One of the fringe benefits of a cold and dreary January is that it allows time for researching and planning those wonderful nakations for the upcoming spring and summer seasons. Nothing provides a better distraction from the inclimate weather outside than perusing brochures and websites offering sun and surf thrills. It's comforting and uplifting to remember that warmer temperatures will once again return.
For the one's who prefer the cooler or colder climates, this is also the ideal time to plan those escapes to the Southern Hemisphere. With opposite seasons, it allows the pleasures of winter on a year-round basis. An endless adventure in the snow that eliminates the need for putting away the outerwear and accessories.
