What is a holiday?
People enjoy their holidays in many different ways. Some people like to travel. Others like to go camping. Other people like to stay at home and relax. Everyone has different ideas about what makes a perfect holiday. I thought about what I like to do on a holiday. My perfect travel holiday is when I experience something special. Things like tasting food at markets. Or seeing art in museums or galleries.

A popular summer holiday destination.
It is now the holiday season. A holiday for many people means time off work. For others a holiday is time that is free from things such as medical appointments and mundane tasks.
I am planning a trip to Europe next year. There are so many interesting places to see in Europe. Friends ask how will I spend my time there. I tell them I never write a list of what I like to see and do on a holiday.
For some people a holiday means not leaving home. They enjoy relaxing at home and doing things around the house. I know some people who like to play extreme sports on their holidays. Other people just like to lie around a pool or by the beach. Some friends like to go camping in the outback. Everyone is different. For me a holiday is often about going away. It is about planned travelling.
I like to try local foods that are different to the food I eat at home. I especially like food markets. I also enjoy visiting vineyards and wineries.
There are so many things to see and do when you visit a new place. I enjoy visiting art galleries and museums. Using my scooter I can also get around to look at architecture.
I like to learn and experience other cultures. I like to meet people. I enjoy learning interesting facts and stories.
Holidays at home
Sometimes I spend my holidays at home. I like to sit and enjoy great coffee. I also like to listen to music with emotion. I also visit parks and gardens because I enjoy being out in nature.
