Gaudy consumerism, freezing drizzle and a lack of outdoor activities can make winter a bit of a drag. After all, there’s only so much TV and chocolate one can take before becoming restless. If you had your heart set on a winter wonderland, and you’ve been met by relentless rain, it might be time to consider jetting off to one of the world’s great ski resorts, and letting out all that pent up energy on the slopes. There are always some great last minute ski deals available towards this winter, so consider the following destinations, pack your most stylish ski wear, and hit the snow…
The first thing that comes to mind when you say ‘Alps’ and ‘holiday’ is skiing, which is great fun and a sure way to spend your holiday exercising. But there are lots of other great activities to keep your holiday busy and unforgettable. Don’t forget to pack warm and get that ski insurance, because the Alps are going to be a veritable whirlwind of fun.
And whichever resort you choose, you’re bound to feel far away from all the worries of the world, ensconced in a beautiful, picturesque village and breathing the crisp mountain air.
Croatia is a recent addition to the EU, and over the last few years it has completely transformed its image from a war-torn country struggling for independence, to a premier visitor destination. Still one of Europe’s best-kept secrets, the charming walled city of Dubrovnik is known as The Pearl of the Adriatic for its extraordinary beauty, excellent cuisine, the red-tiled ambience of the Old Town with its picturesque, narrow cobbled streets and unsurprisingly has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
When you stare out of the window and all you see is grey skies, you could be forgiven for wondering whether you might be starting to feel the effects of SAD. Well, there is a good solution to all that, head away on holiday!
If you have ever thought about learning or improving your Spanish but didn’t know where to start exactly, here is a few reasons why you should travel to one of the most popular destinations in Latin America to learn this very widely spoken language.
Mexico is one of the best cities out there to learn Spanish as the locals there tend to speak Spanish much slower and clearer than in other places meaning you can feel more comfortable practicing it when you’re there. It is also the most populated Spanish-speaking city in the world so there is no shortage of opportunities around for you to practice. And of course, the best way to really get to grips with a language is to use it, and use it often.
So with that said, if you’re thinking of improving your Spanish skills or maybe you want to start from scratch, then why not take a language course right here in Mexico?
