The Crets are a group of friends who met at Warwick University in the 80s and still go on holiday together every year. The map was designed by two of the Crets, and many of the locations were copied from the back of a t-shirt.

The start locations are "home" towns where the Crets came from (or at least spent a signficant time living at). In the V1 map these proved somewhat unequal, so changes have been made for V2.

The rest of the destinations, with the exception of the University are the actual holiday locations. Most of these are in the UK, so the map's geographic bounds are England, Wales and southern Scotland. The foreign trips are special runs requiring planes or ferries.

The map now has all locations visited up to the September 2022 holiday at Wirksworth.
