Destinations to try: Anantara Angkor, Banyan Tree Phuket Spa Sanctuary, or Fusion Maia Da Nang
Considered one of the world’s truly iconic road trips, the Pacific Coast Highway runs nearly the length of California, and is a fabulous way to get between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Designated an “All-American Road”, it hugs some truly vertiginous cliffs, narrowing at certain places with sharp drop-offs that provide glorious views of the ocean and native marine life (keep your eyes peeled for whales, seals and sea lions!). Ride the roller coaster in Santa Cruz, take in the incredible Hearst Castle in San Simeon, visit wineries near San Luis Obispo…the activities are endless, mama.
From snow-capped ski peaks to sun-soaked Mediterranean coastlines, it’s not hard to see why Europe is a favourite travel destination (to say nothing of its architecture, food, and culture!). Throw in convenient train travel and the ease of crossing borders, and it’s ripe for discovery. Although it can seem difficult finding a path that millions haven’t trod before you, simply look beyond that black taxi or snaking museum queue (and toss off that dog-eared guidebook), and you just might find something unique and worth writing home about.
Cruising is such a cool and classy way to travel the world: you’ve always got an ocean view, and the views are always changing! Not to mention you’ve got the luxury of a five-star hotel, often with the kind of awesome kids’ activities and entertainment options you would otherwise only find at a theme park. Throw in fine dining, fitness, cultural tours and more, and we’re pretty sure you won’t want to come home, mama!
You might be surprised to see what you can fit into a weekend with a bit of planning (particularly if you decide to leave the kids at home)! Imagine topping off your tan in Bali, exploring temples in Siem Reap, or treating your tastebuds to yummy street eats in Thailand or Vietnam. Sometimes a short break is all you need to re-energise your body and mind, and with destinations just 1-2 hours away by plane, we say, why not go away every weekend?!
