As glamorous as it often looks on Instagram, travel isn’t solely defined by the activity of dutifully ticking desired destinations off our bucket lists.
You have your stay-cations, where you explore cities in your own home country and see more of your immediate surroundings.
And you also have your obli-cations. Those real travel experiences, centred around obliged travel – such as weddings, christenings, family get-togethers and seeing your football team’s away game.View Post
If you’re looking for an island adventure, without having to travel long-haul, then the Croatian Island of Hvar should be next on your list of must-see destinations.
My latest trip with Jet2 marked my second time on the island – and this time, I was very excited to show my boyfriend (who’d never been before) around. For me, it’s the embodiment of a perfect getaway – because excuse the cliche, but there really is something for everyone. Ticking the ‘city break’ box, it has plenty of culture – such as a medieval hilltop fortress and the Renaissance-era Cathedral.
It has incredible cuisine and winding streets full of hidden gems, bars and shops. It offers a stunning marina, encapsulated in a crescent by the limestone buildings of the city itself.View Post
