Beating the Winter Blues with Travel

hate winter. I mean, don’t get me wrong I love the build up to
Christmas when its starting to get a little cold and the excitement for
all the alcohol that I’m going to drink over the Christmas/new year
period is building. But I dislike getting to work when it’s pitch black and finishing when its pitch black.

Once it hits January 1st, it really
affects my mental health. I seriously think I suffer with SAD and spend
around 80% of my life on Skyscanner.

Beating the Winter Blues with Travel

On a lighter note, this is why travel is great to beat the winter blues;

New year.
This one is simple. Start the year off as you mean to go on.

Tropical weather.
UK is SHIT weather wise, so get your asses on a plane and head to South
East Asia, South America or Africa and get yourself the tan you

Embrace the cold.
know I just rammed down your throat that I hate the cold and the
darkness that comes with winter but taking a trip such as Skiing &
Snow boarding with all its beautiful scenery and snow that won’t piss
you off when it melts and becomes ice. Also, hot tubs.

Easier to take annual leave.
the summer time, everyone wants time off to catch the little bit of sun
we have in the UK or if they have children will need to take time off
during half term so getting time off in January/February will be a lot

Many destinations will be full of tourists
in the summer months which is peak time, so going to places such as
Disneyland Paris & Berlin will be so much quieter because the weather is freezing.
This will be so much easier for photography purposes.

you’re sad that christmas has come and gone then some cities in Europe
will still have their markets still open, and the festive atmosphere
still in full swing. Pass me the mulled wine.

Peak time has passed so flights
and accommodation will be a lot cheaper in the months following new
year. This would be a great time to visit a place you’ve always wanted
to explore for a lot less.

Burn off that cheeseboard.

you’re anything like me then you would have eaten 4 cheese boards and
may still have another in the fridge, an active holiday will help you
burn off the holiday weight and you can still eat that cheeseboard and the 4
terry’s chocolate oranges you have in the cupboard and not feel bad.

Winter is a great time to travel with many destinations you’ve never thought of travelling too.
Are you going travelling this winter? if so, where to?
