Take a Weekend Brake in Bath and find your Inner Lizzy

With the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death last year, interest in one of her most frequent haunts, the spa city of Bath, was rekindled. With attractive Regency architecture at every turn, genteel tea rooms aplenty and the centrally located Jane Austen Centre, it's the perfect place to indulge in one's inner Mr Darcy/Lizzy Bennet fantasies. But this is a tale of three cities: the Georgian masterpiece, the Ancient Roman retreat and the trendy, modern city. A weekend break means you can take in all three sides.

Experience Mexico's Past From its Ruins

In Mexico you discover new worlds through timeless connections.  There are cities here that haven't been populated in over thousand years, and yet when you visit you come to know the people who lived there, from their art, their hopes for corn and rain, their plans for harvests and burials.  There are Colonial centers where you can trace globalization from Persia to Arabia to Africa to Spain in the arabesque of a balcony, the pomegranates in a sauce, the gold lavished on a church.  But these cities are showcases of the New World: its native craftspeople and farmers, its unfathomable wealth, its artists who decorated alters with angels as their forebears had with feathered gods.  The heritage sites of Mexico tells a story; come, let us share them with you.

Take A French Alps Winter Ski Break

Where are you having dinner tonight? Instead of trudging home to eat a takeaway in front of the TV, you could be enjoying a four-course meal in your cosy chalet in the French Alps with free-flowing wine (and no washing up after).  After a day on the slopes, you'll have worked up an appetite, so there is nothing more welcoming than a home-cooked meal along with some great conversation to get you in the mood to party.

Enjoy Winter Scandinavian Style

What are you doing this evening?
