Ideas for great weekends

The sinking feeling you sometimes get when waking up on a Saturday morning and realising you've not planned anything fun for the weekend is a thing of the past for 2008. We stumbled upon this excellent list, complied by Chris Haslam for the Times Online which basically plans out your entire year of weekends.

Fantastic! Here are the recomendations for January to get you started:

Weekend 1: New York Sales
Pack your bags light so you leave empty space for all your bargain purchases. Even better this year with the strength of the pound!

Weekend 2: Extreme Skiing
Luxury Ski Hotel of the Year La Pleta is offering an adrenaline-packed extreme-skiing weekend.

Weekend 3: Winter sun in Marrakesh
Hit North Africa's capital of colour and take in the sights, smells and sounds of the most vibrant square in the world, Djemaa el Fna. Snake charmers, fortune tellers and teeth pullers included.

Weekend 4: Stylish elegance at Wiener Arzteball
Dance the night away at Vienna’s most elegant ball. Tickets cost £60 (5150 11234).

So...what are you waiting for? Get your tickets immediately for NYC and head over this weekend to bag yourself some new year bargains!
