Much more than lying on a beach

Lying on a beach or by the pool has its place in the holiday pantheon. We all like a bit of time off to do nothing but, let’s face it, we’ve done it all before and it soon gets boring. Being active, pushing yourself to discover new skills and getting a useful ICC qualification out of your break is a much more productive way of spending your precious time off.
