It’s been particularly tough surviving this Northern Hemisphere winter while all my friends and family have been sharing stories of their glorious summer holidays soaking up the sun on beaches in New Zealand. Living in a poorly insulated house through a cold winter in South Korea, has left me dreaming of beautiful beach holidays.
In particular, I’ve been thinking of a winter escape I took to Port Vila, Vanuatu.
The local wildlife was friendly and cute.
The water was so clear that we spent days snorkelling.
The view from our resort was definitely worth writing home about.
The hiking took us to lakes of a colour green I had never imagined.
The cocktails were plentiful and even enjoyed on the beach.
The sunsets were spectacular.
And the whole time I didn’t have to dread going home to my cold house.
