Holidays with The Olds…

with 4 comments

Friday morning I am off on a very brief holiday to the ‘West Country‘.

My intinery:

And the best thing about it?

I’m going by coach

A coach full of old people

Yep this is a bone fide Old Person Holiday.  I’m accompanying my Aunt on this trip – she isn’t a pensioner by the way, she just thought this holiday was a bargain (and indeed it is – £130 inc travel, 2 nights bed breakfast & dinner in a hotel plus admission to Eden Project!).

I’ve never been away on a genuine old person holiday before, with a pile of old folk, and I don’t really know what to expect.   (Debauchery?  Decadence? Dominos?)

Anyway, I’m really looking forward to this trip – it’ll be great to have a break, and the bonus of travelling with a whole pile of elderly folk: there is no chance of us running out of travel sweets on the journey down…

  1. Lol – have a lovely time! We’re heading to Bath for the markets next weekend. Third time – that’s like a tradition, isn’t it? But we’re not going with travel sweets ;o)

  2. Heaven help you. You know what old people are like when they’re let out. 😀

    Have fun.

  3. “Debauchery? Decadence?…”

    I think dementia and dermatitis are probably closer to the mark 😉 x

  4. Well, when I went as a token “young man” on a similar gig they all drank too much gin, swore like fish wives, laughed like drains and made obscene suggestions to the coach driver.

    More fun than I’d expected.
