Prime Minister David Cameron is on vacation

Even prime ministers need vacations.

Both Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg are reportedly travelling to Spain for their break - where the Lib Dem leader will be visiting his wife's family

David Cameron, who last year took a two-week long respite in Tuscany, made the case for his need of a break on Sunday when he told reporters that he was taking a post-Olympics family vacation, according to the BBC.

Cameron told reporters: 

I am a great believer that politicians are human beings and they need to have holidays...I don't call it annual leave, I call it a holiday and I am looking forward to having a holiday. If you don't think politicians ought to have holidays I think you need to have a serious think. But I'll be back for the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games.

The Camerons have also previously vacationed in Cornwall, where their daughter was born in 2010, but this year they are said to be heading to south to Spain, according to the Press Association. The Guardian reports that the Camerons will vacation with extended family for 10 days. Cameron will then return to London for a few days and then go on a shorter, U.K.-based respite.

Cameron's deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, is said to also be spending two weeks in Spain, while opposition leader Ed Miliband is reportedly heading to Greece, the Press Association reports.

Meanwhile, new French president Francois Hollande headed to Fort de Bregancon in the south of France last week via train, the AP reported.
