      We didn't steal the fire
      It was only restin' on Dunmanifestin
      We didn't steal the fire
      Now the gods decry us, but they can't deny us

      It was always waiting for appropriating
      We didn't steal the fire
      We can build and burn it -- now let's go return it
      We didn't steal the fire
      Now the gods decry us, but they can't deny us
      We didn't steal the fire...

      Hello again, my little starry-eyed skywalkers! We've reached that
      time of year when people of all species yearn for the traditional
      end-of-summer holiday (except for beings in XXXX, who have reached
      that time of year known as Oh No, Will This Winter Never End?! and
      yearn for their traditional beginning-of-Spring holiday). So once
      again I have consulted the celestial charts and am proud to present
      the most suitable package holidays - or "vacations", as some of our
      more whimsical Morporkians call them - for holidaymakers of each
      Sign, along with some useful tips and booking advice and whatnot.
      Enjoy yourselves, and don't forget the sunscreen (of course, for
      beings from Leshp, Dunmanifestin and the Dungeon Dimensions, the
      phrase "slip, slop, slap" takes on a whole new meaning...)


      The Adamant Hedgehog 21 Mar - 20 Apr

      YOUR HOLIDAY: Song of the Deserts

      WHAT YOU GET: All the excitement of camel trekking across the
      Klatchian Waste, with stops in Tsort, Ephebe and - temporal anomaly
      permitting - Djelibeybi. Bookable extras include a side trip to the
      Dehydrated Ocean, though this is strictly seasonal, and a viewing
      of the fabulous Light Dams of the Great Nef. If you love sand, sun
      and smelly dromedaries, this tour won't disappoint!

      WHERE TO BOOK: Harga's House of Ribs; any Desserte Waystes Tours

      WHAT TO TAKE: Water; more water; extra waterbags; sunscreen; soft
      cushions; burnooses; camel polish; even more water.

      NOTES: Your best bet for cabaret and exotic dance is Midnight at
      the Oasis. *Any* oasis. On no account should you speak to any
      Klatchian Foreign Legion recruiters, unless you wish to extend your
      holiday for a very, very long time...


      Gahoolie, the Vase of Tulips 21 Apr - 21 May

      YOUR HOLIDAY: Dungeons and Dragons and Pubs, Oh My!

      WHAT YOU GET: A fascinating tour of Ankh-Morpork's lesser known (and
      perhaps rightly so) attractions, including the Sunshine Sanctuary
      for Lost Dragons, the Old Lemonade Factory, the Patrician's Palace
      dungeons, Bearhugger's Whisky Distillery, shopping in Sator Square,
      a traditional Ankh-Morpork pub crawl ("crawl" being literal), and
      Open Days at various Guilds (Seamstresses and Assassins not included)
      plus accommodation at the YMPA and daily breakfast at Gimlet's Deli.

      WHERE TO BOOK: C.M.O.T. Dibbler, Sator Square; Clacks bookings also
      taken internationally.

      WHAT TO TAKE: Seasoned travellers to the Big Wahoonie always take
      nose plugs, earplugs and boot scrapers. Also, always remember - your
      Thieves' Guild Visitor Discount Card: don't leave home without it!

      NOTES: Avoid the Shades at all costs. There's another package
      holiday for that, but it wouldn't suit you Gahooligans. Trust me on


      Herne the Hunted 22 May - 21 Jun

      YOUR HOLIDAY: Lancre on Fifty Pence a Day

      WHAT YOU GET: This charming rustic experience includes the high and,
      erm, less high points as listed in the Very Rough Guide to Lancre,
      and all the scumble you can drink (bring your own very small non-
      metallic cup). Tour King Verence's hydroponic gardens, watch a
      shoeing demonstration at Jason Ogg's forge, abseil into Lancre Gorge;
      visit Slice, Bad Ass and the Place Where the Sun Does Not Shine; plus
      tea at Lancre Castle and accommodation at the Goat & Bush.

      WHERE TO BOOK: the Lancrastian Consulate (two doors down Turnwise
      from the Patrician's Palace); True Blue Cheese Importers.

      WHAT TO TAKE: Sturdy boots; warm clothing (Lancre is in the Ramtops,
      after all); goat repellent; Ironheel's Guide to Morris Dancing.

      NOTES: This tour is not recommended during Nanny Ogg's bathtimes,
      which are now listed by Royal decree in the Almanack.


      The Wizard's Staff and Knob 22 Jun - 22 Jul

      YOUR HOLIDAY: Death Makes a Holiday

      WHAT YOU GET: *Definitely* a once in a lifetime experience, this tour
      of Death's Domain will change your Discview forever. In addition to
      the Beehives, Maze of Unforgetfulness and the Lawn of Eternal
      Wandering and Croquet, you can visit Ysabell's apartments and marvel
      at Albert's inimitable kitchen, where fried porridge is always on
      offer. Accommodation is, of course, temporary. With an option on

      WHERE TO BOOK: Ask any witch or wizard, or apply at branches of the
      Tigerheart Misplaced Cat Sanctuary. Of course, there are also more...
      direct ways to book.

      WHAT TO TAKE: Copper pennies; apples and carrots for Binky; antacid
      tablets; large amounts of mood-altering substances, as a form of
      mind protection; a copy of "There and Back Again" by the Abbott of
      the History Monks.
