Maybe you're doing a course, staying over at a friend's or simply hanging at home?

"I'm certainly not going camping this year. A few years ago we went camping in Bude, but it was at the time when there was heavy flooding, gales and constant rain. It was disappointing because we were going to stay for 13 days but instead we got so fed up with the weather we went home on the third afternoon. I think the best holidays are when you can just relax and be lazy for once! I love holidays!!"
