Life’s too short
How many times have we heard people say, “life’s too short”? How many people do anything about it? Not many I can assure you. We lead very busy, hectic lives and often neglect ourselves, believing that we have all the time in the world to do all those things we planned to do. OK, I accept that we have responsibilities and people rely on us, but taking time for yourself doesn’t have to be the traditional two week break in the sun, worrying about all the work that will be waiting for you when you get back.
It’s well known that simply getting away for a three or four day break is enough to allow you to step away from the rat race and recharge your batteries. So where can you go for a short break? We are uniquely placed in the UK to travel within eight short hours to some stunning places. Here in the UK we have some amazing destinations for city breaks, each with it’s own identity and each has something to suit any traveller. I have been surprised recently by both Cardiff and Manchester.
Want something a little less British? Then why not try out some of the Scandinavian countries. Sweden, Iceland, Norway, Finland or Denmark. All stunning countries within a stones throw from any UK airport. The traditional British holiday destinations on the Portuguese or Spanish coasts can be visited off season or midweek for a totally different experience.
Europe also boasts some stunning cities such as Budapest, Prague, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Dublin, Monaco and Amsterdam. The list could go on with over 27 Countries being member states of the EU. You could spend a whole lifetime just visiting the countries and cities of Europe
So where have you been for a short break that was unforgettable? Where would you go if someone gave you a plane ticket?
