Why a Winter Holiday is now a must for me

Working in the travel industry outside of blogging, I’m always keeping an eye on trending holiday destinations and try to cram in as many trips as possible throughout the year. Whether it’s a weekend city break or a long-haul holiday to the beach I love to get away from the dreary British weather.

I was recently lucky enough to travel to St. Kitts in the Caribbean with my work and, while it felt a little odd sunbathing in 28 degree sunshine in December for the first time, it was a welcome change from the rain, snow and freezing temperatures in England!

In St. Kitts I stayed at the new Park Hyatt resort, taking full advantage of their swimming pools and beach access, and got to go ziplining through the rainforest as well as exploring the island’s culture and history.

I have always tried to do a beach holiday in Europe during the summer as a break away from work, however, after seeing how great the weather is further afield later in the year I have officially become a Winter holiday convert and will be looking to escape England’s Winter weather in favour of a sunny trip in November or December.

As well as looking at where to travel there is also a fascination in how people book their trips. Do you book it yourself, go through a travel agency, do a self-catering trip or go all inclusive?

For as long as I can remember my family and I have always gone on self-catering or DIY holidays, however, I’m also tempted to try out all-inclusive to take the hassle out of holiday planning and know that all my meals and drinks are covered in the cost.

Holiday Gems offer all-inclusive holidays to destinations including the Algarve, Goa, Malta and Turkey. You can find them here.
