Time to lighten up the post Xmas gloom and pitiful weather outside by looking forward to already booked holidays in 2012.

I will start (this is also a request for help dressed up as a holiday thread BTW) -

Last 2 weeks of June, villa booked in Gassin, South of France. Me, Mrs Dibnah, the 3 babies, my 23 year old daughter and her boyfriend :rolleyes:, the mother in law :rolleyes::rolleyes: and my parents :thumbs: all staying there.

Looking forward to it immensely.

All family are flying down to Nice or Toulon at various times during the 2 weeks to join us - but me, Mrs D and the babies are intending to drive down and take 2-3 days in each direction to add to the fun.

Anyone done the long run down with small kids before? Looking to stop over at Reims and Lyon but will happily veer off if interesting places to stay/see are recommended. I don't want to do more than 4-5 hours of driving on any one day.

Someone at work mentioned doing the Route Napoleon from Grenoble down to Cannes as a great driving road, but they clearly weren't aware that I will be in a heavily overloaded Volvo XC90.....

Anyone else already booked up and counting the days down to a nice break in the sun this summer?

We're off to Champoluc, Italy, on Saturday for a week. Can't wait - I haven't been skiing since December 2010.

Nothing booked yet, but looking to visit Geneva for a geeky couple of days including a visit to CERN if possible, and then hope to move on to the Italian lakes for a spell. In all honesty this maybe the last year I own the GTA so looking to make this a road trip :cool:

What!???!
Looking at things realistically. It has been 6 years of fun with the GTA, but I am looking for a new job and don't want to work in London any more so will likely be driving. That plus I am possibly going to change career, so it is unlikely I will be earning as much and able to keep it going.

Booked a load of Friday/Mondays this morning to ensure I can do the various summer beer festivals that look worth the effort, might have to start growing the beard soon...

Aside from that there may be a boating holiday in the offing, a week on the Farr Canal or similar.
