The perfect holiday

One of the questions I ask interviewees for my Going Places  feature is to describe how they would spend a perfect day on holiday.  Oddly enough, I’ve never answered that question myself.  Until now that is.  So far, my favourite holiday was one I had in Dubai but although I had lots of fun there, it wasn’t my dream holiday.

I love water so my dream holiday would involve the beach.  I hate just lying down doing nothing though so my perfect holiday would be in a place where there’s also lots to do like sight-seeing, an amusement park or quad-bike riding.  I’m not a shopping fan but no proper holiday of mine would be complete without buying something tourist-y to remind me of the place.

My perfect day on holiday would start with a big breakfast to fuel my (window) shopping and book-buying spree.  After lunch, I would spend an hour or so playing in the water at a beach then it would be time for a nap or a spot of TV watching to recharge myself.  The evening would be spent eating delicious food in a great restaurant then dancing late into the night.

What’s your idea of the perfect holiday?  What would you do?  Where would you go?  Tell us in the comments.
