I’ve often thought that the British phrase “On Holiday” sounds SO much more delightful than the American “vacation.” On holiday, to me, is a much more joyful term that connotes celebrating versus vacation whereby you “vacate” from work. I want to celebrate, not vacate!
After the ridiculous amount of ice and snow we have had, I am SO in the mood to go On Holiday. This time of year, I crave sunshine and warmth. (Ok, truth be told, I crave warmth sunshine all year long!) In the U.S., the warmest place in the winter is Florida. I’ve been to Florida a zillion times. A few favorites:
Fort Myers/Marco Island- My fav! Fabulous beach and casual locale. Great shells!
West Palm Beach- Ooh la la- ridiculously nice hotels and glorious oceanfront.
Orlando/Disney- Love, love, love the House of Mouse- we’ve been WAY too many times but for we, the parents, love it as much as the kids.
Miami/South Beach- Glamorous and fun. Strong need for designer sunglasses!
St. Petersburg- Quiet and chic- great beach!
If you are in the U.K., you are sorely in need of warmth and sun right now. I remember my junior winter semester spent in jolly ol’ London. Being a Texas girl, I naturally assumed that college would be cancelled on a snow day. My British brethren laughed out loud as they told me to bundle up and go to school.
For our British friends and readers, I suggest you immediately go to Ocean Florida’s website and book a Holiday to get out of the cold! Their website is here and they can easily book a trip to Florida for you at a host of hotels. I’ve checked out their site and was delighted to see many of my favorite hotels on their list. Also, they have some GREAT last minute air/hotel specials right now at very inexpensive prices. They also can send you on a cruise to ski if you love the cold or to Vegas and Florida! Go book your trip at once!
Enjoy being On Holiday!
