Written and read by best-selling Australian author and much-loved actor William McInnes, this is a story about our love affair with holidays. It's about going away and staying at home. It's about the relaxing times you had as a kid, escapes you have with your children and the stories you hear from your friends. It can be about a romantic sunset, the spare seat at breakfast being taken by an attractive stranger, a miraculous airline upgrade....

Hands down the best performed audio book ive had the pleasure of listening too. William McInnes's homage to the Aussie holiday is laconically funny and evokes images of a more innocent time of country that seemed somehow less self conscious. A fine stage actor in his own right, he delivers his own words in a way that noone else could, evoking different characters and locales one after the other. And, in the end, it's profound and touching but in the most truthful and understated way - perhaps the most beautiful thing of all.
