I have always envied people who live near the sea. Those people never have to go on holidays because they can always go sailing if this is what they want to do. If you look at some pictures taken near a beach, you will understand what I mean. Boating can be a relaxing hobby. You can set sail in the morning and come back in the afternoon or even in the evening. If you live near the sea, I would not understand if you told me that you never go boating. One of the advantages of living near the sea is that you can go boating on inflatable rafts whenever you want it even if it means that it is in the middle of winter. Boating can be a fun activity both for families as well as for those who are single and decide to go boating with friends. If you do not live near the sea, you might live near a canal or a river. Canals and rivers are beautiful as well and a person can set sail on an inflatable raft on a canal. I am not an expert when it comes to boats and rafts, but I know that some inflatable rafts are powered by people rowing them and others are powered by small engines. You do not have to wait until next summer to be able to take a short holiday break. So many things can happen while you decide to take a short break. Canal or river holidays are an option for all those who value privacy and those who prefer quiet holidays away from noisy and crowded cities. People take breaks during summer because they know that this might be the only chance for them to finally get some rest. The next chance to do it might be next summer, but for some of them it is already too late.
