The very notion of a weekend getaway is delightful. Maybe you’re taking a spontaneous trip. Or a long-planned and much-needed escape from the weekday grind. Didn’t Bridget Jones call it a ‘mini break’, when she and that cad Daniel Cleaver retreated to the country for a weekend? Whatever it is and wherever you’re going, just the idea of jumping on a plane or in a car for a short jaunt is exhilarating. Every year, my girlfriends and I plan a weekend getaway and every year, we count down the days – it’s one of the highlights of the whole year!
A short getaway means you can leave that suitcase at home and travel with something a bit smaller, like a weekend bag. Here are 8 options to consider:
