Last minute holiday ideas

As the summer draws to a close many of us are trying to sneak in one last sunshine getaway or planning an end of year, long haul trip. With that in mind we asked everyone in the office to list their favourite destinations from the summer and these three came out on top…

Oxford

You don’t have to leave the country to visit beautiful towns. With riverside walks, city culture and lazy pub gardens Oxford is the perfect weekend getaway.

Check out this great blog from onetheluce, her guide has you covered for a weekend of punting down the river and taking in the history of this famous city.

Santorini

Everybody is talking about Santorini and it isn’t hard to see why. Possibly the most instagramable greek island, this romantic destination located in the Aegean Sea offers breath taking architecture on the edge of this Caldera which plays host to some of the most idyllic sunsets in the world.

 For some great tips and photos, visit Livvyland to see why she chose Santorini for her honeymoon.

Cape Town

If you are ready to plan your next long haul trip Cape Town should be a serious contender. A city that is situated between the ocean and mountains is always going to have stunning scenery, but there is a whole lot more to this lively city.

NomadicMatt has you covered at every base, whether you are a budget traveller or looking for something a little fancier he can direct you to all of the best spots.

What to pack in your suitcase

With little time to prepare for your last minute flight it is easy to forget some of the essentials to pack in your suitcase, but fear not we have you covered.

These are some of our favourite accessories that are a must for that city break or week on the beach.

 

These drawstring travel bags are perfect for separating your flip-flops, bikinis and other beachwear. Don’t forget to pack your travel journal to note down all of your adventures. 

  

Keep all of your toiletries compact and together with our Rose Tinted Wash bag and to keep your suitcase clutter free add the Jewellery Roll for all your accessory needs. 

Our favourite travel Instagramers...

When searching for your next holiday it can be overwhelming with the endless amount of information the internet has to offer, from that untouched beach off of the coast of Malaysia to the perfect place to watch the sunset in Bari, Italy, blog after blog contradicting the other making your decision harder rather than easier.

To save you some time, we have listed our three favourite travel instagramers that are fun, informative and slightly addictive.
