Well, if you haven't booked your summer holiday up yet, here's a few suggestions.
I can heartily recommend Malta as an ideal seaside destination with plenty of history and culture thrown in too. If you fancy travelling round a fascinating European country that won't cost a fortune, why not try Bulgaria? Brussels is always a great place for a short-city break, especially if you don't fancy queueing up at the shopping malls which in Britain go under the name of 'airports'. If you prefer not to leave Britain at all, why not a coach holiday to the beautiful Scottish Highlands? If you do feel like travelling a little further afield and trying something really adventurous, how about checking out Mexico City? The brilliant anti-war blogger, The Exile can point you in the right direction!
