1. The Bahamas
A former haven of pirates, the Bahamas has become wildly popular in recent years. After working hard all year round it's time to relax in the luxurious world of The Caribbean. The white soft beaches and crystal-clear waters will make you feel at ease with life. From deep sea diving amongst tropical fish to playing with pigs on pig island, or simply sunbathing, there's something for everyone.
Capital city to the Czech Republic, Prague is an idyllic and cultural city break. Enjoy a walk along the Vltava River or discover the Jewish Quarter which includes the oldest Synagogue in Europe. In Prague you can visit the John Lennon Wall, which has pictures and lyrics from the Beatles graffitied on it, giving an urban art feel. If sightseeing isn't what you want, then Prague also invites tourists to wine and dine at many roof-top bars which give an excellent view of the sky-line.
If you prefer snow over sun and sea, then Lapland's capital has all the answers. This is a great place for a family holiday as it hosts a whole range of activities. From snowmobiling, Husky and Reindeer sleigh rides to visiting Santa in his fairy-lit grotto, it's fun for all ages. If not of that takes your fancy, why not venture out to see the Northern Lights.
Here at the southwest of Portugal is somewhere that Captain James Cook visited. It may have only been to stop for wine and onions for his crew, but there's so much more to see! This lush island is known for spectacular mountain scenery and Levada walks. After a day of exploring, why not sit back, relax and enjoy some cocktails in the chic bars and boutiques.
Brimming with culture, history, great food and fashion, Rome is an incredibly vibrant and romantic city. When in Rome, do as the Romans do and visit places like the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and the Vatican Museum. After you have done all the tourist spots, why not try something niche like visiting spots filmed in for the film Roman Holiday, or visit the Vespa Museum. When all the sightseeing is done, there are numerous of lavish designer shops to spend time looking round, or equally as exciting it the local cuisine, indulge yourself in pasta, pizza and pastries. You wouldn't regret it!
