Back when I lived in Europe, I often heard people talk about taking city breaks. That terms was totally foreign to me but I understood it meant taking a quick getaway to an easily accessible nearby city. Within the European context, that often meant a quick trip to Paris or London.
Now that I live in Vancouver, I’ve become a huge fan of city breaks; mostly because they’re particularly well suited to our busy schedules (where our days off don’t always line up). Of course, given our location one of my favourite places to take a city break is Victoria, British Columbia. There’s something about taking the ferry over to the Island, the relaxed pace of life, and the beautiful sights that always makes me feel so regenerated after a getaway to Victoria.
Question: Are you a fan of city breaks? What is your favourite destination for a quick weekend getaway? Do you have any city breaks coming up? I will be heading to Portland (for Fitbloggin’ 13) at the end of June, and I can’t wait!!!!!
