Holidays...

Unread postby Leon » Sun Oct 26, 2014 4:11 pm

So I am currently sat at Gatwick airport awaiting to take my first ever flight abroad at the age of 26...Yes that's right my first ever time abroad!!

I only got my first ever passport just before the summer this year and I'm really exciting I'm finally getting it of the country :D I am flying to the Algarve in Portugal with my fiancée and staying with her parents for a few days and flying back on Thursday!

So I won't be in game but I'll do my best to pop on the forums and if anyone needs me just drop me a PM.

Moving on...

I thought as I'm sharing my first holiday experience with you all, it would be nice to know when your first holiday was, where was it and what was it like going abroad for the first time...

Over to you.

Oh and I'll be sure to take plenty of pics with the INC postcards!!

I think my first time abroad was to Ibiza when I was around 6 - Remember enjoying it until I came down with a mystery illness that has me extremely ill for a year. Had to take daily injections and lost about 1.5 stone in weight, which at 6 years old ment I weighed basically nothing :/ Been to Algarve a few times, my nana has an apartment out there in Praia da Rocha, good times.
Rene is the best!!

Lol nice one Leon, i've been to the Algarve myself after i finished highschool.
it was high summer and the weather was 35C degree's.. had shitty sunscreen lotion....
i turned red like a lobster... so it turned pretty painful... my buddy's got some yoghurt and i covered myself in it and got some sleep ...... because of the heat from the burn the yoghurt dried out and could peel it off like a second skin, it was fine the next day and baked trough and trough.
i had my brown skin for 5 months :D

First holiday was to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic when i was 7
*sigh, my first holiday crush was the waitress in our hotel there* :mrgreen:

PS. Hope you have a great time outside of the UK :D

I had been abroad when I was 2. Can't remember anything about it.

Then to make things even better, the next time I went on a plane was with a group of 20 rugby lads who found out that it basically was my first time flying and thought it would be amusing to shake my seat consistently until we finally landed in Douglas, Isle of Man. (short 30 min hop over the Irish Sea)

My first proper flight (proper because it was so short and was in a plane that only seated 40), was a long-haul flight to South Africa (takes 12 hours). This again was a rugby tour, a rugby tour containing 38 lads. Although I felt a bit happier, I still wasn't the best flier. Again they found out and for 12 hours, I had water trickled down my back... they all said it was the air conditioning, knowing it wasn't but couldn't prove otherwise I thought it could have been. Until we reached Jo'burg (capital of SA), when I turned around just as one lad was unscrewing the cap on a bottle of water ready to be trickled down my back... 12 hours in a wet t shirt.
