If you could go somewhere with Winter sun (April – avoiding Easter) within a 2-3 hour flight of Manchester (UK) where would you go?
This would be for me and my grandmother (the one I visited in January), so nowhere with giant hills and no buses!
It needs to be somewhere with good/extensive public transport.
I know a few words of Spanish and a few phrases in French, but no Portuguese. I’m sure I’d be able to pick up a few essential phrases before I go, so that’s not too much of a problem. I’m kind of ruling out Northern/Eastern Europe because, you know, no sun!
So far I’ve quickly looked at Barcelona, Mallorca, Southern France, Corsica or maybe Malta (but I’ve already been there, so maybe not!). I’m after personal experiences (where you loved, where you didn’t, not necessarily limited to the places I’ve picked out) or places you want to go, but haven’t. I’m also open to tour operator/airline/hotel recommendations.
