Thinking of jetting off somewhere spectacular this month? Here's TNT's guide to the best the planet has to offer...
Berlin is an amazing city to visit at any time of year, with vibrant nightlife pulsing through its veins and a world class selection of museums, galleries and guerilla clubs. In February, the Berlinale, one of the world’s leading film festivals, hits the capital, attracting some of the biggest names in cinema. From cutting-edge art-house specials to comic relief, there is something for everyone, and with screenings and cultural events all across the city, you’ll be overwhelmed with things to do. Even if you’re not game for buying tickets to the film events, the buzz is immense as all the clubs, bars and restaurants pump up what they have on offer. The festival runs from February 6-16. Return tickets to Berlin start at £56 from Ryanair.com.
Your heart was in the right place when you made your resolutions but have you actually acted on them? We think probably not which is why we recommend that you get your arse in gear (and in shape too) with this yoga retreat on the Isle of Wight. It’s not too far to go but you’ll have an other-worldly experience of calm at the award-winning Nettlecombe Farm, which overlooks the sea from the rolling hills of the island. The rural weekend away includes yoga tuition in the farm’s underfloor-heated barn, accommodation and home-cooked vegetarian food. The weekend costs £280 per person and the first retreat takes place at the start of February.
If you’ve been struck by the travel bug but can’t scrape together the pennies to match then this website might be right up your street. Recently launched in the UK, My Tab allows friends and family to buy a travel giftcard, which can be used towards any or all of the trips you’re planning to take. They simply say how much they want to donate towards your adventure funds and you can do with it what you please. The website has thousands of options for flights and hotels so the world is your oyster with this one. And the best part is that the more people that use it, the better and cheaper deals they can negotiate, so get gabbing and tabbing and become one of the jet set today. It’s a much better gift than those socks your aunt promised she’d send for your birthday.
