Rabat - Winter is well and truly underway and it’s that time of year when we could all do with a break. Hours spent at our desks looking up, visualising a life where we’re sat on a beach, or cutting through the slopes.
Rabat – Winter is well and truly underway and it’s that time of year when we could all do with a break. Hours spent at our desks looking up, visualising a life where we’re sat on a beach, or cutting through the slopes.
But what’s to stop you making that day dream a reality? Millions pack their bags and jet off for a winter break every year to some of the world’s most incredible destinations. So go on, switch off that computer, clear your desk, and head off on an adventure to one of these unforgettable locations…
And you won’t be short of a bit of action in Prague either. Combined with truly stunning winter traditions, the Czech capital comes alive in the snow, illuminating everything from the Christmas markets, to the stunning architecture, to the towering castle that looks over the city.
The city hosts a range of amazing bars and restaurants, whilst the impressive casino scene which brings huge tournaments such as the Eureka Poker Tour to the area is something that has to be sampled.
Adding a touch of class to your evening, you can wile away the hours playing the likes of blackjack and roulette, picking a winner on black 29 and perhaps even earning a big pot to take away with you into the night. Of course, if you’re new to the game you can play for fun or even have a practice on one of the many trusted online casinos before making your mark on the tables of the Casino Banco.
Of course if you’re thinking tropical, away from the cold, then what could be more perfect than cracking open a Red Stripe and sitting on a beach in the Caribbean.
Jamaica is one of the most relaxed nations in the world, and the only sign of winter you’ll see is the remarkable achievements of the bobsleigh team back in 1988. With little rain and temperatures at 30°C it’s the perfect escape from the snow and ice, whilst the month of January is awash with great events.
The annual Jazz & Blues Festival is a chance to sample some of the island’s rich musical heritage with the likes of Bob Marley, Desmond Dekker, and Jimmy Cliff’s inspiration clear to see. That combined with some of the world’s biggest stars – this year sees Mariah Carey and the legendary Charlie Wilson take the stage – makes for a great festival, and a real chilled out weekend.
You may not be able to avoid the snow in Stowe, but it’s certainly a lot more enchanting. The Vermont town is one of the prettiest in New England
The complete opposite to Jamaica, you can enjoy the action of the slopes at Smugglers’ Notch, as well as rock climbing, mountain biking, and plenty of trekking.
It’s a chance to really enjoy the fresh air, and what’s more, you can stay in the Trapp Family Lodge, a traditional European mountain resort run by the family that inspired The Sound of Music. So let the hills come alive and clip on those skis and let the action begin.
Convinced? Well, it could be the perfect time to pack your bags…
