    Hey guys,

    I love traveling and I'm going to Hong Kong this year in December.

    Do you have any annual leave planned for this year? Already been somewhere?

    What's your favorite destination?

    Six days left and Mrs is pregnant so we won’t be going anywhere. I’m being sent to VMworld so I’ll get to Barcelona for a week and Sophia for a course for a week. I’ve not been yet but I’d love to go to our HQ in Palo Alto

    We came back from Madiera two weeks ago. What a beautiful country. Nice chilled holiday.
    Off to Cologne in December for the Christmas markets.

    Next year, a week in Italy, then 3 Weeks in New Zealand to see the in-laws for Christmas so that should be cool.

    2020, We are looking at Japan. Wife used to live there and I have always wanted to go. She is 40 in a few years so we may do India, Goa etc.

    I LOVE Vegas with a passion. Always wanted to goto Bora Bora.

    I plan to go to south east Asia.

    I have been to Japan, Nara is very nice, went to some Japanese gardens, Temples, a Shogun castle, Bullet Train, even got a personal tour of a museum and got to hold a 400 year old samurai sword.

    We loved Euro Disney too and also have one on the way taking us to three. Congratulations to you. My plans to never be rich are almost complete

    Sounds awesome. I wanted to do all of that for my 40th next year but new baby means that's out of the window, in a good way obvs. Don't know where I'll go now

    I work in a country that only gives 10 paid days off per year (Canada) and flights anywhere are super-expensive so sadly, no. Miss working in the UK when I could take a long weekend here and there for a random city break in Europe.

    10 days?! Woah I did not know that! Canada looks beautiful and I'm sure traveling around Canada is amazing. I've actually thought about applying for a working holiday visa there...

    If you just want the experience then go for it if you qualify. Your British money will stretch further over here. Just don't expect to land the same kind of jobs you get back home, as there is a lot of resistance by Canadian employers to hire "foreigners" (yes, even ones from another English-speaking First World country).

    Yeah I noticed that in Australia, UK we aren't allowed to give preference to British people but elsewhere its pretty standard.

    Berchtesgaden in southern Germany (just on the Austrian border) is absolutely brilliant. Crystal clear rivers etc and excellent roads for cycling. Yes I know it was Hitler's fave retreat, but don't let that put you off lolz

    On the contrary I expect Hitler had great taste.
