The 18-year-old uploaded to YouTube a video of a trip to Spain with his family, which sees him continue to practise the diving techniques that won him a bronze medal this summer.
The clip also features shots of Daley showing his younger relatives how to dive like him and footage of a jet-skiing trip with his friends back in the UK.
The athlete later admits that he feels "very sore" now that he is back in training after the brief break.
Earlier this week, Daley revealed pictures from his soon-to-be-released 2013 calendar.
The teen has said that he is willing to "try anything" following his London 2012 victory.
"At the moment I am studying, but I would like to become a TV presenter or something along those lines," he said.
"Film work, I'd love to do anything like that. I would love to try anything new really, be it star in a film or playing a small little part in something like that, that would be pretty cool."
