January always seems to last 10x longer than every other month and everyone’s that little bit moodier – whether it’s down to the cold, lack of sunlight or Dry January, we’re not sure. So it’s no wonder January is one of the most popular months to book a holiday. If you’re not sure where to plan your next trip to, allow us to lend a hand. Passport at the ready…
Home to some incredible views, The Grand Canyon (heard of it?), great hikes and more importantly, cacti.
If beaches are more your scene, look no further than the Seychelles. Pictures don’t do the impossibly blue sea and white sandy beaches justice. Prince William and Kate Middleton also honeymooned in the Seychelles, so if it’s good enough for royalty…
For somewhere a little closer to home, consider Ireland for your next weekend break. When you lead such a busy lifestyle, it’s easy to forget how nice a long walk can be – especially somewhere so picturesque.
Seeing cherry blossoms in Japan has been on our travel bucket-list for a while now and with the country hosting the 2020 Olympics, we’re even more determined to go!
Iceland (and their hot springs) have been the place to go for a year or two now with even Beyonce and Jay Z enjoying a dip in the famous Blue Lagoon. Again, if it’s good enough for royalty…
For years, Parisian women were seen to be the most stylish but Danish girls have swooped in to steal their best dressed title. Luckily, the capital city is just as perfect as their trademark minimal aesthetic – how Instagrammable are these houses?!
When it comes to South American countries, Brazil usually steals all the thunder but Uruguay (the continents smallest country) has equally stunning beaches, carnivals and even a cowboy capital: Tacuarembó.
Bungee jumping and Hobbiton Movie Set (home to the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings) are obvious New Zealand tourist attractions so for a slightly quirkier experience, head to a glowworm cave. Most tours are conducted via boat but if you’re braver than us, opt for the Black Water Rafting tour that includes abseiling, climbing and floating through the caves.
Canada are world-renowned for their stunning scenery; whether it’s the famous Canadian rockies or their crystal-clear lakes. It’s near impossible to make their landscapes look bad on pictures so we guarantee you’ll take at least a couple of shots that’ll be mistaken for a Microsoft Windows screensaver.
Singapore is rapidly becoming one of Asia’s most popular tourist hotspots. The futuristic, Gardens by the Bay is probably it’s most recognisable asset however the country itself is exciting and diverse thanks to the range of different cultures that call it home.
