What is the reason you are going away? By thinking this through you can plan what to do when you reach your destination. If you want an adventure holiday- plan your trips. You want to relax? Look for hotels specifically for that purpose. What do you not want to miss out on? Is it the food? The culture? The arts? If you’re relaxing, does that mean, going on hikes, enjoying the spa or simply kicking it back on the beach, reading books by the sea. What do you need at this time in your lif...
