The perfect mini-break away begins like any other trip. You need to decide who to go with, when to go, what you want to see and do. There are so many incredible destinations in Spain, so if you don’t want to go to the more busy beach resorts of the Costa del Sol, Mallorca and Tenerife, you can instead go and enjoy an authentic experience on less traveled destinations.
Tips for Planning and Choosing People to Go With
Choosing who to travel with can seem cruel, but it is so necessary if you want to have a great trip. Some people simply don’t mesh well together on a trip abroad, or even through their own country. They want vastly different things out of the trip, and this can mean that neither party is happy with the end result. Instead, plan trips and who you go with based on the type of trip you want to have. This way you can travel with all your friends and improve your trip satisfaction wherever you go.
Top Destination Suggestions
There is a lot to see. Therefore, you need to create a list of the destinations that take top priority. Firstly, decide on the type of holiday you are after, and once that has been decided, think about the locations that can provide you with what you want.
For sun, Spain is, of course, a great destination. Always ask those who you are traveling with for their opinion. Check out our ultimate guide to the 80 best places you need to visit in Spain which will give you lots of ideas on some of the most popular places and destinations including the Sagrada Familiar, the Alhambra Palace Granada and the Roman Aquaduct in Segovia.
Find a Great Accommodation for You and Your Friends
Once you have chosen your next mini-break destination, it is time to look for some great accommodation. Today that means going further than seeing what the hotel rates are in the area. Now, you can enjoy a truly authentic and luxurious experience by finding holiday homes to rent. There are thousands of properties to choose from to suit all tastes and budgets.
Find What There is to Do
Once you have your destination and accommodation, it is time to look for things to see and do. Online you can find a wide variety of travel guides and online recommendations.
You could even go on to social media to find some relatively unknown gems that you otherwise would have missed.
Try to rely more on local magazines, free tourism brochures and travel guides, as these will give you a more authentic experience than an international company giving you suggestions.
Tips on Documenting It
As with any trip, candid photographs and written diaries are the best way to go. You want to capture the experience for your personal memory years down the line, not just for likes on social media. To help you do this, always consider what you want to be documented for decades from now when you are feeling nostalgic. Memory is frail, after all, so get it all down now.
You don’t need to wait until summer to use up all of your holiday breaks. Instead, try to split your total holiday allowance up and go on several mini-breaks throughout the year. There are so many great destinations in Spain, and shortening your trip to a mini holiday can actually help you see more of it throughout the year than one big trip ever will.
