With Thanksgiving fast approaching, now seems to be the best time of any to take a trip to somewhere new. For some that may look like a family member’s home, but for others it could be the spot of ultimate relaxation. Here are a few of our favorite places to spend for spending this Thanksgiving in bliss.
Hilton Head, SC
This booming island has quickly become a huge hit for the holiday times. Their laid-back and beachy vibes make it the perfect place to sit back, grab a pina colada and enjoy the sound of the waves. For dinner, there are a number of nicer restaurants, from Truffles, with a family-style menu, to Topside, known for their high quality seafood. But, the most notable of restaurants is The Salty Dog, a Hilton Head classic that’s quickly taken over the Atlantic region.
For a bit of a chillier escape, consider trying out a vacation in Utah. The destination is known for it’s insane ski-slopes, but contains far more beneath the surface. Complete with a cute city center and scads of adorable cabins, the city is the perfect place to go for a Thanksgiving getaway.
If you’re looking to explore and adventure, DC is the place to go. As the nation’s capital, it contains some of the US’ top dining locations and most carefully curated museums. If you’re not an art person, check out the Air and Space Museum, Spy Museum or Bible Museum for a fun, but informative, day. And while you’re there, make sure you don’t miss out on the Washington Monument, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime sight.
Working in the city makes it feel like you can never leave. You always have an email to answer and a client hounding your back.

Vieques, Puerto Rico
Vieques is a charming and romantic island belonging to Puerto Rico. It is an example of pre-industrial life in Puerto Rico. The natives are very caring of the island and its nature, so Vieques remains a well preserved tropical haven perfect for romantic getaways. There are many beautiful sandy beaches here, the water is clear blue and perfect for swimming. You can have long days on the beach sunbathing and swimming when it gets too hot. The unspoiled nature of the island also means there are lush green forests where you can go hiking or riding a horse. The most interesting part of visiting Vieques will definitely be seeing wild horses running around the island freely. This is truly a nature sanctuary and you are bound to have a lovely and relaxing time here.
This little slice of traveler’s haven is located in the middle of the Aegean Sea and it is a well-known travel destination by now. Many travelers have visited this mesmerizing island and you should consider having a romantic getaway there, too. White houses with blue details set on cliff sides of the island rising from the dark blue sea are a well-recognized sight of Santorini and one you must experience for yourself. There are many trails on the island you can walk down to get to know it better. Enjoy the day on the beach and wait to see the sun set on the beautiful horizon. Santorini is also a great place for wine lovers. The island is known for its indigenous white grapes Assyrtiko, Athiri, and Aidani. They are used to produce a variety of white wines and Vinsanto dessert wine. Vinsanto has been produced here since ancient times and it has a great reputation, so don’t miss a chance to try it.
Sydney is unlike the previous suggestions. This is a big city known for its beautiful architecture, great food and nightlife, and friendly people. If you pick Sydney as your destination, make sure to take a walk through different parts of it. The view of the Sydney Harbour, which is considered one of the most beautiful harbors in the world, is a must-see. Here you can also climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the world’s biggest steel arch bridge, and soak in the best view of the city. The best part of visiting Sydney during summer in the northern hemisphere is that in Sydney, it is winter. Winter in Australia is mild, the average temperature is about 15 °C and it almost never snows. You will be able to walk around the city without getting too hot and cool down a bit if you are coming from somewhere warm. While here, you can visit some of the most beautiful beaches and parks, try the local cuisine, and have fun like a native going to their favorite hangouts. Della Hyde is a bar frequently visited by locals and it is a great place to have a few drinks and get to know the real Sydney.

Aman Sveti Stefan is a fortified island village in Montenegro. You should visit this island if you are hoping to have a luxurious and relaxing vacation with the best views around. Even Lord Byron said, “At the birth of our planet, the most beautiful encounter between land and sea must have been on the Montenegrin coast.” The most beautiful encounter between land and sea in Montenegro is definitely Aman Sveti Stefan.

Travelling for work can be a stressful experience, trips to the airport, meetings, schedules etc. can take their toll. But perhaps the hardest part of the whole trip is the wardrobe choices. Odds are on your trip you need to meet with people, attend events, dinners and other meets and greet, therefore you constantly need to look the part. However, you don’t want to be carrying a lot of luggage with you, so you need to find the balance and bring a small number of key pieces that will get you through any eventuality.
Here are a few tips to make your packing (at least!) stress free!
First, figure out exactly what you need to take…if you have a dinner event, consider bringing an outfit that can go from day to night with just a few adjustments. Therefore, you are packing less clothes, instead you are using one item and wearing it two different ways. For example, taking several ties of different patterns and colors to match your shirt is a good choice. For business women, you can also try to cover your day dress with an eye catching coat. Which is quite risqué, but in a good way!
And the look becomes a stylish day time one!
Then, when you are going out for dinner or drinks that evening, remove your coat, flash your elegant dress(or your nice silk shirt), better add in a pop of color with matching shoes or a dressy silk scarf.
Eh voila, one look, two ways! Saves a bit of space in your bag!
Don’t forget about down time when you are away also. If you are a gym bunny, then a good idea is to pack some work out gear or perhaps a swimsuit. Easy to fit in as they take up very little space and may be a welcome addition to your trip if the work part gets a bit too much. Working out is the best stress reliever after all.
Gorgeous, and while conservative enough for a work trip, still says that you’ve got personality, plus, on trend!
For traveling, I would recommend a jumpsuit. Now, don’t be afraid, jumpsuits have come a long way since Charlies Angels and are now a comfortable and accessible piece of clothing, no matter what your style or shape. They are a great one-piece item to pack in, as they take up very little space and look amazing. Great for the trip there and back because you look both smart and professional but also you can move around easily and feel relaxed.
Wear with a pair of flats to give your feet and easy time too! You never want wear your leather shoes or height heels from morning till night, right?
Nearly there, the final point is don’t forget the handbag. If you pick the right one, then one is all you will need, trick is…go for a neutral color which will match whatever you wear…light tan is a winner.
I know, right? Amazing, and screams…I am a strong, confident businessman/woman with style AND substance.
Oh…nearly forgot, top tip! When packing, roll up your clothes: this double edged sword means you will fit more in your bag and remove the risk of creased clothes….you’re welcome!!
