If like me you have been thinking about whether to spend two weeks in the sun or take lots of lovely short breaks over the year you will know the pressure is on to find something affordable and relaxing. After weeks of weighing up the pros and cons of a long haul break I have decided there is just too much that I want to do to commit to two weeks at once! There are many places in the UK and Europe that I haven’t been to yet and many I want to go back to and I am ready to put that right! Here is my top 5 list of places that I plan on visiting in 2011!
This year there are so many great shows opening that it would be impossible to not have London Theatre Breaks on the top of my list. I plan on seeing Ogres, Wizards and Musical legends before the year is out and I know this is one break that will not disappoint.
A trip to Amsterdam on a P&O ferry is probably one of the easiest ways to enjoy travelling. After you arrive in Hull Ferry Port you can relax as you leave your car behind and you sail off for a nice relaxing break in one of Amsterdam’s hotels. With plenty of onboard entertainment and lots to see and do when you arrive, you won’t miss the car at all!
There are so many nice hotels in Edinburgh that you will be spoilt for choice. My ideal break in Edinburgh would be a long girly weekend including lots of fine food and pampering, the perfect weekend break and exactly the way to relax after a long week.
London – again
I know this is already on my list BUT I am a little bit excited about the Royal Wedding. Since my invite was lost in the post, I am having to find a different way of experiencing it. I can’t wait to watch the day unfold and can’t think of a better place to be than Westminster on the morning of the 29th of April.
I have been to Paris many times but I haven’t turned it into a Eurostar Break. Like with Amsterdam I am all for leaving the car at home and really enjoying my holiday without having to drive around looking for car parking spaces.
There are so many amazing things going on this year and fantastic places I want to visit that all I have to do now is start saving!!
What are your plans for the summer?
