WHERE TO GO DURING THE MONTH OF JANUARY













When we plan a trip, we should keep in mind what is the best time to visit the place in order to gain a holistic experience and enjoy it at the most. As we run January, the month opens with a bang for much of the world and the excitement of New Year helps soften the fact that much of the nothern hemisphere is shrouded in cold, damp cloud. New Year’s resolutions can be started by ski trips to Europe or North America. While southern’s Europe temperate climate is also ideal for tennis or a few rounds of golf. The natural world is also sensitive to the seasons, whether cold as in the forests of Poland or warm as in the waters around Indonesia.

Below you will find the best destinations during the month of January for inspiration:
