One of the problems with the working life, when your employment comes with predetermined vacation periods, is the probability that when you're going on holidays so is everyone else.

So, as we reach the ends of our working lives, we look forward to getting away for a little break when everyone else (or nearly everyone else) is at work. 

Of course, while you're actually in the workforce whatever special deals are on offer never coincide with the times when you (and everyone else) would be able to take advantage of them.

Having got our few commitments out of the way in early November, Madam and I had decided that sometime before school breaks up for 2007 we'd be heading off somewhere for a little holiday. 

The only question was where to go.

Perth? Adelaide? Somewhere else?

Mackay > Melbourne
