Mini Break Articles

Mini breaks are a pocket-sized pedicure for itchy feet, the perfect solution for those who suffer from the travellers' ailment but don't always have the time or money to treat it. They range from city escapes to countryside retreats, spanning anything from a single night to a long weekend, and are the ideal way to recharge batteries without performing a full system reboot.
