A holiday with friends is a must for any friend group. They provide laughter, tears – a whole lot of tears – and best of all, lasting memories.
Now Hollywood obviously works in hyperboles and any Hollywood film about girls holidaying is of course taken to the extreme, but, you do find a lot out about yourself and your friends when abroad.
Seven days is all you need for an adventure so make sure you embark on one with your friends before boyfriends turn into fiancés. Below are an array of destinations that you and your mates could travel to for a unique and more importantly brilliant holiday.
Located in south-western Germany, Baden-Baden is an eclectic mix of pampering and partying. The town is noted for two things: its casino and its world famous spas. The casino attracts some of the richest men from all of Europe and the parties thrown there are lavish, opulent and best of all, notorious. You would never have partied in such style like you would have had in Baden-Baden, so it is little wonder that numerous magazines name Baden-Baden as their casino of the month and others have lauded it with the title of the world’s greatest casino.
Then there is the spa, which is the perfect place to relax and return to normality after a heavy night of partying. The water rises from 6,500 feet underground, reaching temperature between 50-68° on the way to surface. The minerals acquired by the waters ascension are vast: sodium, lithium, caesium, silica, boric acid, manganese, magnesium, as well as traces of cobalt, zinc and copper. There aren’t enough hours in the day to tell you just how beneficial they are for you.
The spa treatments are the best in the world, as to be expected when you have the cleansing water that Baden-Baden has, but, for a spa town it certainly knows how to party. Expect to see £10,000 bottles of Krug going everywhere.
The Croatian island of Pag is quickly becoming one of Europe’s premium party destinations. Situated in the idyllic Adriatic sea, Zrce Beach is becoming the eastern European version of Ibiza, attracting top DJs and tourists from all over the world, especially for the ever popular Hideout Festival. But, the real beauty of Zrce Beach is the value for money. Croatia does not use the Euro, rather the Kuna – which you get 9.53 to the Pound Sterling. If you want to party hard and party cheap then you need to book flights to Croatia and you need to do it quick – the country has joined the EU so the Euro is not too far away.
The city of love is the perfect destination if you and your friends want a cultural awakening. The city’s splendour is witnessed in every nook and cranny. Landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Louvre should all be visited. It is the type of trip where you will be wanting to explore with every waiting minute whilst the food in any restaurant is nothing short of orgasmic. If you and your friends are going to treat yourself then treat yourself to Paris.
But the most important thing to remember is that it is not the destination that matters most, it’s the people you are going with.
A holiday out of town with friends? Yes please.
