Ahh summer holidays. The best memories from your childhood were always formed when you had time off school and the chance to do nothing for a few weeks. Doesn't change much as an adult.
If you can bear the temperatures, summer holiday packages to travel to Queensland are some of the best in Australia, with excellent accommodation and plenty to do. Even if the weather takes a turn for the worst, there are still half a dozen or so theme parks to spend the day in.
Florida has summer holidays to rival the Gold Coast, with large villas available to rent, water parks and tourist attractions as well as great beaches, sexy parties all over the state and some of the coolest bars in America.
For cheap holidays over summer, look at Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt which not only offers value bed and breakfast vacations but also throws in a two-day diving course giving you the experience to dive 18 metres anywhere in the world.
Want a story to tell? Well try the 86-day tour holiday deals from Beijing to Bali with travel on just about every conceivable form of transport, or grab a 4WD and hit Yukon in Canada – you're so far away from civilisation you'll need a satellite phone to call anyone.
These summer holidays sure beat sandcastles and sunburn from your childhood.
