We’re going on our holidays in June this year, it looks like. I’ve been searching around for the best cheap holidays we can find on the internet, as times are pretty tight financially. I haven’t really been able to afford many nice treats for the family since I was made redundant, and I’m finding it so difficult to get a job. The thing is, it’s really impossible for everyone at the moment, not just us in the creative industries. There’s a real slump in terms of opportunities and employment offers in the media sector, so I’m finding it really hard to find something new.
In the meantime, however, we’re living off our savings, and have still got plenty from my grand-father’s inheritance money to be able to live comfortably for at least another year, so there’s no need for us to be panicking just yet.
There are, so far, two destinations which are emerging as possible options for us; Cyprus and Lanzarote. Cyprus holidays are something which I’ve been really keen on for a number of years, as I’m a bit of a mythology and history nut and I would really enjoy visiting all the great sites of mythological interest that the area has to offer.
On the other hand, Lanzarote holidays are also very fun – we’ve been there twice before, and both times we’ve had a truly excellent holiday. The last time we went there was about three years ago, which was the highlight of that year, so that could be fun too. I’ll be discussing it with the family this weekend, so hopefully we’ll have made a decision soon.
