Since we're coming up to the summer holidays, just wondering where people are going on holiday:

Why?
Would they recommend?

Meself & Mum is staying in a villa in Mucia, Costa Blanca SPAIN, nice two weeks before starting Uni. first time at this place, but would recommend the area of Costa Blanca - PLUS Terra Mitica (one of the biggest theme parks - like alton towers! WAHEY CANT WAIT!!!

So where's everyone else going? (Or would like to go!)

Going to go to america hopefully. Doing BUNAC for the summer as a camp councellor. Don't know if it'd be counted as a holiday but hopefully it should be fun.

Hope everyone has a nice holiday

I'm going to Nottingham, London, Devon, Dorset and Sussex. maybe even Cornwall at a pinch.

I'm probably going to Southern Cyprus just outside Limmasol in the foothills for my holidays. It will be secluded and cut off hopefully, I can't hack the clubs etc, it embarrasses me when I see Brits on holiday. I'll probably be going with parents and stay with friends.

If I don't I will probably work all holidays but probably go to either Reading or France for a bit. I'll probably go with my friends, except none of them would even consider Reading. Wusses.

I'd love to visit Pilton towards the end of June - however it's all dependant on getting a certain ticket...

On the other hand I'm also hoping to go on a few day trips to Cambridge (I've never been), Brighton, Bristol, Bath and possibly Oxford...it's so easy to ignore places that aren't that far away.

I'll probably find a weekend or two to pop up to Birmingham (godmother-ing), Derby (in-law family), Surrey and Liverpool (my family)

Wishing won't do anything, you have to send CV's and cover letters to EVERYBODY and ANYBODY. I only think i got my place at the BBC because I know the BBC Radio Light Entertainment's officer, Jon Simpson, Matthew Amaralliwalla...etc.etc.etc

Like I only got my work experience at News Internation because my mum's friend that she bumped into at an RAF luncheon thing's daughter was the head of Revolver.com in News International.

etc etc

You gotta go and make the contacts yourself!
