Sometimes we all need to get away from life for a short while, the hustle and bustle of everyday life can get on top of us. And that is where traveling should come into things for you. There is no greater escape then seeing another country, especially when the nights are longer and the talking thermostats on the wall are saying it’s too cold to bother going outside. So here are some suggestions for getting away and enjoying your life for a little while and taking a break from the grind.
Okay, so we have said that the temperature has dropped so let’s break this down into where to go on holiday in the respective hemispheres when you want some sun and heat, starting with places to visit in the south.
Winter sun cannot be underestimated, and we are going to start by traveling to a place that some might consider far away, that is unless you’re in that part of the world.
Australia. There is so much here that you might join the thousands of people every year who consider moving to this great nation. One of the great things for English speakers is that this is a country covered in the sun during the northern hemisphere’s winter months, but they all speak the same language – more or less. You might need to learn some local lingo but that’s part of the fun of traveling. Australia also boasts a must-do that a lot of people are unaware of, it is home to the only place in the world where two natural World Heritage sites meet. The Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest are registered landmarks and you can have a foot in both of them at the same time, unique and beautiful.
It’s true; it can get cold in the south of the planet at some points of the year and so you might want to head north. For this one though we are going to recommend not just one country, but a whole continent. Europe is there for you to explore and they have made it as easy as possible.
One of the perks of Australia was the language for English speakers, well here one of the perks is the range of languages. You can’t leave Europe without having picked up some different phrases across a spectrum of the spoken word. If you’re wondering what makes Europe so accessible, well the answer lies in its trains. This continent prides itself on making the transition between its many fascinating countries as easy as it possibly can. That means you can be having croissants and coffee in Paris on Monday morning, tucking into bratwurst and beer in Berlin on Wednesday and pizza or pasta in Milan on Friday. Now, who doesn’t like the idea of all that food and sightseeing?
You can do all of that while enjoying the beautiful blue skies of the northern hemisphere knowing your friends in the south are stuck in the winter months.
