Culture Vulture, Beach Bum or Adrenaline Junkie?

City Break CheapAre you a culture vulture, a beach bum or an adrenaline junkie?

Fancy a romantic city break to Paris, or maybe you would prefer a quick getaway to the peaceful mountains close to Granada?  If neither of them are your cup of tea, and you are more beach bum than culture vulture, then you might want to look for a last-minute beach holiday bargain.  Nowadays, getting away doesn’t cost an arm and leg.  There are tons of websites and no frills airlines offering you the chance to forget your daily problems and concentrate on chilling out and recharging your batteries.  Finally, it has to be said, if you don’t like going on holiday, then you need to seek medical attention or possibly book an appointment with a psychologist.


Janette backpackingBackpacking is a form of low-cost, independent international travel. It includes the use of a backpack that is easily carried for long distances or long periods of time; the use of public transport; staying in inexpensive lodging such as youth hostels; and finally, backpacking is usually longer than a mainstream two week holiday. Backpackers are usually interested in meeting locals as well as seeing the sights.

When I was younger I was a very keen backpacker and although myself and my sister did go backpacking a few years ago, without a shadow of a doubt, when my sister pampered me by booking us into some 5 star hotels, I have to admit that I was like a kid in a sweet shop running around touching and licking everything. I was on cloud 9, and, of course, I did attempt to steal the bathrobes, the slippers, the toiletries, the bedside lamp, the flat screen TV, the rechargers, the sexy doormen but, unfortunately, I was not successful!

Beach Bum

beach-bumA beach bum is a type of person who is keen on beach holidays, sunbathing and hanging out at the beach doing absolutely nothing. Is this you? Or, does this type of relaxation drive you nuts?

Personally speaking I can spend hours and days at the beach: drinking cold beer, playing beach tennis and dancing to summer tunes. Furthermore, there really is nothing more cathartic than listening to the motion of the ocean. Yes, it’s great to live on the south coast of Spain.
