    Thanks
    T4OTB was good. Not sure I'd go again and the weather was rubbish but I enjoyed the experience.
    And yeah the summer camp was amazing. Its free aswell and I made so many friends there from all around the world. I went last year aswell but now I'm too old
    Typical british weather then

    Free really? Do you have to be able to speak spanish?

    It was such a waste of a summer (which is highly in contrast to my next two summer holidays).
    Oh? What did you do?

    Year 12 summer was spent in Reading Uni working on a pretty cool project basically helping someone do their PhD (I was also accepted into some 2 week course at Eton – yup, that Eton – but they cancelled it due to swine flu :rant:)

    Year 13 summer I managed to get a job in the City doing software testing and earned a lot of dosh

    Hopefully this summer is just as productive

    I agree, some of you need to let loose. Summer is the chance to have some time off and relax, you'll need it for when you get back to School!
