Lonely travels now a thing of the past


You’ve finally managed to arrange a few days off from work. After the initial celebration, you check your bank balance to make sure there’s enough for a decent holiday, pick a destination and then go through a mental list of what you’ll need: Hat and sunscreen? Check. Mosquito repellent? Check. What are you forgetting? The company, you ninny!
