Of course not everyone has months and months or even years and years to travel, but don't let that stop you! It is more than do-able to experience amazing locations over short time periods. Some even prefer it, the chance to explore new destinations in just a few days.
With this in mind we've created some seriously awesome 'Short Trips' that incorporate the very best a country has to offer in just a few days. Perfect if you want to escape for a few days and try somewhere completely new.
The best bit? You can link these trips together or use them as 'add-ons' to the rest of your adventure.
