Cream Teas, Traffic Jams and Sunburn: The Great British Holiday

Cream Teas, Traffic Jams and Sunburn: The Great British Holiday - Brian Viner A book about the Great British Holiday and the Great British on holiday.For all those who have battled with putting a tent up in a howling gales and rain in August or have been stuck behind caravans, or moaned about the towels left behind by Germans, this is the book for you.Viner touches on lots of different subjects, not always in depth, but enough to get a flavour. It is very, very funny in parts, so much so that I did laugh out loud at some parts.Very good, well worth a read.
