Spring Ski Breaks

Spring Ski Breaks

It's funny to think that skiing – one of mankind's earliest forms of travel, first documented in Norwegian cave carvings dating to 5,000 BC – not only still exists, but is in fact more popular than ever. Ironically, what began as a necessary adaptation to travelling in snowy climes, has today become characterized as the recreation of choice for the super rich. Of course, the wealthy and titled aren't the only ones who can ski, and aren't the only ones who do – skiing's popularity is broad because it's primal. As one die-hard ski fan explained it to me, "It's the closest I've ever been to flying". Fair enough. By Russ

 

Spring breaks and family holidays in London

Spring breaks and family holidays in London

Spring has sprung in London, and it’s a great time of year to take a break with your family. With a surprising amount of parks and green spaces in the city, there are glimpses of spring around every corner, peeking out from among the traffic, shops and buildings. There are lots of opportunities to get out and about, stretch your legs and experience the capital in the clear spring air after the long and cold winter. Although let’s face it, the British weather may not have got the memo about the change of seasons – so spring in London is likely to be anything from warm and sunny, through to rainy with showers, and days where it will probably still be on the chilly side.

Spring Breaks in Italy

Spring Breaks in Italy

The spring months mark the perfect time for a getaway. Before the summer crowds have so much as stepped onto the airport tarmac, why not take the opportunity to enjoy your destination in all its tranquil splendour? Italy, of course, is a splendid place to visit at any time of the year, but a spring break in Italy is especially rewarding: wildflowers are in full bloom, the weather is balmy yet not oppressive, and charming spring festivals and processions are in abundance. Not to mention, of course, that you will benefit from the seasonal increase in daylight hours; although when darkness does descend, there’s no shortage of entertainment. By Ronnie

In Spain, you’re guaranteed to find amazing architecture – Iberian, Visigothic and Roman to name but a few strands – as well as plenty of world-class museums. The landscapes, meanwhile, are perfect for connecting with the natural world, whether you’re watching mules trip along country trails to ancient villages or surrounded by pines in the Picos de Europa National Park. By Ronnie
