Judging by the amount of holidays that can actually turn your weekends into long- and SUPER long weekends, 2017 should be the year to #FindYourEscape.
Take April for example, if you take leave for Thursday, 13 and Tuesday, 18 April, you'll get a total of six days off. If you take Wednesday, 26 April, Friday, 28 April and Tuesday, 2 May, you'll get a total of seven days off.
AND, if you combine those two long weekends and take off the days in-between, you can get a total of 19 days off for only 9 days' leave.
