Well Ah-Oh Those Sum-uh-mer Holidays.
Here's the truth about 'em. You work right up till the 23rd. You've got Christmas Eve and Christmas Day full to the brim with obligatory family commitments. Then of course, the inaugural, non-optional Boxing Day blowout. Consequently the following two days are spent sleeping 'til twelve just trying to recover from the week that was. Suddenly it's the 30th of December and what have you done? Nothing. You've wasted your holidays. Any plans you might have had for travel and adventures are now officially out of the question. Right?
Wrong. You don't have to hop a plane to Bali to get away. It only takes about 30 minutes to pack up a car and less than 5 minutes to convince a willing friend. No matter where you live, chances are there's somewhere relatively pleasant nearby. You've got to admit, we're pretty lucky like that in Australia. If you really have left it so late in the game that you're back to work tomorrow, why not check yourself into a hotel? Sun yourself by the pool, get pampered and enjoy your last moments of freedom without even leaving the CBD.
It's easy and to make it that little bit easier we've even packed your bag for you. Holiday style made simple.
Well what are you still doing here? Get going.
