How laborious can it be to unwind in this ‘modern civilisation’? We spend many hours researching the perfect destination, the best means of travel and the perfect itinerary. We read the ‘Lonely Planet’ from cover to cover to ensure we see all the sights and go on all the walks and don’t eat somewhere lousy. No more getting lost or going on adventures. We’re too risk-averse. There’s no time! We only have a few weeks off per year, so we have to rush to relax.
I wonder if it’s connected to the belief that work is virtuous (our protestant work ethic) and not working makes you wicked, so you have to excel at doing holiday.
Who votes for beers in the back yard?!
