"Carlo, do you still want to go on holiday in September?"
"Well, yes, I thought we'd decided on Greece?"
I sighed. "But I don't see the point in going to a place similar to here and sitting on the beach all day. Thats what we do at home!" The drawbacks of living in a beach resort is that beach holidays are not so exciting anymore.
"Well lets go somewhere else. Where would you like to go?" He sat back and looked at me expectantly.
"I know! Marrakesh! It's nowhere near a beach, perfect."
"Skye would be bored. So would I, far too much shopping...no."
"Well what would you like to do then?" I asked him, presuming he'd push for Greece. I was wrong.
"Oh, actually I'd like to spend five days canoeing southwards down the coast to see how far I get. I've already bought a beach tent to sleep in that I can take with me and when I'm finished you can borrow a car with a roof rack and drive down to pick me up!"
It sounded like he had it already figured out and I know that once he has an idea like this in his head he won't be happy until he has done it.
"Ok then, you do that then and I'll go to England in October when you're really busy at work. So are you still up for a big holiday this winter or do you want to canoe round the world?"
"Don't worry, we're definitely going away this winter...but where?"
"Well, Dan suggested South Africa, Dad suggested Sri Lanka and everyone in town says we should go to Thailand. I don't know, everyone here goes to Thailand, it'd be nice to see what they're all talking about, but it would be nice to do something different too, I can't decide.."
Any bright ideas?
