We called it going on holiday here in Scotland. Back in the day we got eight weeks holiday from school in the summer and about half of my class didn't go anywhere except maybe a train ride down the Clyde coast to sit on a damp beach and have fish and chips. The rest of us had Irish parents so off we'd go on the cattle boat to Ireland (yes a real cattle boat as we were poor and the only way to get there cheaply), it could take up to twenty four hours but one hour now. My grandparents farm was better than an adventure park although much more dangerous. The adventures I had there are for another thread. Where did you go on vacation and what adventures did you have?
