The vibe from abroad: Where will the Brits be travelling in 2011?

What a year for travel 2010 has been; it began with the unprecedented closure of European airspace when that Icelandic volcano erupted, strikes by airline staff, the collapse of tour operators and subsequent vulnerability of independent and uninsured travellers, and came to a pitiful year-end when some major European airports were exposed for the weak link they are in the international travel chain when the weather gets bad.
