OUR SURVEY SAID…
Last November, we asked you to complete our first reader survey, and we’re pleased to say we received more than 3,500 responses. One thing’s for certain – you lot do get about. You reported that, on average, you took 2.8 main holidays (of at least a week) in the last year, and 2.9 short breaks away. We also asked where you hoped to travel next, and top of the long-haul list were Australia and New Zealand, while in Europe, a quarter of you wanted to visit Scandinavia soon. Expect more on the Nordic countries in forthcoming issues.

The Berlin Love Parade
It’s 16 years since the love Parade was born, when two cars with cassette recorders led 1 SO revellers along the Kurfurstendamm. Since then, it has grown into a street party attracting hundreds of thousands, and this year’s event promises to be colourful and very loud. On 10 July, more than 50 floats, each pounding out its own brand of dance music, will snake through the streets towards an all-night party at the Brandenburg Gate. And not all attendees are seasoned dubbers -many visitors meander in and out just to see the spectacle. Central boutique hotel Ku’Damm 101 has doubles from £80 (00 49 305 200550, www.kudamm101.com).
