As you know, we just love taking 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).
In the past we tended to fly a lot, going to Greek islands in particular, but nowadays the effort of flying can make it a pretty miserable experience. The planes these days are so crowded with no sensible seat space and often full of chav behaviour we have found ourselves taking more and more holidays in Europe using the ferry. We treat the ferry as an extension of the actual holiday as invariably the ship has excellent facilities with good restaurants and nice cabins. 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.
