With only a week left before the new semester starts, you may be wondering what to do before getting back to the grind of papers, exams and all night study sessions. But it’s winter!!! Where can you go during this frozen time of the year?
YOU WON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT EVER BEING OVERDRESSED, AND THERE’S PLENTY OF ACTIVITIES THAT CAN BE ENJOYED IN THE COLD.
Whether you’re into skiing, snowboarding or ice skating—or you’re like me and you’ve never done any of those things but would like to take a shot at them—then these destinations are great for winter break. You can ski in Aspen or stay in your own chalet in the Alps, or get a room at the famous Ice Hotel in Sweden. You can admire glaciers from afar at Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina or climb them in Iceland. And when the cold gets too much, you can take a break and relax in a hot spring or spa. What’s not to love? You won’t have to worry about ever being overdressed, and there’s plenty of activities that can be enjoyed in the cold.
