Alistair Brownlee’s holiday heaven and hell – feed from telegraph.co.uk

Alistair Brownlee’s holiday heaven and hell Alistair Brownlee, the Olympic gold-medal winning triathlete, on his holidays in the Lakes, flooded hotel rooms and his terror of packing . ‘One family holiday that stands out was camping in the Lake District, next to Ullswater: It was simple but fun’ Photo: Rex Features Great holidays. . . Which was your best holiday? Any of a number of family holidays when I was younger. My grandma had a villa in Spain, in a place called Calpe, around an hour’s drive north of Alicante, and we used to love going there. We’d have a fantastic time, a right laugh with all our cousins. One family holiday that stands out was camping in the Lake District, next to Ullswater. The weather was perfect and we spent our time swimming, playing around in the lake, climbing mountains and, of course, running. It was simple but fun.

The Cape is the meeting point between the Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean, and the Bay of Bengal, and is separated from Sri Lanka by the Gulf of Mannar. The Vivekananda Rock Memorial, one of the most famous monument in Kanyakumari, is a popular tourist destination. This memorial rock is dedicated to Swami Vivekananda, one of the greatest spiritual teachers of India in the 20th century.
