It is that time of year again. Time to book a great vacation. With so many great vacation hotspots out there, how do you begin to decide where to go? You may read a travel blog or see a photo on Pinterest that piques your interest. Alternatively, you might decide what kind of holiday you are looking for and then book something that fits. If you are scratching your head for some great ideas, then we give you four great vacation ideas that might just fit the bill:

[highlight color=”blue”] Luxury Accommodation – [/highlight]  If you are wanting to stay somewhere glamorous and luxurious this year, then there certainly are a few choices. You can choose expensive hotel suites or luxury cruise liners, but what could be more fun than booking a big luxury villa in France! Get your girls together and find the luxury homes that have it all for you. Sharing the cost and sharing the vacation means you can all get a slice of divine luxury. Staying in France also means you get all the glamour of French cuisine at any restaurant you visit. Alternatively, stay at the villa and enjoy a few pool parties.

[highlight color=”blue”] Activity Packed – [/highlight] A cycling touring holiday is definitely the way to go if you don’t want to gain any holiday weight during your vacation. Pick routes that suit your fitness level or push yourself with a track that is even more challenging. There are many cycling tours all over Europe that can take in Italy, Holland and France. See what European life is like. You can easily explore all the history of each country while you are here. Some of these tours also involve activities like climbing and hiking so you can be sure of a well rounded workout on your vacation here.


[highlight color=”blue”] Pampering – [/highlight]  Holidays in some of the hottest places in the world can also be the most relaxing. Be pampered in a luxury resort offering the most incredible spa treatments. You’ll hardly ever be dressed the whole time you are here, and you can expect to be waited on hand and foot like a princess. Not cheap, but not a penny will be wasted when you book a pampering spa holiday in countries like Thailand or Vietnam. You can enjoy hours of meditation or hours of massage and beauty therapies with some of the all-inclusive packages available.


[highlight color=”blue”] Historic – [/highlight] Touring Europe to find your roots is one of the most interesting vacations you can take. If you already have a pretty detailed family tree, you may be interested in booking a European rail pass and visiting some of the places your ancestors lived. Perhaps you have an interest in music and would like to see the birthplace of Bach or the beginnings of the Renaissance in Florence? See some of the most incredible arts academies in the world in places like London and Paris. Whatever your interests, you can find places in Europe that will teach you and inform you through experience and tours.
