I like various types of holiday: I take my own car and drive on the Continent for the scenery and interesting towns; further afield in Europe I fly and hire a car; I also take city breaks relying on public transport. I visit places in the UK, usually at short notice, especially the NE and Cornwall and places in between. When I go abroad I usually go somewhere warm. I always learn at least a few phrases in the local language and sample local food and drink.
