Jennifer Aniston is planning a trip to Greece to explore her family's roots in a bid to escape the limelight.

The former Friends actress is desperate to escape the media frenzy which has surrounded her since splitting from ex-husband Brad Pitt in January (05).

And she hopes a visit to her family's farm will give her the opportunity to live a normal life for a few weeks.

She says, "I'm going to take some time off, travel. I want to go to Greece and some other countries.

"I lived there for a year when I was five or six. We lived in Athens for six months, then we lived in Crete.

"My family has a beautiful farm. I've only gone back there once. It would be a refreshing thing to be out of this (Los Angeles) bubble."
