Everybody needs a break from work sometime. If you are like most folks in North America, this winter has seen one too many snow and/or rain storms. If you are thinking of planning a winter getaway, it is not too late. With more snow poised to dump on the Midwest and eastern seaboard, now could be the perfect time to bail for some mid-winter fun in the sun.
Arranging your travel should be perfectly easy. Just check out some of the main travel aggregators. As we are in the slow season, you should be able to find tickets and hotel reservations quite easily.
Here are our top three choices:
White sandy beaches, turquoise blue waters, cheap food, and lively culture- what more could you ask for? Be sure to bring your swimsuit, as the locals have a different mindset when it comes to what is appropriate or not. If you are bringing your teenage girl along, this definitely applies to you. Let her feel good about what she is bringing and splurge a little at Aerie. At Aerie, she will find top of the line swimwear, while you won’t need to worry about overspending.
Pretty much anywhere in southeast Asia is going to be sunny and warm right now. Though you may run the risk of getting caught up in some rain storms, you will be able to relax and enjoy warm weather. No matter what, you definitely will not get caught in any snow storm.
Always wanted to go on a safari or trek? South Africa would be very pleasant this time of year. A little more expensive than Mexico or southeast Asia, it also would provide some very memorable experiences. For the adults, South Africa also offers a budding wine industry- with acres and acres of picturesque wineries to visit.
Wherever you go, be sure to dress appropriately and treat the locals well.
