The Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico is full of adventure, it’s around every corner. Whether you enjoy zip lining, snorkelling, repelling into a cave, exploring an underground river, or following your GPS to a geocache. No, I did not misspell anything, a geocache.
The ‘Romantic Road’ is Germany’s best known and most popular tourist route. In medieval times it used to be a trade route which connected the centre of Germany with the South. Today it covers 350km, meandering along idyllic villages and impressive cultural landscapes, taking you from Füssen, across Augsburg, Donauwörth, Dinkelsbühl, Rothenburg ob der Tauber and finally to Würzburg.
If you’re looking for excitement and adventure this winter look to the French Alps, which are famous for their beauty and access to numerous outdoor activities including skiing and mountaineering, making them a popular holiday destination.
Imagine snow-capped mountains, a bright blue sky, gliding down the slopes, breathing in the fresh mountain air, sitting in a ski hut drinking hot chocolate or coffee with schnapps, then at the end of the day returning to a cosy, welcoming hostel where a delicious dinner awaits you. Wouldn’t that be the perfect winter holiday?
