108 holidays in 10 years

I counted up how many foreign holidays I had and it’s 108 in 10 years. How is this possible or affordable? Well, with 30 days of work leave and 10 public holidays and with a focus on weekend breaks it is very possible. That’s nearly 4 days of leave a month. Also, Easter and May are great times to go if you build in leave with public holidays. A couple of days around a bank holiday weekend means cheaper flights and maybe a 5-day break. At Easter 4 days leave (the 4 before good Friday or after Easter Monday give you 10 days away). A half day also offers opportunities as catching a flight on Thursday afternoon can mean dining out in Spain at night.

All this costs money but again choosing the right time means I pay between £20 and £50 return. Holidaying in winter says fuel costs and in December and January flights can be as low as £10 return. Accommodation in 2-star hotels, eating out at the cheaper lunchtimes and taking local buses instead of airport transfers cuts costs. Read elsewhere for the detail.
