Thai Meal @ Chilli Banana, Knutsford

Chilli Banana Thai Restaurant

Hi ladies, Join us at this fab Thai restaurant on Knutsford's lovely main high street to meet other members of our group and our sister group Travel Queen Cheshire! Find out about upcoming trips and where people would like to travel to, while we enjoy delicious Thai food and drinks!

We have a table booked with just 8 places available (open to both groups) so please only accept the invitation if you can definitely make it, or update your status if something comes up so that somebody else can join us if you can't.

Barcelona Planning Meet Up @ The Met Pub, West Didsbury

Hi ladies, This meet up event is for those interested in the 3 night Barcelona city break planned for Friday 16 - Monday 19 August this year, and you can see the full event description for the trip here: http://meetu.ps/e/GFYmM/F1fbc/f As outlined in the link above, I've already worked out an outline plan but availability and exact prices will fluctuate until we have a group ready to book, so the plan is to use this meet up event at the Met in Didsbury to finalise all details and the hotel, meet other women interesting in going on the trip and to get it booked! There is free parking and a large car park at the Met which isn't far from the M60 so hopefully a fairly central location for everyone. Its entirely up to you if you just have a drink or some food too. Hope to see you there and please feel free to comment on the Barcelona trip (one the link above) in the meantime as the whole point is to be ready to book something by the time this event comes around :-) Mel x

Barcelona City Break!



Fancy a 3 night city break in beautiful Barcelona ladies? Barcelona is a fab place to visit that has the best of both worlds. Its bustling city has amazing architecture including the famous Gaudi's Cathedral, lively Spanish bars and restaurants including those on the famous Las Ramblas avenue and many grand plazas, and fantastic outdoor food and drink markets such as famous Boqueria, just off Las Ramblas. Then when you need a break from the city you can head to the beach or a restaurant overlooking the ocean, as Barcelona is right on Spain's sunny North East coast. I've found some hotels in great locations either right on the famous Las Ramblas street in the heart of the city or a little further out in quieter locations with more facilities like a swimming pool, and can organise this 3 night package including flights from Manchester and accommodation for around £400pp based on 2 people sharing a room. Final prices will depend on how many people go and the best deal we can get based on availability when everyone is ready to book, as obviously availability changes all the time. It will be a £60 deposit to book and the balance paid about 12 weeks before, which falls around mid May. Flights are from Manchester direct to Barcelona as below: Friday 16 August: Depart Manchester 8am Arrive Barcelona 11.30am local time (inc. +1 hour time difference) Monday 19 August: Depart Barcelona 1.35pm Arrive Manchester 3.15pm UK time Lots of women within our group have told me they're interested in short, European city breaks and Barcelona is a very popular option with something for everyone that isn't too expensive! :-) Please note this isn't an 'official Travel Queen group tour', like the 14 night Thailand Adventure and 10 night Croatia Adventure tours that I'm currently running. This means that as much as I'd love to, I won't be accompanying you as the group leader on this Barcelona city break, to organise set activities and take care of everything during the trip, and I won't have personally tried and tested the hotel before, as I do on all my official Travel Queen group tours. I have arranged a meet up in the UK specifically for those interested in going on the trip (see here: http://meetu.ps/e/GFYSx/F1fbc/f), and at this event we can finalise the details, get to know others before you go and get the trip booked. I have been to Barcelona and loved it, so based on what people are interested in doing I'll then provide some itinerary options for the trip with some suggestions to get you started, then you can pick and choose what you would like to do when you are there. If you have any questions please just comment below so other women in the group can see the questions and answers too! And please only accept the invitation to this trip if you're seriously interested in going, as other members like to see who is thinking of going and how many people :-). Mel x
