The summer holidays are over, the kids are back at school, and autumn is just around the corner, and if you are suffering from post-holiday blues, you will be pleased to know that most of us Brits book our trips abroad on the 2nd Monday of September each year – which is now branded ‘Travel Blue Monday’.
Monday 8th September is officially Travel Blue Monday 2015, so you have every excuse to go online, find that perfect holiday, and book your next exciting trip abroad, whether it be an autumn/winter trip to the South African sunshine or a self-drive adventure down under.
Apparently, over 45 percent of us will be looking to get away within the next six weeks – so dire is the thought of a long cold British winter, but the rest of us will be booking our big trip for next year so we have something to look forward to.
If you are thinking of booking your next holiday tomorrow, but have no idea where to go, here are a few ideas to tickle your travel taste buds…
Great scenery, great food, great wine, great choice of accommodations, and great locals – New Zealand is great – and perfect for a self-drive holiday this winter!
It has never been cheaper to visit South Africa than now, so why not treat yourself to a week or two in South Africa’s Mother City this winter. With beautiful sunshine, endless sightseeing activities, and some of the chicest bars and restaurants south of the equator, Cape Town is the perfect place for your next city break.
If your idea of the perfect winter holiday includes breathtaking scenery, fantastic new world wines, and the best steak on planet earth – head down to Patagonia for your next holiday – you won’t be disappointed!
Finally, if you are looking for an adventure holiday for this winter or next spring, now is the perfect time to book that Kilimanjaro Climb you have been dreaming about! With fixed daily departures, you can climb to the Roof of Africa any day you choose – and if that doesn’t give you something to look forward to, I don’t know what will!
