I haven't been abroad for anything other than weekend city breaks for years and years. Me and my lass really fancy just a week's relaxing holiday, preferably somewhere coastal, but also has a little more to it than that, perhaps with a good looking old town or something.

Has anyone got any fairly inexpensive recommendations please? Flights from Newcastle are a lot more preferable too.

Split. Flights from Newcastle. Looks beautiful and chilled out with a nice old town, also on the coast. I was looking for similar so that's where I have booked

Split is f***ing mental busy. Good luck getting a spot on the beach. Nice old town though.

Lagos is nice, aye. Also Sagres which is close. Flights to Faro are cheap.

Is 4-5 days a good enough stay in New York?

For sure, in fact you'll be exhausted after that.

Would highly recommend not bothering with too many of the standard sights. Gets better when you go see the more interesting stuff.

Also don't walk everywhere like I tried to do the first time :lol:

It's plenty. We went for 5 days around the Christmas period. I think it's $31 for an unlimited weekly train ticket, which is an essential purchase. In that 5 days we went to basically every tower in the place, Central Park, 9/11 site, Bronx Zoo etc. and still had plenty of time for food and drinks.

Looking forward to going back and feeling like we don't have to see everything. I think it'll be far better the second time.

It's better every time, absolutely love it. Last time spent most of the trip in Brooklyn, which is class. Only went over to Manhattan once.

I'd move there if they'd let any forrins work.

I'm thinking 4-5 days in New York and 2-3 in Philadelphia.


Flights are ridiculously cheap.

I'd echo what Ian and Frog said. 4-5 days is pretty much spot on for New York, we did quite a lot of walking when we were there but you'll definitely want to get the weekly pass for the subway

The ferry is excellent as well, much better way to get between Brooklyn and Manhattan etc. Staten Island ferry obviously as well.

There's a ferry app where you can buy tickets and see the departures and all that.

We went to Maro (just outside of Nerja) last summer and AirBnB'd it. Maro's a lovely little town with a couple of secluded beaches a short walk away.
Was spot on and we managed a night in Malaga on the way back as well.

Takes a lot to get people from other countries to the Central US. Everyone from the UK I've spoken to about Chicago who's been here is in love with it though. Definitely worth it for both cities.
