    rest/have a holiday


    Is it correct to say "We always rest at the Black Sea"? Doesn't "rest" imply short relaxation? Would it be more correct to say "We always have a holiday at the Black Sea"?

    Thank you

    Re: rest/have a holiday

    You can say "We always have a rest at the Black Sea", as well as "We always take our holiday at the Black Sea".

    The first says that it is a relaxing time; the second that the Black Sea is where we go every year.
