Throughout my time at University and whilst working in the Corporate world I have continued to travel thanks to weekends and extended bank holiday weekends. If you are truly in it to travel to explore a country, to have a quick getaway then you would not mind this at all. That’s how I saw most countries in Europe. However, if you prefer a relaxed holiday with time to chill at the beach and resorts this is not for you as it can be tiring and fast paced but I absolutely love this rush. I like a good balance of both types of trips. For me, as long as I get to jet set, be somewhere new I am happy and won’t complain .
All of the following countries I have been to for an extended weekend trip myself. You could simply take a Friday or Monday off. Make it a 3 day weekend and you will easily be able to see and discover a lot of these places. Make sure you pre-plan an itinerary to make the most of it!
