Imagine that guy down the pub that you see every week. He's standing by the bar and is always surrounded by a group of people hanging onto his every word. Last month? A spa party in Budapest. Last week? Hang gliding in the sun over Rio. He's always got the lowdown on the most original holiday spots, and everybody loves hearing his stories.

That's Escapism - every month we bring you holiday ideas with a difference. It's about getting out there, getting off the beaten track and meeting people you never would have in your usual 9-5 life.

We want your stories, we want the guy in the pub's stories and we want to tell you stories that you won't hear anywhere else every month. But if you can't wait that long, sign up to our newsletter for a weekly dose of getting away from it all.
