If you love to travel, it may be tough for you to imagine a better way to spend a weekend than getting in the car or jumping on a plane and heading off for a short break. Travelling has so many benefits, and it’s a wonderful way to spend time with people you love. If you’re up for an adventure in the coming weeks or months, here are some wanderlust-filled weekends to get you thinking.
The Cultural Experience
If you love nothing more than touring museums, marvelling at masterpieces or immersing yourself in a different culture, there’s no better way to spend a weekend than booking a city break. Tailor your choice to your interests and passions. If you love history, head to Rome or Athens. If you’re a fan of art, discover the city of love, Paris or the Spanish capital, Madrid. If you’re keen to indulge your taste buds, make for Copenhagen or Bologna. Do some reading before you go, and draw up a rough itinerary, so you don’t miss anything.
The Nostalgic Retreat
If you’re looking for a date idea that’s guaranteed to impress, why not travel back in time and revisit some places that hold sentimental value? Book a bed and breakfast in Blackpool and lark around at the funfair like you did when you were teenagers. Go back to Central Park and relive the moment you got engaged. Make reservations at the hotel you visited on your first holiday together in Spain. Think about places that have special meaning to you, and try and make the break a surprise for added impact (and more Brownie points!)
The Stress-Free Beach Break
Sometimes, you just need to get away and do nothing for a few days. Even though we tend to spend a week or two at the beach, it is possible to get great deals on shorter seaside breaks. If you can stretch to 3 or 4 nights, the Balearic Islands are a fabulous option.
The Trendy City Break
If you’re a seasoned traveller, there’s every chance that you’ve ticked the big-hitters off your list. You may have been to Rome, Paris, Barcelona, and Amsterdam, so how about embracing new travel trends and going to some emerging destinations? This year, cities like Lisbon, Riga, Dubrovnik, Oslo, and Helsinki are making waves.
The Adventure Weekend
Adventure holidays are an excellent choice for those who want to experience something more than a sun bed and make the most of the surrounding environment. Hit the slopes in Verbier or Tignes or get your adrenaline pumping with a snowmobile safari in Iceland or Finland. Go hiking in Austria or get on your bike in the Yorkshire Dales.
Many of us live for the weekends. When you’re working hard, it’s always good to have something to look forward to, and if you’re a victim of wanderlust, there’s nothing better than the promise of a couple of days away at the end of a tiring week. If you’re a travel fan, hopefully, these ideas have given you some inspiration to celebrate the weekends in style.
