When I was going to school I loved
Geography and I think that is the
reason I love travelling today. I decided
then that at one time in my life I would
climb the highest mountain in the
world so this is what I want to do. I
don't plan to go on my own, though.
My greatest love is the mountains and
I am looking for a holiday which is
challenging. If I find any good rivers on
my way I might even go rafting or
canoeing now and again.
My sister went to Chania two years
ago and said it was the best holiday
she ever had. She said she loved the
peace and quiet of the small fishing vil-
lage where she was staying. It was just
outside the town and although at times
it was a bit too quiet, she felt that there
was never any risk and the children
were always safe and sound. She
especially loved the way all meals were
prepared on time in the hotel, and two
out of every three meals had fish.
A major consideration for me is the weather. Last year I
went to New Zealand and I was sick and tired of the
weather. It rained every day, so never again! It was so
boring! I work so hard all the year that when I go on
holiday, I need to be able to laze around and relax. I do
not want to take any tours or see the sights, and I don't
want to sunbathe either. I just want to hang out on a
warm sunny beach. I intend to have a good time this
year so perhaps the Med is my best bet.
My father worked on a ship when I was young
and from time to time he took me on board when he went on a trip somewhere in the
Mediterranean. I loved waking up bright and
early each day and smelling the ocean breeze.
In fact, anyone would. I enjoyed it so much and
made a promise to myself to see the world
when I grew up. At the moment I am still
studying but when I finish next month I intend to
go somewhere really exotic. Of course I can't
afford an expensive hotel so I plan to stay in bed
and breakfast.
My husband and I are looking for a relaxing holiday
with style as we want to spend some quality time
with each other. We do not want the hustle and
bustle of fast city life and the need to worry all the
time about rushing to get from place to place. So,
our holiday preference is a trip by ship which will
allow us to take in lots of historical sights and one
of the Seven Wonders of the World. In fact we
believe that going sightseeing is the most
wonderful thing about our holidays. Some time
ago, we were thinking of a Caribbean cruise but
then we changed our minds and decided that it
may not be what we wanted.
