Will you be going on a summer holiday this year?

May 10, 2007 8:01am CST
Will you be taking a holiday this summer? is it something you always do in the summer or do you take any breaks during the year at all. I find the summer is great for going abroad or to the countryside or beach and always try to go usually i go away for a few days during the year as i like to travel and find it more interesting than just staying at home all the time i find i can even save money like this plus meet lots of interesting people and see new things. this year ill probably be going somewhere in europe again maybe spain as it is a great fun holiday place with lots of interesting cities and nightlife and culture and it can be very cheap to do this What will you be doing this summer? Where will you be going? or do you just prefer to stay where you are?

It is exciting to have such a trip. I used to travel a lot before the birht of my daughter. With the kids, it is in some degreee harder have such trip. my daughter prefer to play at playground or beach for a whole day, not walking for a long time, she can approximately walk for around 30 mins at most. I have to find another way to relex now. :)

it sounds nice where you live most people here are leaving to go on holidays by the beach maybe as they grow up youll have more opportunities to travel and go on family vacations

My summer vacation won't be on the beach, although I absolutely love just basking in the summer sun with a good book in hand. I have just gone down to the river last weekend but unfortunately, it started to rain so the water's cold. I'll try again in a few weeks. I am slated to go to New York in June and I am so excited about it. This will be my first time. I am hoping for a really wonderful time and go home with lots of pictures and souvenirs. I can't wait!

new york sounds great but i heard it gets very hot in summer and this summers supposed to be one of the hottest so be prepared take a hand fan or something because i heard ny is one of the hottest cities in the world for summers

I'll go to the see for two/three months. The place were I live in summer is very hot, damp and full of mosquitos so I have to escape!

My partner and I will probably have two breaks this year. We usually go camping so it is a cheap holiday for us and we chuck everything into the back of the car and just go. We plan on going to Cornwall in the West Country of England and also stop in Glastonbury and at Avebury for the Summer Solstice. We also plan to go to Whitby in North Yorkshire for the Goth Festival at the end of October.

Nope, we prefer not to stay where we are, when it comes to summer holiday we always try to visit other countries. Kinda nice to experience other culture, language, surrounding, etc. Ant this year my family been planning on to spend our summer holiday to visit my homeland to see my dad, sisters and other families. My husband probably can only stay for 3 weeks but me and my daughter will stay for about 2 months....aaaahhhh, can't wait......

Can't wait for school to end. Summer is the best season of the year. I have a lot of things planned out before me. A couple of trips around Europe and an amazing vaction where I can lay down on some beach and just listen to the waves. :) I guess it's a good break from all the stress that has heaped up throughout the year. Just can't wait! :)

i hope you have a good time yes id love to go to the beach and hang out sounds like a great idea going away is very good to take away stress and make a change of scenery

We do a lot of things in the summer but usually we will only camp in the summer time and only on the weekends. Instead of vacationing in the summer we prefer to go in the winter as it gets quite cold here in Canada. Heading to Florida in the middle of winter just seems to make the winter seem shorter. When we return there is usually only a few weeks of winter left. I like it.
11 May 07
yes i heard florida is a very nice place to go id like to go there i think that makes a great combination living somewhere for the summer and then moving somewhere hot for the winter i hope you have a good time in florida and i hope to visit canada some day

We usually try to take a break during the year. Usually we'd go around Easter, but with the financial situation this year, we decided to wait until School is out for the Summer, and head on up North a little way to go visit with our friend up there. She has a son who turns 3 this month, and my daughter absolutely adores him. My boys play rough and tumble with him and it all gets rowdy and noisy and chaotic, but boy do they sleep well! My kids love going to visit. The journey does take 8 hours, but that takes into account food stops and toilet stops, as well as pit stops for caffeine lol.
11 May 07
its great to live somewhere you can travel 8 hours sounds like a long drive but fun if youre going with family and what a better way to go on holiday with friends i hope you have a good time

I dream about going somewhere. I drool over cruises and long for the mountains. I will try to get a day away at the beach soon, maybe. But my current circumstances won't allow me to go away more than a day, so guess I'll be home this summer. I envy you going to Spain or anywhere in Europe. I love it there.
11 May 07
at least you live near the beach all that fresh air must be good for you yes a cruise must be nice and they have so many cruises in usa i always wanted to go to florida or hawaii or somewhere like that

We don't always go on vacation in the summer, but we usually take at least one longer vacation and a few shorter vacations each year. Mostly, it depends on how much vacation time I will have at work. My vacations in recent years have been to Seattle, with shorter trips to St. Louis, Chicago, and Atlanta.
11 May 07
what interesting places to visit id love to go to chicago as i heard they have a lot of music there and seattle too. yes its nice to take vacations during the year to make a change
