What does it mean to be on holiday? What is the definition of a vacation? Since time immemorial, along with the scrapes and bustle of life, man has ever felt the need to unwind and relax. To leave everything behind and clear the soul and mind. Perhaps this is where the term vacation came from i.e. to "vacate" your life. With the advent of today`s hi-paced lifestyle and I-want-it-first rat race, it is not unknown that the body and mind take a tremendous beating and sustain damage over time. Small wonder then, that the generation of today look to taking time off for leisure and recreation, be it a few hours at the pub, or a few days or even weeks at an exotic locale. Gone are the days when being on holiday meant curling up on the sofa in front of the television with a cool drink in one hand and the remote control in the other. With the variety of possibilities and myriad of places, people have taken to adventure vacationing in a big way.
