When it comes to summer holidays, choosing the perfect holiday can be a daunting task to say the least. While there are so many great choices out there for the discerning traveller, picking just one or two can be a huge hassle and leave you wondering ‘what if’ about those choices you didn’t pick. Here are a couple of great ideas that you should put high on your list for this summer to help make deciding a bit easier for you!
While the choice among cruise options can be huge and picking just one can make you wrack your brain trying to decide, a river cruise is a great idea if you really can’t pick just one cruise type. You can relax on a river cruise through many of the most beautiful European countries, with Germany and the Rhine river being an example of a really impressive cruise that many people fall in love with. With so many river cruise options through Germany and other parts of the continent, it’s easy to see why this is a popular option as a holiday for many, allowing them to explore much of Europe in style and comfort.
No one does city breaks quite like Europe with so many great destinations to choose from. Whether you want to explore the tried and tested capitals such as Paris, Prague or Rome or you’re more interested in something further afield such as New York, a city break can be one of the best ways to spend your holiday time. From dining in unique local restaurants, strolling main city squares by twilight or taking in a cultural show or two, city breaks afford travellers a huge array of choice of food, entertainment and relaxation. It’s easy to see why so many love a good city break.
Of course, if you’re looking for a summer holiday that has a flair for the tropical feel, consider jetting off to one of the Greek islands, the Azores, Cape Verde, Mauritius, Tenerife or the Maldives – all of which are fairly accessible from most UK airports. After all, who said a summer holiday has to be camping, caravans or gardening? Getting away to a tropical isle could be just what the doctor ordered.
If you want something really unique this summer, consider heading off to a very far flung and possibly unexpected destination such as Canada or Australia. With so much to see and do in each, and both being enormous countries, picking just one area of each to explore will be difficult. With beaches, mountains, strange regions such as the badlands of Canada or the Outback of Australia to pick from, you might have to just plan a trip back to explore more of the region!
With so many great options for getaway ideas over the summer, it’s no wonder more and more people travel abroad for the summer holidays these days. From staycations to exotic getaways, travels have never been as exciting or accessible. Which will you pick for this summer’s big excursion? We’d love to hear from you in the comments!
