Dreaming of Warm Destinations

by Katie Skrzek

Jan 13, 2022

vacationThe weather in the Northeast has been cold and snowy the last couple weeks. While I love living in a region that has four seasons, I am not the biggest fan of cold and snow. The recent blast of cold weather has me thinking back to warm-weather trips I’ve taken over the years and dreaming of places I’d like to visit.

I visited the Caribbean island in January 2016 when the Northeast was experiencing a terrible winter storm. While I felt bad listening to my friends and family complain about the cold, I enjoyed every minute of sunshine and warm breezes in Antigua.

Tahiti and Bora-Bora
My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon in French Polynesia. It was the first visit for both of us, and we thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing week full of beach time. In Bora-Bora we went on a hike of the interior of the island, which gave us a different experience of the tropical island.

New Orleans
Our honeymoon started with two nights in New Orleans, one of our favorite cities. While July might not be the most ideal time of year to visit weather-wise, we had a memorable time exploring different parts of the city and making stops along the way for ice-cold drinks.

Granada, Spain
I spent a month in Spain during the summer before my senior year of college for a mini study abroad experience. Spain in July is hot! My friends and I beat the heat by taking a trip to the beach in Nerja and eating plenty of gelato.

There are many destinations on my list of places to visit. Of these, some warm-weather spots include Saint Lucia, Arizona, Hawai’i, Turks and Caicos, Costa Rica and the Maldives, to name a few.


Stay warm, everyone!
