With just a few days to go until the World Cup 2014 kicks off in Brazil, now is the time to book your summer holiday somewhere idyllic and remote if you want to escape the 24/7 news coverage, flee the constant buzz of the vuvuzelas, and avoid becoming a World Cup widow!
There are plenty of remote summer holiday destinations that are relatively football-free (although you may want to check the TV guide before switching on the set!), so pack your bags this weekend, and head off to a World Cup Free zone such as…
Tanzania – Summer 2014
At 5,894 miles from Brazil, Tanzania will put plenty of distance between you and the latest FIFA World Cup results, and with Mount Kilimanjaro to climb, a Serengeti Safari to enjoy, and the sugar white beaches of Zanzibar to relax on, you will have plenty to keep you occupied until 14th July, when it will all be over!
Fiji Islands – Summer 2014
If your idea of the perfect 2014 summer holiday includes island hopping in turquoise waters, sipping cocktails from coconut shells, and dining beachside with the sand between your toes, head to the Fiji Islands this summer, and you will be a whopping 8,373 miles from Brazil and the FIFA World Cup!
Queenstown, New Zealand – Summer 2014
Those looking for an adventure holiday should consider heading to Queenstown, New Zealand this summer for a spot of skiing, snowboarding and fun in the snow! At 7,589 miles from Brazil, New Zealand is far enough to escape the World Cup mania, and as Coronets Peak opens its ski lifts for the 2014 season on 7th June, you can spend your summer on the piste, rather than the pitch!
Philippines – Summer 2014
Finally, if you want to get as far away from Brazil as possible this summer, head on over the Philippines for a spot of fun in the sun on Boracay or Cebu Islands. At 11,996 miles from Brazil, this is about as far as you can get until you start coming back again!
