Are you more of a summer person or a winter person? Maybe you’ve had enough hot chocolate for now and your body is crying out for sunshine and vitamin D. Well, while you’re layering up for the depths of winter, half way across the world people are waltzing around in shorts and t-shirts. Sickening, isn’t it?! So if you’re warm blooded trapped in a chilly country, or winter just isn’t your thing, that’s no problem. Make all of your family and friends green (or pale) with envy by booking yourself a winter getaway! Can’t justify it? How about this for an idea; instead of wrapping something up that will be forgotten about in a heartbeat, why not gift your other half an experience that they’ll remember forever?
