Winter comes in many façades – polar, rainy, cold, snowy or comfortably warm. It’s an exciting time to visit impressive metropolises and fascinating villages. There are usually less crowds and the low off-season lodging prices make travel budget-friendly.
Take the train to explore countries at your leisure or trade your hiking boots for new skis or snowshoes for a refreshing way to experience mountains. The colder weather and the snow make going to a natural park a completely different experience. The busy trails are now calm (romantic) retreats, and the white fine fluff covering the landscape shows you another side of nature’s splendor.
For those of you who would rather escape the cold, consider visiting Key West and relaxing on one of Florida’s best beaches, snorkeling in Bermuda, cycling in Gran Canaria, and soaking in the steamy waters of one of the planets best hot springs.
