We asked Rox­ane Ger­gaud, co-founder of bou­tique ho­tel book­ing site dorisand­dicky.com, to tell us how she makes the most of her an­nual leave...

Look (UK) - - LIFE -

Be­come A Long-week­ender

‘Tak­ing sev­eral shorter breaks is a great way to max­imise your an­nual leave and it’s amaz­ing how much you can see, do and eat dur­ing a long week­end. Plus use bank hol­i­days to take a long week­end away, or roll it into a week’s break for just four ex­tra days’ an­nual leave.’

Get Tac­ti­cal

‘It’s worth be­ing tac­ti­cal with your travel – by book­ing flights and ac­com­mo­da­tion sep­a­rately, you can re­ally max­imise on your time away by choos­ing flight times that mean ar­riv­ing early and land­ing home late. Fine, you might be a lit­tle bleary eyed at your desk the next morn­ing, but the ex­tra few hours pool­side or those sun­set cock­tails be­fore you leave for the air­port will be well worth it.’

You Can Still Back­pack

‘Once in full-time em­ploy­ment it can feel de­press­ingly like your trav­el­ling days are be­hind you – but not so. Over a cou­ple of weeks, you can eas­ily stay in three or four places with­out feel­ing like you’re rushed and noth­ing makes you feel a mil­lion miles away from the of­fice more.’
