So about 100 miles.
Unless you count cub camp when I was 8, in which case about ten miles.
I spent 2 nights in Manchester hotels, so yeah about 3 miles. 2 different hotels as well, so I actually went travelling without recourse to anything more than a Magic Bus.
you can still smoke in the rooms there. is that actually legal?
This was years ago when it was still common practise for bus drivers in Manchester to smoke on the job.
We stayed at some really shit travel lodge type affair for night 1, then we decided that that was a bit rubbish so we went for the Midland on night 2. Ah, having a gf with a massive inheritance *looks wistfully into the distance*
did you see the old letters and drawings on the walls?
did you see the amazing tiles that were hidden during the war then uncovered again?
did you *a billion other questions*
I love running around there when I'm bored, I got into the presidential suite once. Cameron made them change the wallpaper and buy a new table for that room when he stayed, what a fucking db.
just turned up riotously drunk and scruffy looking and took great pleasure in showing a snooty attendant our room key when he questioned us (what a db), went to the bar in my dressing gown, did some heavy petting in the lift and sat on the windowsill drinking champagne.
(i wasnt there)
this feels a bit weird
Probably the 30 miles from Bristol to Center Parcs Longleat.

so however many miles that is. I have no idea.
when his parents went away on holiday. That was like a lads holiday except we were in my mates house just down the road rather than Ayia Napa.
If you're talking actual holidays holidays then like, the Kent coast or something when I was a kid?
It was ace. I got massively shat on by a seagull.

Went camping for a few nights in Stourport a few weeks back if that counts? 30 miles.
about 50 miles away from home (West Wittering). Purely because we are not sure how it will go with a 2 yr old and 8 month old, so need to be able to get home quick if necessary! Just waiting for some good weather . . .

I've stayed in hotels close to home for business. I guess in real terms it's probably about an hours drive away to a cottage we rented out for a weekend a few years back. By christ I need some sunshine this year though...
