As you know, we just love our holidays and anything that takes us away from the dull UK climate makes us pretty happy and therefore we try and get 2 or 3 trips in each year. (We manage this by careful use of bank holidays built around our annual leave).
It's fair to say we have gone off flying a fair bit these days. The planes are just getting more and more uncomfortable as they cram more seats in without any thought of the passenger comfort. You either get kicked in the back all the time or have to listen to kids games playing continually. In recent years we have found ourselves taking more and more holidays in Europe using the ferry (usually Brittany Ferries). We treat the ferry as an extension of the actual holiday as invariably the ship has excellent facilities with good restaurants and nice cabins (excluding P&O who must have the worst food in the world). You can wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and after a great breakfast be ready for a nice drive through France to wherever you are headed.
That's not to say we don't fly, we just prefer the freedom of driving and going where we want to as we amble around.
