With just a short flight but a huge change of scene, a few days away in a buzzing city can be a thoroughly revitalising experience. Explore galleries such as the famous Hermitage in St Petersburg, treat yourself to a romantic dinner at a Michelin star restaurant in Rome or get the senses buzzing at a Spanish market or Moroccan souq.
However, a short break can also incorporate further afield - a long weekend in the Masai Mara, Kenya or the northern lights in Iceland. Whatever crazy ideas you might have - talk to us - we love to put together a short break that goes beyond the ordinary.
The Steppes office most recent team outing was a weekend in Istanbul cruising the Bosphorus and learning how to cook authentic Turkish food – we highly recommend it.
