MOST of us carry around a mental list of places we want to go. But what about the destinations we would prefer to avoid, even if someone offered us a free trip? An unofficial and limited survey put the Balearic islands at the top of the list (Majorca is the chosen destination for 23 per cent of all British package-holidaymakers which may, paradoxically, explain its unpopularity), closely followed by the Canaries, Poland and Singapore. Albania, surprisingly, was not among the nominations.

Where are the places at the bottom of your holiday list? Send your worst three, with a brief reason why you never want to go there, to: No Way, The Independent, 40 City Road, London EC1Y 2DB. A bottle of Albanian brandy goes to the person who supplies the most entertaining selection, and justification.
