Heading on 3 week honeymoon to vegas, LA, Hawaii & San Fran in July & can't wait!  ;D

and as for the options, if u not set on going a particular place I'd say def wait & book something last minute.
Check out travelzoo.com, I've signed up & every week they email a top 20 list on best sales/ last minute things, from B&b's to cruises. Its one of the them emailing can't help but look at just incase something is just to good to refuse.  :-\




We're thinking of LA,Las Vegas and maybe San Fran for our honeymoon next year.
Who did you book with ?

San Diego is unreal, loved it. Really liked La as well though was only briefly in it. Loved Vegas though 3 days max was more than enough for me.

I was in Thailand for 2 weeks in October on honeymoon so holiday this year is going to be a cheaper option!

However I can't wait, we are stickin my father-in-laws caravan onto the back of the car and going to hit Westport for a few days in July, then maybe head a bit further south for a day or 2, see how it goes! Most decent campsites around 22-26 euro a night...hope we get the weather :)

where you staying? for the best party area head out to pacific beach, street there (garnet) strip of bars leading down to the beach further up the same street further away from the beach theres the silver fox, used to do $2 drinks on thursdays (though thats 2 yrs ago) head out to coronado beautiful spot and deadly beach, ocean beach is pretty cool as well the 'hippy' area very chilled out, love the place lived there for a year and would go back in the morning, in the early stages of planning a trip next April - SD and vegas taking in Coachella music festival.

Who did you book with ?


Go to San Fran before LA, in fact go anywhere really before LA. Yosemite & San Diego well worth a visit...
Westmeath - Home of the Christy Ring Cup...

I'm just gonna go to Germany for a few days. I like to take regular short breaks throughout the year, rather than use up all my holiday time in one fell swoop.

where you for Ziggy, and when?
i am heading out to Munich next month for the annual Gaelic tournament and to catch up with the mates out there.
looking forward to a few steins in the bier gardens and hopefully get to play a bit of ball as well!!
