My husband and I travel mainly for holidays twice a year, and it usually is geared towards diving in warmer waters. I usually get my idea for a destination from fellow travellors, friends or interesting TV travel programmes. I have been misled by magazine articles on occasion and now make sure I have first hand advice. For my shorter break I watch the papers for out of season specials. My husband and I enjoy staying at places reflecting local character and although we occasionally splurge, we dont often stay at exclusive private resorts. We love lessor known hide aways ...but preferably with aircon, space and a pool! We tend to spend a lot on local cuisine. We dislike tour group AI hotels and places where fellow guests feel a need to "claim" or stake out their space with early morning beach towels or such like. We often travel on our own but also love travelling with friends
