Nobody likes unexpected bills. They can completely throw you off balance. When the bill is substantial, they do a lot more than upsetting your plan. They can dramatically affect your financial stability.
Last Christmas I brought my family to get away from the cold winter to relax in the generous warm sunshine in beautiful Spanish islands of Lanzarote which is about 4 hours flight from Glasgow Scotland. Lanzarote is actually in the African continent but still part of the EU. I highly recommend the place for young family seeking a place to chill, self-cater and plenty of beaches to explore in the winter period.
