I just need a break desperately, and wondered who has done this and how.
I don't want to visit friends or family. I want to be alone.
I don't want to have a couple of days, I want a week, preferably more.
I'm not interested in spas or city breaks, I want somewhere hot . It's been so cold here I'm losing the will to live.
I just can't quite work out how to tell dp that I want to go off on a jolly without him or our son (16m).
And if anyone has a luxury villa in a hot country where I can go and be totally and utterly alone, please make yourself known.
you know I was thinking of starting a thread exactly like this, as i wanted to go away on my own abroad for a week, but cant afford it so that's that. so cant offer anything to you either, just wanted to say when you go, enjoy it, and ill be sat here lol
No Pruni I don't think it's blasphemous at all. There'd be other people on it though. If you aren't religious there are other types of retreat but as a Christian I'm hoping you go on one with us lot and become a believer
I've heard of a yoga type one before but I'm guessing there are lots to choose from?
I have been on hol on my own three times - total bliss for those over-stressed times! Book a cheap flight to a Greek Island, get a bus or taxi to a smallish nice place, and look for the 'rooms to let' signs - you can invariably get a really lovely self-catering room with terrace or courtyard for less than £15 a night out of season - i.e now-mid-July. Look at a few and avoid anything obviously too studenty. Lots are the ones you see in brochures but haven't been booked.
Or get a cheap RyanAir flight to Gerona, (do I mean Gerona? the airport inland from the Costa Brava) Hire a car at the airport (you can check hire prices in advance through Europecar), drive to llafranc or Tamariu, and find a little place to stay through the agents there. You could google in advance. great scebery, not over-developed, can eat v cheaply in nice cafes on the seafront, and walk along coastal path.
I'm thinking about this as well. I really need some peace! I'm tired to be the memory of the household. I just want a place where I can relax and forget that I have to remind DH that the house is NOT in that direction or that DS normally eats at lunch!
