already thinking about your next break? Give the planet a break at the same time by trying reduce the environmental impact of your little escape. Have a look at our holidays page for some suggestions.
Magazines, brochures, flyers, internet deals, and ideas from friends and family have poured through the door, each one describing the perfect activities to do. Stages, day trips, the beach, castles and zoos fill the recesses of your mind with thoughts of what is perfect for summer learning and fun. What to do, what to do?

Oh, and lest it be forget, the dawning of the more ecologically conscious day tripper/traveller has arrived on your doorstep to add to the complexity of summer planning. This is a tall order to be filled for any family if old planning/mapping techniques are followed. It is time to bring out your family’s internal GPS/SatNav systems and navigate your way to the perfect summer. Step back, sit down and breathe gently.
