10 Destinations to Escape the Winter in Europe

Let's have a look at the ideas:

1# Sri lanka

I'm a big fan of Sri lanka. Visiting this country in February last year was a great decision. I admired its beautiful beach in Mirissa & Midigama, drunk lots of tea & fresh juices and went hiking in Ella. It was a short vacation of 9 days though but a great mix of activities! Check out my travel itinerary!

ACTIVITIES: Swimming, snorkelling, surfing, sightseeing, exploring, hiking, meditation, yoga

BEST TIME TO GO: December to March

2# The Philippines

The Philippines are simply a great idea when you want to run away from winter in Europe! ;) We went in February this year. Imagine perfect beaches, crystal-clear water, colourful fish, yummy food, fresh coconuts and a laid-back atmosphere. A destination we'd recommend to everyone! There are many islands to choose from - Palawan is one of the remote ones and an eye-catcher! A hint: Go to Port Barton.

ACTIVITIES: Swimming, snorkelling, diving, boating, kayaking, exploring, yoga

BEST TIME TO GO: Between November and April

3# Canary Islands, Spain

Although, we prefer less-travelled destinations, we set our feet on the Gran Canaria island. The best decision ever since it has remained one of our favourite travel spots out there. This island is really something special in terms of landscape diversity. Our period of travelling was January. If you need a 7-day itinerary, make sure to check out this blog post.

ACTIVITIES: Hiking, swimming, wave-surfing, wind-surfing, kite-surfing, wildlife-watching, kayaking, exploring

BEST TIME TO GO: All year around

4# Porto, Portugal

If you want to stay in Europe but you still want to catch some sun-rays, then head to Portugal. Porto is a great winter destination if you like sightseeing and all that city stuff :) Alternatives to Porto are Lisbon and Coimbra. Beach lovers - the Algarve region would suit you perfectly ;) I visited Porto this year in February and enjoyed lots of sun and even went to the beach!

ACTIVITIES: Tasting wine, eating Mediterranean food, strolling along the coast, exploring, boating, trip to the Douro Valley

BEST TIME TO GO: During the summer months but winter is great too!

5# Sitges, Spain

Want some Caribbean feeling in Europe? Well, there is a place I've already visited twice so far and it's called Sitges. It's a lovely city, located at the seaside, and only a 40 minute car-drive from Barcelona. The cliffs nearby are impressive, and so is the turquoise water of the Adriatic sea. Get more infos here.

ACTIVITIES: Sightseeing, exploring, shopping, tasting Mediterranean cuisine, enjoying night life, hiking

BEST TIME TO GO: Just before or after the summer months but winter is great too!

6# Zadar, Croatia

Why not exploring the Dalmatian coastline of Croatia? We spent some lovely days in Zadar around the New Year's Eve in this cool apartment! Have a look! The weather was perfect, so we strolled down the streets of the old town, checked out the coast and even made it to the National Park called Paklenica to do some hiking! What a great winter escape!

7# Puerto Rico

Nothing new - the Caribbean islands during Europe's winter are a great escape! One of the islands, I was able to visit this year, was Puerto Rico. Although, I've written down my thoughts on the things I liked and things I didn't like, I'm much aware of its difficult situation after the latest hit of the hurricane. I do think its beaches are out of this world (Luquillo beach, i.e.) so make sure to head to Puerto Rico for some beach fun and with this action support its tourism.

ACTIVITIES: Swimming, kayaking, water-ski, jet-ski, national park, zipline, surfing

BEST TIME TO GO: December to April; July to August

8# Yucatan, Mexico

A flight ticket to Mexico is one of the best things you can ever have :) Due to country's largeness its landscape is quite diverse - my favourite part in Mexico is the Yucatan peninsula with its islands: Cozumel and Isla Mujeres. The ocean water is so clear and beautiful and the locals are so so friendly and funny! Definitely a great destination if you want to escape the winter in Europe. Here is a list of the top things to do in Mexico.

9# Abu Dhabi, UAE

Another destination for your winter escape out of Europe is Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates). Once there, make sure to visit the majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. We visited it in the evening, which left us even more impressed due to its special illumination. An alternative would be Dubai or an awesome destination nearby -  Oman.

10# South Africa

If you want to escape the winter in Europe, South Africa is a great destination to do so! It will be summer in this country, which means lots of sunny days! The Kruger park with its wildlife, the Blyde river canyon, the majestic Drakensberg mountains and the famous Garden Route with the legendary Cape town are great reasons to choose this country as your winter destination!

