Life can be busy and that can create a lot of stress for anyone. But especially if you’re working day in, day out with no break, it can start to pile up and become overwhelming. That’s why getting away is essential – but where to? You want to ensure you make the most of your time off to come back to life feeling refreshed and ready for the next challenge. That’s why we’ve put together these four ideas for getting away to have a holiday you’re sure to love.


Camping is one of the best trip ideas. Though it sounds simplistic, getting back in touch with nature is a great way to clear your mind and take a breather from the constant bombardment of emails and texts that fill your everyday life. You can adapt a camping trip to suit you, too – whether you’re looking to kick back and relax somewhere peaceful and quiet, or whether you’re looking to let out your inner Bear Grylls and go hunting and fishing, you can find something that suits you.

Camping doesn’t have to be slow and tedious, either – you can equip yourself with plenty of gadgets and supplies to make it an adventure. Whether you fancy these custom folding knives for sale to really immerse yourself in a survival-oriented escape, or you’re looking for a 4-room tent to make space for the whole family (campfire sing-a-long, anyone?), there’s plenty of fun and unique equipment to make your camping trip one of a kind.


If you haven’t heard of ecotourism, it’s well worth familiarizing yourself with the idea, as it’s one of the most up and coming ways to travel in the modern day. Ecotourism is about heading out to beautiful locations and doing fun things but without damaging the environment or hurting the local people.

This means, for example, you may choose to stay with someone local and support local businesses rather than opt for a chain hotel. This is a great idea, as you get a first-hand view of the destination you’re visiting without losing money or damaging the environment, and you know that the money you spend is going to local people. Instead of seeing a swimming pool or a gym that you could see anywhere in the world, you’re exposed to what life is truly like in that country, and you gain a much deeper appreciation of the culture.

City Break

Visiting a new city for a few days is a great option for people looking to escape life. It’s not quiet or relaxed, but instead of being a stress-filled busy where you’re worn out to the bone, it’s the kind of busy where you’re rejuvenated, and you’re reminded how exciting life can be. The great thing about city breaks is that there are so many different types around the world, so whether you’re looking for the crazy streets of New York or the quaint canals of Venice, you can find your ideal holiday with ease.

The other benefit of city breaks is that they’re incredibly versatile. You don’t need to spend forever deciding if you’d rather stay somewhere artsy or historical or adventure-filled – you have it all within walking distance in a city. And with the amount of demand for tourism, you can find lots of competitive prices persuading you to stay, meaning you don’t have to spend a ton of cash to go away. A win-win!

Spa and Wellness Holiday

Almost the polar opposite to a city break, a spa holiday or a wellness holiday is all about relaxation and taking your time. We’ve grouped the two together as they tend to be quite similar, but there’s a lot of variation to choose from with these kinds of holidays, so you don’t need to worry about being stuck with nothing to do.

If you’re the kind of person who needs to stop and slow time down for a bit, this is the holiday for you. You can spend your time sat enjoying the world again rather than rushing past it, whether that’s soaking in the sun by a quiet pool or relishing an all-natural, organic massage. If you’ve built up a lot of stress from work, this can be really bad for your health, so opting for a wellness holiday can help look after your physical and mental health.

These four holidays are ideal for anyone looking to escape from their busy life for a little while, and come back feeling fresher and happier.
