Being a redhead with a pale complexion, you will often find me in the shaded area by the pool, wearing the biggest hat, covered in SPF50 suncream. I put tons of sun cream on, so much so, I end up blending in with the white plastic sunloungers! and I still manage to burn!.
I'll be on my holiday in the sun not dealing with the heat very well, reading my kindle, attempting to play with the kids, and sipping on cocktails.
Being a redhead means I am crap at being a sunbather.
My kids don't have my complexion, they have their fathers, thus, they very rarely burn, and they definitely enjoy the sun more than I do. They even get to jump in and out of the pool without having to reapply a fresh application of sun lotion each time - unlike me, I only have to go in for a dip and a new full application is needed.
But I do love holidays abroad, there is something magical about jetting off to a hot climate, getting to sit by the pool everyday and drinking cocktails.
A new survey from car rental company Auto Europe reveals some fascinating fun statistics on what the average fortnightly Brit’s holiday looks like.
Did you know that the average person travels an average of 2,479 miles to reach their destination, and spend just under £2000 on a two-week holiday?! During the holiday we average 2.6 books during the fortnight - this is totally me. We average 56 alcoholic drinks and us brits have roughly 4 arguments - along with the moaning about it being too hot!
