouldnít do Florida on our own, thatís our ď family holiday ď but Florida can be just as cheap as going to Europe if you take the parks out of the equation .
Whereabouts in Majorca are you ?

Which hotel are you staying in ? Most 5* hotels have several a-la-carte restaurants you can choose from , we loved our Turkey holidays and used the restaurants , Greek, Chinese, Mexican, Turkish etc .
We didnít notice any smoking , maybe that was just luck but itís very hit and miss in Europe as they donít have the same laws as we do regards smoking .

The smoking is awful, next to you on a lounger, the table next to you at a bar for a drink, lunch inside and they still smoke
As a non smoker maybe Iím more sensitive to it, but itís just awful, but obviously the norm Iím not used too

If I went to Majorca again, Iíd have to drive to Palma, go on a boat trip and try and explore the island. We are going to Kefalonia and plan on exploring everywhere, boat trips. I love looking at the beach and sea but canít just lie there all day. My husband hates buffets, he would have me serve him if he could!

We may have just been lucky , there have been times where there has been the odd smoker but not to the extent you describe , we notice the sun bed claiming by the Germans more than anything, but then we are just as bad we like to get a good spot and in our defence we are there for the duration not just to put the towel down and go off for the day .
We tend to pick the adult hotels as they seem to be quieter and usually a good standard , I say usually as there has been one or two that we wouldnít go back to .
Iím always on the look out for new areas to visit , I like the Balearicís as itís a short flight .
