Hi all!

For xmas this year I have decided to take my girlfriend away for a short break. I don't have a huge budget to do this so it will only be for 3 or 4 nights and it'll be in Jan or Feb. At the moment the only ideas I've had are Paris and Venice. Do any of you fellow forumistas have any suggestions as to where I could take her? I am open to all possibilities but please remember that the likes of Barbados and Dubai are out of the question because of lack of funds.

Many Thanks in advance,
Nakey

    I believe Prague is quite inexpensive. I enjoyed a long weekend in Brussels once, lots of bars and restaurants, it rained the whole time but we had a superb time.

    Prague is lovely, especially at that time of year.

    Thanks for the suggestions Jilt, I'll look into both of them. Is there anywhere in Europe that's still quite warm that time of year?

    I don't think so, You can get some really cheap deals in Egypt sometimes, I once went on a trip called 'A few days at the pyramids' which speaks for itself. Jules Verne do a lot of short breaks www.vjv.com Just depends on your budget.

    Maybe the south of Spain or Gilbralter. Easyjet do cheap flights there all the year around, you should be able to get a good deal. They may not have offers for Jan or Feb yet, but its worth a shot.

    All great suggestions, I'll definately follow these up. Rome, Milan & Istanbul have all now been brought to my attention as well. Any more ideas?

    I'll keep an eye out for that too Vic, cheers!

    Also, has anyone ever been to Bruges? Watched the movie (In Bruges) and I now have the urge to go there since it looks so beautiful.

    amsterdam is great for a weekend away - lots to do and see, very good fun.

    Bruges - every time we come back to england we drive past and always say we are going to stop and stay for a few days.
