1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Completing the Lake Bled swim. I''m not the greatest swimmer and the youngsters finished almost half an hour before me but the feeling you get when you finish the swim is out of this world. I walked back to the rendezvous with the biggest smile ever on my face. Everyone is just so good and no-one gets cross if you are slow. All everyone wants, holidaymakers and staff, is that you have a really enjoyable swim.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Buy a Robbie, my pal Victoria had one for changing and we all looked on with envy!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely. We spend money in local restaurants and it is very environmentally friendly, even the patrol boat has a battery powered engine so very quiet and no exhaust or fuel to spill.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Brilliant, I will go again providing they are prepared to out up with my lack of speed. I really fancy the Costion sea trip. A superb holiday and I promise you won't think about work once.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The swimming holiday was absolutely amazing and I feel super fortunate to have won it. I have always been a reluctant swimmer and generally avoided it. Having won the holiday it pushed me to have a few swimming lessons so I could at least swim with my face in the water etc! I took an old school friend with me and we loved it. Slovenia is a most beautiful country. The landscape is superb and the lakes we swam in were clear and magical. the team were brilliant and did all they can to ensure everyone got the most out of the holiday. An added bonus was swimming with the World Record Marathon swimmer Martin Strel who has swum all over the world including full lengths of the Amazon, the Ganjes, the Mississippi etc etc. Overall it was an inspirational holiday that has made me want to do more. I will certainly try to do another trip and I may even brave the cold UK waters and do some here! I would highly recommend it to anyone and am very grateful to have won.
