Winters are long gone. The chilly breezes and snow turned into the blossom season and now summers are at its peak. Streams have amazing water flow from the melting glaciers and monsoon rains and summer fruits are ripe for you to eat. Even animals have woken up from their hibernation and breeding season have just begun. But a part of us still misses those snowflakes and winter games that we used to play. But just like any season, winters will return in a few months’ time and we will have another opportunity to do things we love which we have missed last time. So for this reason, I am going to write about amazing destinations that we have missed last winters, and to embark on a journey to visit one of them to enjoy fullest.
Make this year’s winter more special by visiting a special place. For me, I personally prefer a place where I can enjoy the sunshine. While the whole world is high in their spirits of throwing snowballs, I will be visiting Kingston, Jamaica and drink my beer on a white sand beach. I have my trip planned out almost half a year in advance because I cannot resist the temptation of leaving my cold town and going to a tropical climate for a few weeks. But you can visit anywhere you like to maximize your winter fun.
