Last updated:

Holidays are pretty great aren’t they? They’re a chance to think about something other than work for a week and focus on doing what you do best.

Whether that’s a week lying horizontal on the beach, ushering your other half to bring you an ice cold fruit smoothie, or galavanting up and down hiking trails and exploring provincial food markets in search of local delicacies, the benefits of switching off from the everyday hustle and bustle of working life are clear for all to see.

While most of us don’t need to be heavily persuaded in this department, deciding where to go can be tricky.

Will it be a beach break, a weekend getaway or a culture trip to far away lands? Whatever the holiday, we’ve got you covered.
