X-treme Holidays

X-treme holidays.

In the past holidays were a trip down to the sea or an aeroplane journey to another place on the Earth. Any destination was no more than one day away. As the transport became faster and faster, the destination seemed to be nearer and journey times became shorter. However, once travel to space became cheap and easy and the furthest moons had been landed on and bases set up it was then possible to take holidays there.
Some of the moons and planets have unique features that make holidays even more popular than before. After all, since almost every planet and moon is lifeless and barren why visit there when you can have an X-treme holiday that you'll NEVER forget.
