    Where to go to just get away and relax for 3-5 days alone? 5th Jun 17 at 5:46 PM
    I have the whole of next week off work (Woohoo!) and it also happens to coincide with my 29th birthday.

    Apart from the usual meet a few friends for drinks, visit family I have most of the week to myself and was thinking about having a short 3-5 day break somewhere just to relax, have a few beers, visit a couple of local landmarks, sit by the pool, that sort of idea.

    Any suggestions as to where to go either in the UK or, as I have in my head at the moment, Europe? Not looking at a huge budget, 300 - 500 maybe? Travelling from around the Yorkshire area so Leeds / Manchester, I don't have a car / driving license either so that probably rules quite a few options out.

    Been mentioned but what about Palma Majorca
    You could stop in Can Pastilla which is 5 mins in a taxi from the airport and a 10 min bus ride into Palma for some very nice sight seeing etc
    Have a nice day

    Go walking in the Lake District. Get lost on purpose. Experience bad weather. Earn that drink in the pub later.

    Try eastern Europe, like Georgia. Been there several times, people are very hospitable and food just amazing. You wish mountains? You are in mountains, wish to go and swim, after 2 3 hours ure in black sea. There is a lot to see definitely.
