The Great British Foreign Holiday

Mark Benton has been abroad, he knows all about it: 'The British are an island race - abroad is really abroad, not just across the border but actually over the horizon. It's far away - outlandish, exotic and scary. Frankly, we're terrified of it.'

The Brits, foreign travel and all points in between - how we got there, what we did there and how we got back.
