Long Weekends in 2014

If you are a travel freak and sneak out of your city to explore the world whenever you get an opportunity, the year 2014 is for you. Compared to the last year, there are plenty of long weekends in 2014. This year quite a few holidays are either on a Friday or Monday.

The icing on the cake is October when you  get not three but five holidays at a stretch. And the best month is April, which has two pure long weekends and one more if you take a leave in between holidays.


Here are the long weekends in 2014
