At one point or another, we have all dreamed about being able to jet off on holiday to somewhere beautiful and tropical. Everyday life in the modern world can be exhausting and when dreaming up where we would all want to go instead, we usually picture somewhere that is the complete opposite from the world that we already know. We all have the fantasy of sunbathing by the blue sea with a delicious fruity cocktail and the feel of the warm breeze on our skin. However, many of us leave this as just a fantasy and we never pursue an adventure to a beautiful tropical location. In the last year, a lot of us were forced to remain within the confinements of our own homes and now that we can head out into the world, what is stopping you from following your dream of heading out into a tropical paradise? The only person that is stopping you is yourself, so break free of your own limitations and head out into the world. Here are some of the best locations for a tropical getaway.
Summer is coming, which can only mean one thing. Sunshine. Sometimes, anyway, depending on where you live and how lucky you are. UK summers can be scorching for one or two days, getting hit by a sudden heatwave and then rain again. By the time Autumn comes we’re left wondering if we’d even had a summer. If you want to get away from those incoming winter blues that autumn can bring after a disappointing summer, then why not fill the october 2021 calendar with some sunny days instead? Here are some suggestions to some lovely, sunny places to help ward off those low winter moods.
AustraliaAustralia is quite an obvious sunny vacation, with the winter season being so hot that they even have a barbecue for their Christmas dinner! October is one of the best months to visit Australia as it’ll still be warm enough to visit the southern beaches comfortably, and it’s during term time so it’ll be cheaper, and less crowded. Or perhaps you would want to visit the Sydney Opera House, where temperatures will be around 21°C for the whole month. You also have a chance to get a peek at some of the wonderful wildlife there, such as the Koalas or Kangaroos.
FloridaFlorida might not seem the more obvious choice at first, but if you happen to have any little ones, you could take them to Disney World there, where the average temperature for your cold autumn October is 20°C. Take them round to see all their favorite princesses, or perhaps go alone and have fun on the array of rollercoasters they have. If Disney isn’t quite what you’re after, there are also Universal Studios with rollercoasters, live shows, and attractions. Or perhaps you could visit the coastline, which will be still warm enough to visit and plenty to explore with over 1300 miles of it.
CyprusCyprus has average temperatures in the low 20s for most of October, lapping up the last of the summer sun, and is the perfect destination to consider if you want something a little more relaxed and laid back. There are many different cities to stay in with lots of beaches and coastlines to laze about on to finish up that tan you started in August. And if sightseeing is more up your street, there’s a lot of old cathedrals and churches still in great condition that you can visit, as well as some beautiful historic sites and landmarks.
TurkeyThe coldest one on the list here with an average of 19°C, which is still much hotter than your average British October which is only 12°C. If you go to Turkey, you could visit the Dolmabahca Palace, an amazing structure built in the 19th century. Or go visit the Kemer alti Market on a beautiful warm sunny day, which has been the heart of Izmir for hundreds of years. There are also many other historic sites and even some History museums around the country as well to learn more about this wonderful country. Or if you want a more relaxing trip, you could visit one of the beaches or take a ride on the trams. There are many different tourist attractions and cities to choose from to spend a lovely warm October. These are just a handful of the places you could go to during October to revitalize yourself before winter sets in and you have to lift the big coat and scarf out the wardrobe again.
With the current state of the world and the continuous management of the pandemic, it looks as though we may all be able to travel again in the next few months. For the mass majority of us, we haven’t been able to leave our own countries for the last year. Within this period, we have all had plenty of time to plan all of the holidays that we want to take and so it is expected that once it is possible, there will be a surge of people hopping on a plane in order to see what the rest of the world has to offer us. This time of not being able to go on holiday has had us all reminiscing about the previous holidays that we have taken. Though we may all have pictures and some questionable memorabilia from our various holidays, it is fair to say that we can all agree that we have never taken the time to collect souvenirs that really represent the countries that we have visited. So now that we will be able to visit other places, we will all want to bring back souvenirs as a means to commemorate our return to normality. Here are some of the signature souvenirs that we recommend that you pick up on your next holiday.
