Messing about on the river

What better way to spend an English summer (or at least a small part of it...) than messing about on the glorious river/canal networks that we are lucky enough to have in this country? We decided to explore the beautiful Basingstoke canal network for a weekend of camping on the water - yes you guessed it Narrowboat living.

Myconian bliss

One of the famous Mykonos windmills
Location: Greece

Famous for: windmills, pelicans, beautiful sandy beaches, trendy bars, gay nightlife and a constant sea breeze.

When to go: The Island opens in May and closes in October, and you will find it quiter at either nd of the season, whilst still glorious weather-wise (just take a light sweater for the evening at these times). Any other part of the season is very warm and gets increasingly busy as the months progress.

Prague City break

Astronomical Clock – The Old Town Square
Location: Czech Republic

Famous for: Beautiful Architecture, Jewish Heritage, fences full of padlocks (to name but a few things).

When to go: Anytime, but Winter is picture postcard stuff. I think November to February is best if you want to try to experience snow on the ground.
