Samos, Greece (Seitani)

Samos Island is full of great beaches but by far the most beautiful ones are Mikro (small) and Megalo (big) Seitani on the north western coast of the island. They are not easily accessible but this gives them their unspoilt natural beauty. The only way to get to the beaches is by foot or potentially by boat, although I would highly recommend to do the hike as it's a scenic walk through pine forest and old olive trees and you get lovely views over the northern coast of Samos.

Bath, England

Living in Bristol, Bath is only a 10 minute train ride away for me and is therefore great for a day trip. However I do recommend a visit for those living further away as it's just a beautiful place. I have been to Bath a few times before but never got round to seeing the Roman Baths so this was the main focus for this trip. If you have time it's definitely also worth to go for a relaxing session at the Thermae Bath Spa, nothing can beat the heated outdoor pool with views over the city. Other points of interest are Bath Abbey, the Jane Austen Centre and the Royal Crescent.
