Oh yes.... H-O-L-I-D-A-Y!
When the weather's turned decidedly autumnal, and the cold & miserable winter is looming on the horizon, there's only one thing for it - book a fabulous, all-inclusive holiday somewhere hot! Obviously, this won't be a practical solution for everyone, but if you try to plan ahead and put aside whatever cash you can, it might not be beyond the realms of possibility that while everyone else has their central heating on full blast and are frozen solid simply walking to the car and back, you and your mates could be lounging around under a palm tree, sipping cocktails while letching at fit Spanish waiters! It's certainly something nice to focus on to get you through the misery of dark, damp mornings and even darker, damper evenings.
Even if funds are a little too low to consider such a luxury right at this moment in time, if you enjoy foreign travel and feel in need of some RnR in the not too distant future, there's nothing stopping you from creating a 'holiday fund' which you can stash any birthday and xmas money in, along with any unexpected windfalls. If you shop around you really can find some extremely affordable deals out there. The world is your oyster - so tuck in!
