Holidays Where To Go by:Sylvia White
The holiday season is almost upon us with people wondering where to go to spend thathard earned money they have been saving all year for this occasion.
Thoughts of holidays and where to go can occupy you happily for many an hour as you try to decide on your destination.
Cost can play a big part in your decision, if you are on a low budget then distance can be a factor, although with all the low cost flights these days its not as hard as it used to be. Hotels come in all price ranges from one star to five stars and then you can decide on bed and breakfast, half board or full board.
All inclusive holidays are great if you have children as they can wallow in ice cream and cold drinks if they want to. They may seem expensive but once there you don't have to spend a penny so weigh up what your usual holiday would cost and the amount of spending money needed and compare costs.
Many people prefer to cater for themselves so holiday flats are a big favourite; you have a choice of going out for your meals or eating in.
Most holiday resorts, especially abroad always have markets where you can buy the finest home grown vegetables and salads, also delicious fruits so it is easy to have a few meals in your flat.
Many people yearn for a holiday destination that is different to the usual run of the mill; they search all the holiday brochures and the online holiday companies.
Here is one holiday destination that I have never heard mention in the brochures or online, we spent two holidays here and it was fantastic.
Swaziland is a small country that borders South Africa. It is many years since we visited Swaziland but I have never forgotten it.
You cross the border and instantly it is like being in another world, it was mud roads and along the roads were the little straw huts where the natives lived. As we passed they all came out calling and waving, they are a very friendly people.
The first time we went camping and stayed in a wonderful place it was called Paradise Park. Banana and avocado trees grew all around it was fantastic.
I am very fair skinned so normally I just go red in the sun but that holiday I was completely brown when we went home.
I am sure there must be information online about Swaziland I have not looked, but if you want a holiday with a difference there it is. I am assuming of course that it hasn't changed too much since we went.
Camping can be a cheap alternative for a holiday if your budget is really low, there is usually a camping shop in your nearest town where you rent all the equipment you need including the tents. The kids will love it as it like an adventure to them, but you just have to pray that you have good weather.
A caravan holiday used to be a cheap option, but prices have risen drastically especially during the school holidays.
In the school holiday times families are charged almost treble what it cost at any other time no matter where they intend to holiday, it can be so cruel for those who can't afford to pay these prices.
House swapping could be the answer, you just swap house with someone else for a week or fortnight. Your house doesn't have to be palace just as long as it is clean and tidy with all the mod cons.
