We have not been on a vacation in quite a while and a good break would do us the world of good! Even if it is to a quiet country hotel somewhere in the mountains for a week, will suit me fine. The mountains have the walking routes which are very appealing too. A log fire in the lounge after a quiet supper sounds great. You never know ..it might just happen!

Everybody needs a break sometimes, I hope you manage to get one. It would be helpful if you told us about the photo.

That photo was at a place called "High Noon" in the western Cape. We took a lovely scenic drive into the mountainous area.

@dianadee Thank you - it does look gorgeous. (I'm on a bit of a campaign to get people to attribute and explain their photos).

I could use a holiday, too. Just me, a backpack, and happiness.

The simpler the better, not too much luggage either!

@dianadee So true. I just want to travel somewhere else for the fun, not for the luggage.

@zarlamain Luggage can really clutter up the vacation, especially too much!

I hope it does happen for you soon. Holidays in the country are always much more appealing to me than spending time in a city.

Amazing how many people are yearning for that break. Will have to plan and put aside some cash.

I love the inspiration of mountains, but the sea is also another option. Guess what..our favourite type of holiday..cruising!

I am desperate for a break - I am off to Pilansberg in December with my boyfriend - so I just have to be patient

@SophieY Sometimes we say that a holiday will be too much money and just give up. The pros outweigh the cons. See life from a new angle afterwards!

That sounds like a good way to spend a week. I would not mind going to a nice hotel myself. I said I would in Oct but we shall see.

The break does not have to break the bank either. One can find specials on the internet, at the off season rate, at most establishments.
