At this time of year, many of us are dreaming of sunshine and warmer climates to come. As the new year approaches its time to start planning your next adventure! Having something to look forward to will help you get through a dreary winter with a smile.
So, where will you go? Who will you take? What kind of holiday will benefit you most? Here are some alternative holiday ideas for 2020:
Cruise around the Med: No more cooking, cleaning – no need to even make your own bed. A cruise is the perfect holiday choice if you’d like to completely relax and take it easy. It’s also a great option for those of you who wish to experience a variety of places rather than just one destination. Cruises with P and O enable you to drink with the French, eat with the Italians, walk Portugal’s cobblestone streets and soak up the Spanish sun – all in one trip! What’s not to love? Tick several places off your bucket list instead of just the one!
Romantic City Break: We all know Paris is always a good idea, but Paris with your partner is something else. Once the temperatures start to rise, the city’s streets fill up with chic assemblies of chairs and tables, each one more inviting than the next. Enjoy the Parisian streets and cafes in their full splendor – not too many crowds, but just enough buzz to liven up the atmosphere. Admire postcard views of the Eiffel Tower and Sacré Coeur as you enjoy a croissant, crepe or macaroon. Could there be a more romantic setting?
Go wild on Safari: Discover breathtaking wildlife and prepare to be wowed by the incredible scenery in South Africa. The colourful destination is steeped in history and is home to some of the world’s most beautiful undisturbed natural beauty spots. If sun, sea and safari are all things that resonate with you then you will not be disappointed.
Historical tour: As well as Greek food, blue sea water and tranquility, Athens is the place to go for history lovers. Ancient monuments stand proudly around the capital city. The rugged and iconic citadel of the Acropolis towers dramatically over Athens, ensuring part of the city remains perfectly frozen in time. The mind-boggling history of The Acropolis dates back to 447 BC but even if you’re not holidaying for an education, it’s worth visiting for the breath-taking views.
Family Fun: If you’re on the hunt for springtime sun, Florida sure will guarantee you heat. Cool down at the various water parks and by the beach. Beat the queues by picking up a fast pass before hitting Disney and Universal.
Cultural experience: Visit india for a cultural awakening. The Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world, is worth the flight alone. It’s the most iconic symbol of India and is one of the most famous monuments in the world. Architecturally stunning and an inspirational story, a visit to this marble mausoleum needs to be on every traveller’s list.
Deciding where to go on holiday doesn’t have to be a stressful exercise – it should be exciting! Consider what means the most to you and what would suit your family’s needs. You’ll be by the pool with a cocktail before you know it!
