Happy 2017

Move over Christmas & make way for 2017

But frankly it’s too soon to move on from the good food and wine; essentials for a good holiday as far as we’re concerned. So, below we’ve highlighted some of our favourite places that celebrate these gifts from the gods which might help as you start planning where you spend your holidays this year. Or, if you’re ready to turn over a new leaf then we’ve also picked a few from our collection that have well-being and exercise opportunities.

Finally, as we head into a new phase, with lots planned for 2017 including a new website, our bloggers caught up with Andrew and Simon, founders of Further Afield, before they head off with their backpacks…

Here’s to a happy and healthy 2017, full of travels Further Afield.
