Your daughter forgot her homework at home again, which involves you having to race back and forth like a chicken with its head cut off. You’re buried under a mountain of paper work at work and next up for today is what’s for dinner?
This means walking up and down the grocery isles trying to figure out what to put on the dinner table again. If a slight explosion feeling is apparent in your brain and one eye keeps twitching funny it’s time for a little breather (just kidding about the eye thing though)
Time for a break away! Away from hubby, the kids and all that work stress. Between home and work you don’t get to see your friends anymore. No more lunch dates, no more sipping wine together. The solution: a break away just you and the girls. Something in the line of a PJ-party, like old times, when you were younger but without the pyjamas and with a different location. So in short not at all like your average gold old pyjama party, it’s better.

Culture and history:
Rome, Lazio, Italy
Besides food, culture and the sexy Italian accents, Italy is a little slice of heaven. It’s easy to get lost in this historic city with your girlfriends! Today, sights such as the Coliseum, Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and Spanish Steps serve as a great reminder of the history of what was once Rome and what made the country powerful and great.
Athens, Attica, Greece
Ruins and ancient Greece mythological stories await for the curious at heart. The most famous sights are the Acropolis, the Parthenon, Agora, the Theatre of Dionysus and the National Gardens. Surrounded by bright blue waters and little white houses, it’s a relaxing little girl’s vakay to talk and joke about when you all get back.
Adventure or just a breakaway:
A sight worth looking at with anything from themed cruises to outdoor adventures is AWAY.com.
Active and Outdoors Getaways: which includes anything from surfing, hiking to snowboarding. These days’ ladies love to work up a little sweat and tend to their adventurous side by doing some extremes.
Beach all-inclusive: For most women the ideal holiday involves the beach, sun a lazy chair or hammock and an endless supply of food and drinks. Excellence Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic’s premier all-inclusive resort and spa on Punta Cana Beach, claims the epitome of luxury and high-end amenities. According to the site this package comes highly recommended.
These are just two of the many options!
Las Vegas, Nevada:
Party like You’re 21 again! If the boys can do it then so can we. Do it “What happens in Vegas” style. Stay in deluxe rooms and hotels before hitting the clubs and stop in at Rio to see the free “Show in the Sky,” with racy dance performances set to popular songs. Who could forget Caesars’ Palace for an open-air club experience? Feather boas and glitter, it’s the type of fantasy a grown woman deserves.
Take a Cruise
Canary Islands or the Caribbean, cruises are a great way to break away. They have all inclusive meals activities and entertainment. A company that might be helpful in this department is “Girls on a Cruise”. They organize trips each year that bring together groups of up to 50 women.
Before you have that nervous breakdown, kick the dog or explode, turn to the girls and do something fun, let loose your hair and sip Margaritas on the sand.
