Advantages KEEPS ME GOING THINKING ABOUT WARMER DAYS
Disadvantages NOT ENOUGH TIME AND MONEY TO SEE EVERYWHERE
oh I'm excited, this is my favourite pastime, travelling. don't get me wrong, I haven't travelled the world or gone back packing or even gone somewhere non touristy, but I have been abroad quite a lot of times and get depressed if I can't afford to. When I'm at work even though I work in the holiday industry, I picture myself somewhere warm and sunny, and it keeps me going when I'm feeling sad. I work for Blakes Boating in the uk, and it gives me great pleasure to book those boating holidays for the people who might have saved up all year for their special holiday. Thanks for bringing this discussion up, and here's my shot at it.*~*QUESTION *~*
How many times a year do you travel?*~* ANSWER *~*
For how long do you go away
Usually we have one week in March, one week in June, then two weeks in either Sept or October when it's cheaper. where I work I get two free weeks a year in a timeshare property so that helps with the accomodation costs, then we just pay for our flights. my husband would like us to go somewhere for three weeeks, but I wouldn't as the rest of the year I would only have one week left for the whole year. Also I think 2 weeks is enough to be away. I like to getaway, enjoy the holiday, then go home. I feel as though I am missing something if I'm away too long. I miss my creature comforts at home. after a week of being home though, I want to go back on holiday again.
Do you stay in your home country or do you go abroad?*~* ANSWER *~*
We always go abroad, mainly because I don't feel as though I am on holiday unless I get on a plane. Since meeting my husband 10 years ago, he hadn't been abroad before, he has now got the bug for it. He wouldn't consider going in this country unless we were promised good weather. Another thing is he likes cycling, so everywhere we go except for the USA, he takes his bike. The car drivers are much more considerate abroad for cyclists, so he feels happier abroad in somewhere like Spain. We do take shortbreaks sometimes in this country. About four times a year we book into a Hotel in a city and have a good night out, then stay in a hotel then come home. We always have gone in some Cottages in the UK, which I can get from work. Great perks I get don't I?
Do you organise your holidays yourself or do you go to a travel agency?*~* ANSWER *~*
For the last 2 years or so, I have been using the internet and booking private apartments, or getting them from work. It's not a Travel agency as such where I work, as we don't do holidays abroad, but I do have contacts.
