Hike into the alps and have an adventure that people have enjoyed for centuries.

Planning the Perfect Weekend Getaway

Before you start booking and searching for great weekend getaways, you need to know what type of holiday you want. Do you want to go to an exotic seaside location and stay in a five star resort? Do you want to head to the countryside and enjoy natural trails, some cycling and adventure walks? Do you want to take to the snow capped peaks and learn to ski or snowboard? There are so many options, so having an idea on what you want for your weekend can help you find the best deals that come in within your budget.

The next thing to remember is the types of accommodation available. If you can five star is always enjoyable as you have the best of everything, sheer luxury, elegance and outstanding service. But don’t be fooled, three and four star accommodation can be just as rewarding, bearing in mind that every country has their own rating systems. Know if you want a double room, a twin room, adjoining rooms or an apartment or suite which can accommodate you and your family with ease. This will narrow down your search considerably.

Know who you are travelling with, this can make your decision so much easier. Travelling as a family can be exhausting, especially if you have younger children. In these cases look for weekend getaways where there are things for the children to do to reduce the risk of boredom and ensuring that you have the best holiday experience. As a group of friend, find friends that are interested in the same things as you so that you know your weekend will be one filled with fun and excitement, good laughs and much needed relaxation.

Further, you will want to take a close look at inclusive deals and this is why. Inclusive deals sometimes include your flights and airport transfers, so you pay one price for everything. You can find deals that include breakfast or dinner bed and breakfast, those seaside resorts may throw in some waterspouts or a massage at their on-site spa. Find out about the inclusive deals so you can choose which ones best meet your particular requirements.

You will want to set yourself a budget for your entire weekend. This is so important. If you do choose a holiday deal that isn’t inclusive, you may find you spend considerably more than you were anticipating, which can restrict your weekend and stop you doing things you may have enjoyed. With your budget in mind, you can browse the inclusive deals, see which ones are the best value for money and then book those, leaving yourself some spending money to ensure your weekend getaway is a complete success.

The final tip to a weekend getaway is to have some fun, enjoy yourself. Put your feet up, relax and make the most of your time away from home. Some people recommend turning off your phone and staying away from the internet. If you want to use your phone for photographs, maybe consider turning it onto airplane mode, so you only use the device as a camera. The calls and messages you can deal with when you are back home or in the office.

Adventures Trek

Peru, a beautiful country in South America, home to a part of the Amazon forest. The country filled with beautiful Peruvians was warm and welcoming. I spent my first two days in the country’s capital Lima going sightseeing and acclimatizing myself to its weather. By the third day, I was ready to see the beautiful Trek.

Booked a tour company, the previous day to make my tour less stressful as I chose to go on the four days trek. The tour company sent a representative to pick me up from my hotel to the train station (the fee paid to the tour company covers transportation and any other fees).

Before embarking on this adventure, it is advised by the tour company that tourists go on altitude training over hilly terrain and get medication in case an altitude sickness might occur.
