Looking forward to a holiday is one of the perks in life. Sunning yourself on soft sand, wandering through a historic little town picking up knick-knacks, indulging in local delicacies and strolling through the balmy evening air to enjoy a cocktail or two - perfect. This is what holidays are made for. The days are long and hot, and as laid-back or as action-packed as you want, depending on your preference. Sometimes, it doesn't necessarily matter where you travel to, which is one of the great advantages of living where we do. Pretty much any of the destinations, within a few hours' flight, can provide a top-notch holiday without breaking the bank. In addition to this if you manage to bag a bargain then you can either use the money you save as extra spending cash, or you can upgrade your accommodation for a sneaky bit of luxury.
