The top Lenvy-inducing holiday is a demonstration of your social skills and style. It’s uid, involves endless turnover of guests, long, self-catered lunches and dinners and picturesque surroundings. You score envy points for 1) how many people pass through, 2) the mix of generations, including glamorous occasional visitors, 3) knowing the area/community ties, 4) inventive cooking, and 5) some kind of adventure. Holiday Envy is a bit like House Envy; in the end, what counts is resourcefulness and air. The fact that your friends found this bargain villa and the cleanest beach and the best sh market, and all their children’s friends came, and they got involved in the local village talent contest, and didn’t inch at catering for 20 – these are the facts that keep you awake at night when you’re doing three nights, just the four of you, in Durbs.
