If you don’t have children and can travel in the first half of the month, it is strongly advised as it will save you a lot of money! With most of Europe basking in sunshine by this time, it can be a great opportunity to try out something new. Instead of the Spanish Costas, why not head to Milan and the Italian lakes and mountains? Or how about Geneva to enjoy lazy days and al fresco living on Lake Geneva? If you are looking for something completely different, you could check out Bilbao the capital of the Basque region and take a trip to Pamplona to see the spectacular running of the bulls!
