My friends who live in the UK have decided to go to Italy for a few days, over the Thanksgiving holiday. I found this news amusing, only because while we, in the continental U.S. plan for family get-together across the country for Thanksgiving, she and her husband plan to do a weekend getaway. And then I realized, all the Americans living abroad, or calling a part of the world their temporary home, whether for work or school or just because, there are wonderful opportunities to plan a quick getaway and see…

Edinburgh is always a good idea, and for a weekend getaway it’s the highest on my list – especially when there is a list of best coffee shops to help start up my day
Experience Quebec if you are spending the holiday alone in the US. Cross the border (legally) of course and see Quebec.
Book one of these wildest accommodations and spend the weekend in the most memorable fashion possible
