yeah, you have to choose your ski resort carefully. there's nothing worse than a busy resot full of 5 year olds whizzing past you and rubbish slopes. you need to be able to hear absalute silence and feel like you have the entire alps to yourself to get that kind of contemplative experience.

Yeah Italy is amazing, especially if you go to the pizza places in the non-touristy areas. I would choose skiing over the sun - you can't beat skiing down a quiet mountain looking at the views in the sun with that lovely feeling of breathing in the cool fresh air. Having said that if you go to a greek island and swim in the clear warm seas looking with amazing fish swimming underneath you......(sigh I wish i was there now) Monte-Carlo was one of the wierdest places I have ever visited. What an incredibly strange yet amazing place!!

solution- go skiing in the sun. you get the best tan ever in the snow + last year i didn't see a single cloud (well actually there was this little pathetic whisp on the last day), btu it snowed at night. best conditions i've ever been in. but i've never had a skiing holiday where i havem't coem back a bit brown (although i did have one that was blizzrdy for a couple of days which can be nasty if you lose your confidence).

i've just come back form the canary islands and i've decided i want a bit of winter sun every year! although next year i'll be having a really cold christmas with my brother in america.

You should work on commission from the ski resorts, you've persuaded me anyway

Slightly different from a fortnight in the Costa Del Sol. Nice to see some variety.

yes. Why would you go on holiday just for the climate?

Tinykates, you have excellent taste. That is exactly what I'd say.

My plane had to make an emergency landing in Iceland once and it seemed pretty dull from what I saw. It took about half an hour to walk around Reykjavik and see everything worth seeing.

its just the fact that summers in england aren't very hot and i'm really sensitive towards the cold, so i always like to prefer to go somewhere hot...of course it would depend on the place too, not solely on climate

i'm just totally addicted- there is a real buzz skiing on a sunny day in great snow going really fast. it's a great sensation being in such cold in the sun. garr, i've got myself wanting to go again- i not going at all this year and i'm gutted. i love any kinda sport like that- my latest enthusiasm is scuba diving (totally breathtaking).

Not really. It was just a really great experience - i think evryone should go once if they can. I went with my boyfriend at Christmas so it was really romantic too. The coldest it got was -19 which was ok as long as we weren't outside for too long. If you feel like that maybe just go for a short time. I went for a week, which was just about right for me.

I went to Sydney and then Melbourne. The capital city, Canberra, isn't particularly impressive though, so I wouldn't start there.

No, not entirely but it has 2 play a factor doesn't it....would YOU go on holiday somewhere if you knew you were gonna get swept away by a tsunami? U wouldn't go somewhere if you knew it 'drizzled' most days would you.....i was just saying....hot climates appeal 2 me more

Went to Corfu last summer, stayed in a totally uncommercialised quiet area with quiet beaches and lovely tavernas overlooking the sea. 10 minutes drive by car along the coast and we were in the middle of a mad partying resort with more bars/clubs than you could count. Half an hours drive into the centre of the island and we could eat in a tiny taverna in a ghost town in the middle of nowhere of visit an ancient monestry at the top of a moutain (with a giant phone mast built over the top of it!!!!). The contrast was amazing!!
