When I was little, I used to watch the holiday programmes about foreign lands and get wanderlust. My dad used to say that exotic places weren't for the likes of us. When my other half had a heart attack, out of the blue at the age of 40, we changed our perspective on life. We have no kids, so now we spend what we can, having a good holiday. When the weather is good, a week in a caravan in cornwall can be magical. In fact, when the weather is good, a week in the garden can be brilliant.
My dad could have written the definitive book on how to go on holiday and spend very little. He seemed to know every beach with free parking and no ice cream van.
