Q. I'm keen to visit Punta del Este and/or Montevideo in Uruguay, ideally as a package holiday. But I can't find any operators that do it. And even if I could, would booking individual flights and accommodation be a better strategy? It seems amazing that BA still don't fly direct! Russ Williams, London

Travel is meant to broaden the mind, and my fashion resolution for 2010 – scratch that, the next decade – came to me en route to La Palma in December. While standing in the queue at Heathrow, I found myself having the most uncharitable thoughts about my fellow travellers' outfits. Ugg boots, ill-fitting combats, overly distressed jeans... it was as if the fashion crimes of the Noughties were all going on a package holiday together. It reminded me of a remark the late, dapper-dressing Tony Wilson once made to me, about how Las Vegas airport was one of the most soul-destroying places he'd ever been, thanks to the parade of shapeless tracksuits.
