Glad your both home safe & sound. Hope the time you had there was enjoyable and relaxing before it was cut short.

Better to be safe than sorry although the problems do seem to be over now, but why take a chance. You did the right thing.

With age comes skills, it's called multi-tasking. I can laugh, cough, sneeze and pee all at the same time.

We felt for the hotel staff they also left hotel with us as no customers no job ,don't know how long it will take to get tourists back into Gambia ,but we have booked for next year. Gambia has had a rough couple of years, this year and two year's ago the Ebola scare . And it does rely heavily on Tourism.

Did you feel the food and the hygiene were OK, I am very prone to tummy upsets when abroad (even in France and Turkey!) but would like to find a warm destination for January ...

This is the only place I have been that I get constipated,but I do believe it's down to to the Julbrew beer . Food is good both Africa an and European .And as always Chinese and Indian available. And Climate is perfect Hot days and comfortable nights in January.

Do you choose a four-star hotel in a big resort, I truly have no ideal about Gambia or even Goa, which also seems popular. All information gratefully received!

We used to go to Goa went for 9 years , but before we went there we tried Gambia we were in The Atlantic hotel in Banjul lovely hotel but not a lot round about . So that's when we thought about Goa and we loved it. But then the Russians were starting to go in there droves ,the resort became dirty and it changed ,Visa was always changing price, size of photo so that's why we have started to go to Gambia .we go to Kololi in Gambia which has plenty of restaurants and bars Flight 6 hours , no visa same time zone as UK . Goa Hotels you can get 5 star but mostly 2star basic . Gambia about the same eating out ,drinking all cheaper in Goa . So both have positives and negatives . We used to stayed in Goa for four weeks ,( many expats from Altinkum spend winter in Goa) two weeks is enough for Gambia hope this helps
