THE CITY BREAK
Sometimes it takes a little perspective for us to remember how lucky are. Living in the UK, we've got incredible culture at our fingertips. The majority of Europe can be accessed reasonably easily from UK airports in less than three hours and we also have a spectrum of 'staycations' to choose from. Our list of must-haves below will help you ensure you have a trip to remember.
The 500 Hidden Secrets of Paris
The 500 Hidden Secrets of Paris is a travel guide with a difference. Written by local creatives, each guide reveals Paris's best kept secrets. Where are the best street food trucks? What about record shops? And where are the best places to watch buskers? The book contains independent advice on how best to discover one of the best cities in the world. Use it alongside a regular travel guide to supplement your trip. Also available from the range and perfect for any European traveller is the 500 Hidden Secrets of London, Venice and Copenhagen.
Cabin Zero Bags are handy, cabin-sized rucksacks that have an inbuilt worldwide tracker system in case things don't go according to plan. Available in a range of colours, the bags are waterproof and have enough room to house up to a week's worth of clothing.

Their double-walled and insulated reusable coffee cups allow your drink to be kept nice and warm despite the outside temperature. With the freshness and flavour of your drink preserved, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it!
