Compiling the travel round-up at the end of the summer is always a joy. I love to read about your trips within the UK and beyond: the lazy days at the seaside, city breaks, fun and exploration.

Finally, I defy anyone to read this inspiring but wonderfully funny post by Alex, blogging at The Long Chain, and not want to cheer at the end of it.

A. Take them camping. No joke*.
