Belfast to Loch an Iúir via Derry City or Ballygawley>Omagh? Google maps suggests both similar duration.
Always go Derry but much of a muchness. Avoids Strabane I suppose.

Malaga, hotel Miramar… lovely spot but Malaga for food is amazing.. great city so far
The fish restaurant across the road is excellent MR, food in hotel also good
But have to say Malaga definitely a great city with some fabulous restaurants close to the cathedral

Taking the bride on first major august trip  since marriage ( in the 90s) normally had the month blocked out for the all Ireland
Getting old now, kids heading with their mates and just the two of us
We won’t know what to talk about

Yes fish place was great… though was booked solid when we headed across so had some beers instead !!
We’d cocktails every night in the rooftop terrace at the hotel..

As you say old great. Our kids all were in their own hols so we were in the same boat, eating and drinking sorted out the awkward conversations  ;D
Kinda hoping the same will sort us out

Not really a holiday  question but anyway.......

Have to do a through the night  trip from Derry to Galway.

Are there any Applegreen stations or 24 hour service stations  on this route,......just to break up the journey, have a drink  etc?

 Anybody been to Spain recently? What you need to prove you are vaccinated?  13 year old has one dose but never got 2nd as she got COVID 3 weeks ago - how do you prove she had it within the past 90 days?

Went through Malaga airport few weeks back, they did a half hearted vaccine check, looked but didn't scan anything. They'd still plenty of staff allocated to it tho.

If you registered your daughters positive and got a text back I'd say that would be 100% in addition to the one vaccine jab.

I did register it, but seemed pointless i.e. I filled a form online to say she had a positive lateral flow, just thought it was a waste of time as what's stopping anybody from doing the same if they want to travel and haven't been vaccinated?

Is there an app that is needed to prove adults vaccine status?

Through Malaga this week.

Loads of staff to check and were stopping folk at random. However looked to be about 5pc of passengers being stopped.

Anyone know the best way to get from Charles DeGaulle airport to Eurodisney?

I'm told there's shuttle buses.
