If you’re happily based in a fascinating place, but fancy a peek at attractions a little farther afield, a cheeky daytrip may fit the bill perfectly. And while 24 hours doesn’t seem like much, you’d be amazed at what you can pack in. Staying in Melbourne? You can drive the Great Ocean Road in a day, with time over to sit by the sea admiring the Twelve Apostles. Based in Athens? Devote a day to visiting the beautiful Temple of Poseidon, where Theseus’ father is said to have cast himself into the sea. Even giant NYC gives way within a day to the tranquil scenery and ferocious politics of Washington DC. A well-planned day-trip might feel like a side-dish, but it could just be the best 24 hours of your holiday!
