Travel is one of the only things you can spend money on and it will make you richer. It may be a cliché, but that does not make it any less true. As you travel, you experience, and you see, you feel and you believe. Nothing can have quite the same effect on you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, as travel does. Even when you have seen a lot of the world, it still has the power to take your breath away.
Just as you thought the idea of travel could not get any more exciting, let us throw the idea of seasons into the mix. When you see the world at different times of the year, it can change; it can mean something entirely different. Therefore, if you are planning to arrange your latest travel plans around the seasons, here are the places you should be going to make the most out of each season.
As far as beautiful times of year go, spring has to be the best of them all. The weather is often mild, there is a sense of happiness in the air, and you can fully explore a new place without feeling uncomfortable. If there were a perfect place to visit in spring, it would always be Paris. Even if you have been to Paris at Christmas, the city really does come into itself in spring. With the gorgeous cherry blossom blooming at all corners of the city and the buzz starting to pick up, what could be better than Paris in the spring?
Have you thought about traveling to the Indian Ocean in summer? You might be tempted to take a break in winter and head to The Maldives, and we couldn’t blame you, but what summer holiday could ever beat The Seychelles? If you are looking for a breathtaking destination to travel to this summer, make it an Indian Ocean island. Many places, including The Seychelles, Mauritius and the northeast of Sri Lanka, are best seen in summer, giving you the perfect excuse to plan the summer holiday of a lifetime.
Autumn can be an odd time to travel for some – especially if you are all holidayed out (thank you Indian Ocean Islands) and thinking ahead to Christmas. However, it can be an incredible time of year to travel – especially if you want to avoid the summer crowds. In autumn, experience a slice of real life across the pond and head to New England, USA. You might have to get a visa waiver (official-esta.com for more info), but the views across Boston or the sleep Connecticut towns are simply to die for and totally worth it.
A winter holiday can be appealing for many reasons. Not only do you feel like you need another break when it gets to this time of year, but you can also find that you need something to shake off those dreaded January blues. Instead of hoping on a plane in search of sun, why not enjoy the very best winter wonderland and head to the Alps instead? Nothing beats the snowy views, luxury chalets and relaxing spa days of the Alps in winter.
