The shortest distance between two points is under construction.
To many people holidays are not voyages of discovery, but a ritual of reassurance.
A good holiday is one spent among people whose notions of time are vaguer than yours.

A vacation is like love - anticipated with pleasure, experienced with discomfort and remembered with nostalgia.
Very well said. That's all folks.
