We visited over the Christmas/New Year's holiday. Four days of torrential rain storms greeted us. My boyfriend hadn't been on a beach holiday in years, later asking me if I checked the weather report before booking the trip (oops, hello monsoon season).

Where to go on holiday this year? It's tempting to simply reply: anywhere hot. But one of the key factors in your decision should be exchange rates.

We've all been there at some stage, haven't we? You're desperately in need of a holiday (a week in Kos or maybe something more exotic) but your partner/mates are far too busy with their hectic work lives. So what do you do?
