Where have you been/Where are you going?
« on: September 23, 2018, 03:43:25 PM »
Well lads I thought Iíd post a thread to see where everyone has been/is going on holiday?

Iíll start off, back in March we went out to Westendorf, Austria.

As some of you will know I am a snowboarder, been doing it a long time but up till this year have only been abroad once as my wife doesnít ski/snowboard so it wouldnít really have been fair.

This year it was time to change her car, to my amazement she decided she didnít want to change the car, she really likes it and after a quick check I realised itís only done 30k.

So I suggested we spend the money on a nice trip, a holiday. Some suggestions were to go watch a MotoGP race, we particularly liked the idea of COTA, Austin, TX but a week is simply not enough to take in Austin and the race.

I left it to Louise to have a think and let me know if there was anything she really wanted to see/do. After about a week she came to me and said ĎI think Iíd like to learn to skií so I started checking out to see where we could go and she could get ski lessons and I could go ride my board, eventually settling on Westendorf. It was awesome, I said before we went out it didnít matter if she didnít take to skiing long term as long as she enjoyed the week away.

It went better than I could ever have imagined, Lou loved skiing, her instructor was brilliant and she really made some good progress. So much so that we have already booked to go out to Zell Am See, Austria next February with 6 of our friends. Canít wait it will be brilliant, Lou will be at ski Schule most of the week but we will be altogether in the evenings and will meeet some lunchtimes. For the more advanced in the group the Kitzstienhorn at Kaprun has some of the best off piste free ride terrain in Austria and I personally canít wait.

So what have you guys been up to, or what have you planned?
Springers:- SMK VXS19 - 18 GRT3 trigger & HW97k V-Glide
PCP's:- Uncle Barry's Daystate Mk3 (FAC), BSA Superten & AA S510

Sounds great!

I've only skied once; when I was about 15 I went to somewhere in Italy for a week with school. We had a great time. Loved it.

My 2018 has been ............. mixed.

I was advised in February that I'd be made redundant.

It took until the end of June for them to tell me that it would happen at the end of this month (September).

Between February and the end of June we've been to Tenerife, Ibiza and Bulgaria (a family holiday where I had to join my wife and daughters three days late as I was needed at work).

Sooooo ..... mid-July, after a good few uncertain months, when we returned from Bulgaria I started looking for a new job.

And booked a holiday for November in Tenerife.

About mid-August our customer realised they couldn't survive without my smiling face about the office so they offered me a job. To start next month (a fortnight today actually).

Which is good.

I'm taking the first week of October off between redundancy from my current employer and starting my new job.

So we've booked a holiday to Majorca.

Which is good.

And Christmas is coming. Enough said. I packed up and went to the pub.

I,m not jealous - much. Haven,t had a holiday for five years . The last time I spent a night in a German hospital after departing with my Yamaha. Always fancied skiing, but i,m too bloody old now.
