Posted by admin | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 16-03-2011

For many Brits, winter is a gloomy time of year. Making the journey to and from work in the hours of darkness can be a depressing reality, so much so that many people suffer from the aptly named condition ‘SAD’ (Seasonal Affective Disorder). The lack of sunlight often has a detrimental effect on the physical and mental wellbeing of human beings.

There is a way to avoid this however. A light at the end of the tunnel if you like; something to look forward to, to get you through those dreary months. In recent years, it has become increasingly popular for people to escape the harsh winter weather by travelling abroad for a winter break.
