I'm looking for suggestions of somewhere to try and visit departing this coming Sunday (7/10/12) and returning Wednesday morning. I will be travelling from the UK. I'm normally based in Glasgow, but I'm in the East Midlands on Saturday, and need to be in London on Wednesday, so I'm trying to make use of my time.
Obviously its a short timeframe, so Europe will be about as far as I'll go. I will be travelling solo - I'm a male of 24, and might try and aim to find a hostel where I might meet others.
Not sure what I'd be looking for in a destination - just something that works time wise, so any suggestions are welcome. No doubt I will have limited choice as some will be ruled at by air fares and schedules at this late stage.
Would I be right in saying I've missed the boat for Oktoberfest?
Thank you got taking the time to read, and for any input you may have!
