Right now I should be staring up at the Croatian city of Pula’s magnificent Roman amphitheatre about to head inside and explore its ancient surrounds. Instead, 2020 had other ideas and I instead find myself staying ‘at home’ this summer and holidaying in the UK.
Let’s face things. We’ve all been cooped up for weeks on end worrying about the virus and when we are finally let out we want to escape our homes; our comfort for the last few months that might have started to feel a little restrictive. The problem? The usual Summer holiday abroad we might have planned is definitely now in turmoil and maybe a few people who never holiday in the UK are quivering with despair as to what they might do. Can they be bothered by the British weather? What can you even do on a British holiday?
