Well, yesterday was the first official day of autumn or fall. That means that cold weather is going to be coming in the next little bit. You’ve spent all summer complaining about the heat and how awful it was and you’ll spend all winter complaining about how cold it is. Some of us can’t ever win or won’t be happy without complaining about the weather or some other meaningless thing. It happens to the best of us. I complain about things all the time.
But there’s a way to combat those complaints about the cold weather. Think of a warm place and then go there!! Early fall (like right now) is the perfect time to start thinking about, planning and booking your winter trip. Go someplace warm. Get away from the cold weather here. How about Costa Rica? Warm, lush rain forests? Picturesque beaches? How about Dominican Republic? Punta Cana or Ocho Rios and their experience-rich beach resorts? The food, the scenery? Cancun, Mexico? There’s Chichen Itza, watersports, more food? Really, the list is endless. Make your friends jealous with one of those “feet in the sand” pictures.
You can stay in the States, too. Key West, South Beach, San Diego, Hawaii? There’s so much to do in this country and it requires no passport! Even Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. You can go there, in the Caribbean and not need a passport. There’s also cruising. Take a 7-10 Caribbean cruise. See great ports-of-call, nightlife, drinks, casinos. It’s all there. And with cruises, as long as you leave and return to the same port via a cruise ship, you don’t need a passport for that either (although I do highly recommend that you do have one).
How about if you’re exactly the opposite and want to explore places for the winter that actually have a winter like Canada, Scandinavia or a river boat cruise through Old Europe during Christmas? Sit on the boat deck, topside, and sip wine, wrapped in a blanket watching castles float by you in the land and region in which our holiday-traditional Christmas (not necessarily the religious view of it) comes from: i.e. Germany, Austria, etc. Those, too, have stops every day at ports-of-call but the experience is vastly different than ocean cruises. These are but the very tip of the iceberg for winter travels (that’s a pun).
I want to help you do the planning, the plotting and the booking for this winter’s excursions; cold, warm, exotic, wherever. Contact me on my website (phone numbers, emails, etc. are on there) or on my Facebook page and lets work on turning your dreams into memories! Stay warm (or cold, if that’s your thing) and let’s go somewhere!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
