Weekend Breaks

Weekend breaks are a fantastic way to get away and explore somewhere new, from discovering a new culture to enjoying beautiful cuisines.

Weekend Break

Granada City Break

My Cultural Granada City Break

3
I have visited Granada briefly on a couple of occasions in the past, but these visits were flying visits, maybe for a meal, or just a passing visit on the way to or from the ski resort in the Sierra Nevada. When I booked my Spanish trip for this summer, I decided that as I would be passing through Granada I would stop here for a mini Granada city break on my way to southern Spain.
Madrid City Break

My Wonderful Madrid City Break

2
I first visited Madrid three years ago for a summer city break and I knew immediately that Madrid would be one of those cities that I would return to time and time again. After three years I felt it was time to return for another Madrid city break.
Kangaroo Island Weekend Break

Kangaroo Island Weekend Break

Vivid sapphire waters glistening in the sun, clear blue skies and a blanket of eucalyptus trees sprawled across the vibrant green rolling hills. These were the wonderful vistas that welcomed me as I approached Kangaroo Island.
Sydney City Break

A Wonderful Sydney City Break

10
During my 4 month trip to Australia I decided to take a Sydney city break, to explore what this fantastic city has to offer. I have visited Sydney briefly twice before, but I haven't...

Munich Christmas Market

I booked my recent flights to Adelaide on Qatar Airways, which had a Munich departure because of a fantastic deal that I found online. As my flight on Qatar Airways was a mid-morning departure I chose to fly out to Munich the day before and I spent the night in an airport hotel. I thought this would be an ideal opportunity to visit the Munich Christmas Market.
Prague City Break

Prague City Break

My first Prague city break was two years ago and I absolutely loved it, from the beautiful gothic architecture to the great food and, of course, the delicious Czech beers. Since my previous trip I've always wanted to return to Prague, so when I decided to plan a trip to Cesky Krumlov with friends, Prague was the most obvious choice as a base, and destination to fly into.
Cesky Krumlov

Cesky Krumlov – An Amazing Bohemian Trip

4
While I was on my recent trip to Prague I decided to visit the city of Cesky Krumlov, located in the Southern Bohemia region of the Czech Republic. Cesky Krumlov is located on the banks of the Vltava river and its 13th century gothic castle overlooks the stunning bohemian city below, now a UNESCO world heritage site.
Eindhoven City Break by WorldWideWill

Eindhoven City Break

While I was deciding on destinations for my Autumn 2016 city breaks I came across flights to Eindhoven with prices starting at £24 per person return. When you think of city breaks to the Netherlands, Amsterdam and Rotterdam usually spring to mind, but not Eindhoven. So I thought I would book an Eindhoven city break so that I could discover what Eindhoven has to offer as a city break destination.
Bergen City Break

Bergen City Break

4
For the first of my Autumn 2016 trips I decided to visit Bergen, in Norway. Bergen is located on the west coast of Norway, and is the gateway to the famous Norwegian Fjords. Bergen is also famous for its picturesque harbour, with its colourful wooden-cladded buildings lining the water front. I have always wanted to visit the Norwegian Fjords so this was at the top of my to do list on my Bergen City break.
Bilbao City Break

Bilbao City Break

Bilbao, known as the capital of the Basque Country, is a port city located on Spain's northern coast. Surrounded by rolling green hills, Bilbao is located in a valley on the banks of the River Nervión, and is the 5th largest urbanisation in Spain. Bilbao city centre is a mix of modern skyscrapers as well as many traditional buildings in the old town. Some say Bilbao is the home of authentic Spanish cuisine, and this was something that I wanted to find out for myself on my recent Bilbao city break.
Copenhagen City Break

Copenhagen City Break

Copenhagen has long been on my city break to do list, so one evening when I stumbled across some cheap flights I decided to book a Copenhagen city break. I booked my flights with Norwegian, who fly between London Gatwick and Copenhagen 5 times a day. The return flight cost just under £50pp. Norwegian is a low cost airline which is rapidly expanding their services from London Gatwick, and have the added advantage of free wifi onboard.
Porto City Break

I enjoyed my Porto city break last January so much, that I knew I just had to go back and see more of this wonderful city. So when I saw this great deal to Porto, I just knew that I had to book it straight away.
Ljubljana City Break

Ljubljana City Break

For a while now, after seeing pictures of this beautiful city, I have been longing to visit Ljubljana. One day earlier this year I stumbled across some extremely cheap flights, so I thought why not, and went ahead and booked my Ljubljana city break.
Marrakech City Break

Marrakech City Break

6
For too long now I have wanted to lose myself in the sights, sounds and smells of Marrakech. From meandering the labyrinth of narrow streets and souks while dodging speeding mopeds and donkey drawn carts, to relaxing with a refreshing glass of mint tea while sampling some delicious local delicacies, and taking in the aromatic aromas from the souks. Marrakech, the 'Red City’ is a melting pot of cultures, cuisines and traditions, and for too long it has languished on my to-do list. The time had come to put a change to that and book a Marrakech city break.
Luxembourg Christmas Markets

Luxembourg Christmas Markets

0
I try and visit at least one Christmas market each year, and this year along with a group of friends we decided to visit Luxembourg. This was my first trip to Luxembourg, so as well as enjoying the various Christmas markets, I also discovered some of this picturesque continental city. Luxembourg is completely land-locked between France, Belgium and Germany and has subtle influences from all its neighbours.
Seville

Seville Luxury City Break

1
I have always regarded Seville as the rustic heart of Spain. Known for its stunning tapas, beautiful Moorish architecture, and its labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets, Seville has long been on my to-do list. So when British Airways announced a daily service from London Gatwick, I didn't hesitate in booking some flights.
Corfu

Corfu, A Luxury Weekend in Greece

0
I stumbled across flights to Corfu whilst on the British Airways website looking for reward flight availability for a short summer getaway. Up until this point I didn't even know British Airways flew there, and when I looked into it I found out that it is one of their new routes that started in May. The 3 hr 15 min flight departs Heathrow Terminal 5, four times a week direct to Corfu.
Cornish

Cornish Treats

After my first visit to Cornwall three years ago I try and keep at least one weekend per year free to take a trip down to this beautiful part of the country. This was my fourth trip to Cornwall, and there is still so much left to explore.
