When 2015 started, I made a promise to myself that I would travel more than I have ever before and experience more things than ever before. I will be honest, I did not think it would be this good or that I would find myself in such a blessed position. I had such a bad 2014 and I felt as though nothing was working for me, the few times that I travelled abroad last year I felt so alive and so liberated which resulted in my 2015 dream to go abroad more.
Though I am totally loving traveling abroad either for business or personal reasons I think it is also very important to also throw in the mix some mini breaks homeside. I am a big advocate for mini breaks, I believe they are very essential when feeling stressed out or just want to have some alone time or spend time with that special someone.
Lately Boo and I have been thinking about where we could go for a mini break and I have been secretly thinking about what my idea of ‘A Perfect mini break’ is. I have a lot going on at work and personal and always feel like every few months I should have a mini break. I believe it’s good for the soul and always leaves me feeling refreshed more than when I go on holiday.
Living in the UK, there are so many advantages and so many different places I can visit. London alone can have so many options to choose from, especially if you want to treat yourself and indulge in a luxury weekend. I am looking for a perfect weekend away, one where you could really treat yourself and take full advantage of the city.
I recently stumbled across this beautiful hotel which offers guests a completely different kind of stay. I think we often forget to take advantage of our own country, and all the great things we have to offer. Maybe it’s time to be a tourist in England for a little while.
I also love tea houses that are very popular in Oxford and London too, there is just something about going for scones and a cup of tea that just screams ‘RELAXING’ without even trying.
Everyone has different tastes but for me, what you see in these pictures (taken by BIL) are what I think A perfect mini break should be.