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

    Vanessa Edwards (Thursday, 23 November 2023 20:52)

    My name is Vanessa Edwards from Ashburn USA. I never knew people could be so kind, selfless and amazing until DR ISIKOLO helped me with my marriage problems. My union with my husband was not up to a year when we started having problems. It was so frequent that i fell into depression and kept struggling with it and same time, my husband left me and vowed never to return. I didn't know what to do with my life at that point in time. I had to keep searching for help until DR ISIKOLO came to my rescue. After he made due consultations, it was clear to me that my husband's ex lover kept manipulating him so she can have him back. I was told what to do by DR ISIKOLO and with all assurance, i must get the result after 2 days which i complied and he helped me and the result was so amazing. Now my husband is back to me and we are conceiving our first child in warmth and happiness. if you have similar or love problems, Just text him via WhatsApp +2348133261196 or email him via: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com or his website: (https://isikolotemple.com)

    Merit Glitters (Friday, 05 January 2024 21:57)

    Do not invest in any trading platform, there is nothing such as get rich quick, it doesn't always end well. I was also a victim to this kind of scam. An Asian girl introduced me to ibitminers and i got really deep into their shit and all i can say is these scammers are good at what they do. I was allowed to withdraw a little amount which i believed was to build my trust but they sucked me dry and i never got my capital after all was said and done. I lost a ton of asset and when i reported to local authorities i was told since crypto is untraceable, there is nothing they can do about it. I couldn't get any help from them until i contracted the service of a professional ethical hacker. He hacked into the eth wallet address i made payment to and retrieved my stolen crypto and he showed me the transaction history of these scammers, I was in shock.

    Nicolette Elliot (Wednesday, 17 January 2024)

    Hi everyone. My name is Nicolette Elliot I am here to thank great Dr Isikolo for fixing my marital problems. My marriage crashed due to unending problems and difficulties I had with my husband. He left without looking back and I was alone for so many months. His family intervened and still nothing changed. I was wrecked emotionally and lost hope in finding love again because he was everything in a man I ever wanted. Just like so many people, I got to know about DR ISIKOLO when I started searching for help. We discussed my problems at length and he assured me of getting the solution I needed. I had no choice than to comply with his procedures and he didn't delay anything. He did a love reunion bond for me and my husband and the love and happiness we shared was restored and he reached me exactly after 48 hours as DR ISIKOLO promised. He is indeed a wonderful helper and he is trustworthy. if you have any problems, just text him via WhatsApp +2348133261196 or email him via: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com

    A revolution in banking has been brought about by the digital era, with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin taking center stage. But there are also risks associated with this emerging field, the most frightening of which being the possibility of losing digital assets. This is when Osecybersailing and it's team steps in like a shining knight, equipped with the formidable weapon of Bitcoin recovery. My valuable Bitcoin was stolen via a technical error, leaving me hopeless. My dreams were almost dashed by the cold reality of irreversible blockchain transactions. However, there was a ray of hope that emerged from the shadows when I came across Osecybersailing and it's team. Equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and years of experience, their team of professionals painstakingly navigated the blockchain maze, following even the smallest digital traces of my misplaced funds. The fact that my Bitcoin appeared, safe and sound, back in my wallet in a very short amount of time was a credit to their commitment and competence. It restored my faith in the security and reliability of the crypto ecosystem. But my testimony is more than just a celebration of Osecybersailing technical abilities. It also serves as a rallying cry for ethical cryptocurrency stewardship.
    If you find yourself lost in the depths of lost Bitcoin, facebook Account and Whatsapp hacking to check if your partner is cheating, then let Osecybersailing and it's team guide you towards the light of redemption.

    Hello everyone my names are ALEX JACKSON from the UK, I want to use this golden medium to appreciate Doctor Abdul a great spell caster for helping me retrieving back my relationship with my ex lover when he ended and turned back on me for quite a long time now (6 months ago). He performed a spell for me and within 48 hours after the spell had been cast I received a text from my ex saying that he is sorry for the pains and tears that he had caused me and that he will not do such a thing to me again in his life. I was surprised but later accepted him back again. Anyone that is in the same line of problem or different one that wants to contact a spell caster should happily contact Doctor Abdul now on this email address.doctorabdulspellcaster@gmail.com or message him through his Whatsapp +2348108728256
