Hello, it’s Lucy from Europe Today here – later in the week we’ll be thinking about holidays, and we want to hear from you if you’ve decided to stay closer to home during your summer break.
There’s been a lot of talk this summer about people going on holiday nearer home because of the recession – Germans have been heading to the north coast instead of Majorca, British tourist boards are trying to encourage people to go to Cornwall instead of the Caribbean, and Parisians are pretty much staying at home
Have you been on holiday nearer home this year? Has a lack of funds made you appreciate previously undiscovered places in your country? Have you encouraged other people to do the same? Was your holiday at home a disaster? Or do you think it’s always best to explore other countries to completely get away from the rat race?
