Tenerife hosts one of the world's largest carnivals and the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is well worth planning ahead for - it's an extravaganza of sight, colour and sound that will be the highlight of your year!

The island of Hvar has long been a local favourite and you'll find this place full of hotels and idyllic snooze-in-the-sun spots. Hvar consistently ranks in the top 10 islands by Conde Nast Traveller magazine. The main town is in a fairy tale setting on the harbour and there's even a mediaeval castle above the town.
If you're travelling with kids, then the so-called Adriatic Riviera in Italy may be more your cup of tea. Lengthy stretches of golden sandy beach, rolling countryside dotted with castles and celebrated cuisine make the Adriatic Riviera a superb beach holiday destination.

Costa Dorada and the Canary Islands are ideal Spanish holiday locations.
One destination you should consider though is Barcelona. The Olympic city is spectacular; a cornucopia of architectural delight, excellent city beaches and exquisite food. This is a real soak up the atmosphere kind of town and for a week or two you can live like the Spanish - sangria, tapas, sleeping in and more. Explore Gaudi's amazing buildings, and in particular the Sagrada Familia which is breathtaking and grotesque by turns. Wander your way down one of the most famous boulevards in the world, La Rambla. Gorge on pintxos, platters of bite-sized food served on bread (a Basque version of tapas), with a toothpick. And if you love sweets, Barcelona has several treats in store for you! For fancy chocolates in glamorous packaging, head to Escribà; and for boiled sweets visit Papabubble, where you can see the sugary delights being rolled in front of your eyes.
See; cheap holidays abroad don't have to be dull - you can have as much adventure, or as little - as you like. And it's all cheap!
