Can a holiday EVER be needed more than the month of January? We are fat and cold and irritated. Spring feels a lifetime away. So here’s one New Year’s Resolution worth keeping: book a trip somewhere magical. It may be long-haul and could be life-changing, or maybe just small and beautiful enough to lift our mood til the trees begin to burst into life again. At this time of year Europe can be beautiful in the snow, and will certainly feel quieter (and cheaper) than in the summer months. Alternatively head the the southern hemisphere, where summer will be in full swing.
