Why do you go away on holiday?
- a change
- a challenge
- an adventure
- to see somewhere new
- to find out about somewhere
- to get away from your usual routine
- to meet someone - either known or unknown
I ask, because someone I know told me yesterday that there is no point in his going away because when he gets there, he is there. i.e. he would like to go away on holiday to get away from himself. He would like a rest from being himself. He'd like to be someone else for a while, and maybe, he said, it will be possible to do that in the future.
