As I am heading out for a holiday this evening, and I have nothing in my mind, I thought I would share a couple of vaguely relevant quotes on the subject.

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 should be just long enough that you're boss misses you, and not long enough for him to discover how well he can get along without you.

The rainy days a man saves for usually seem to arrive during his vacation.

Those that say you can't take it with you never saw a car packed for a vacation trip.

Vacation is what you take when you can't take what you've been taking any longer.

On vacations: We hit the sunny beaches where we occupy ourselves keeping the sun off our skin, the saltwater off our bodies, and the sand out of our belongings.

A vacation is like love - anticipated with pleasure, experienced with discomfort and remembered with nostalgia.

Very well said. That's all folks.

Ahhh - so holiday is a euphemism for "The council have moved us on again" ?? ;-) Enjoy your 'vannin'
