It is one thing to travel to a new destination and taste its culinary delights and it is another thing to crave for the same delicacies when you go back home. Some destinations in the world are famous for their delicious cuisines including France, Italy, Mexico, Morocco and Spain. Take cooking classes in the destination of choice, enjoy learning about exotic spices, using local products and immerse in a new culture. With the growing foodie culture, culinary tourism and increasing demand for great food, cooking classes are available in most destinations including New York, Mexico, France and even Vietnam. Do not just taste the food and wish for the distinct taste later at home, take the knowledge home with you!


In our opinion, hot tub breaks are one of the more popular things to do on your holidays, especially in cold weather. While most people would rather rush to the next sandy beach during the holiday, relaxing in a hot tub in a tranquil environment is awesomely relaxing. Hot tub breaks are ideal for couples, families and friends; they help improve relationships. As you relax in a Hot Tub, your muscles relax in such a remarkable way and after long working hours; it is the perfect treat for your holiday. If you want to rekindle your romantic life, relax, lose weight or meet new people this holiday, it is time to take a hot tub break.


Golfing is an interesting sport that involves a lot of walking and staying in the outdoors. Though it is not as rigorous as other sports such as soccer or basketball, it is full of benefits such as improving concentration, breathing clean air in the outdoors, exercising and meeting new people. There are many destinations where you can go golfing such as the UK, Turkey (Cornelia Diamond is popular), Spain, Australia, Dubai, France (try Morfontaine) and South Africa. You can combine your golfing holiday with other holiday activities such as sightseeing and cultural experiences.


The reading culture is threatening to become extinct in the near future, with the fancy technological gadgets being released almost by the minute; most people are leaving the books behind. It is sad that even toddlers learn to operate these gadgets faster than they can turn a book page and say ‘A’. However, you can make a difference this holiday and revive the reading culture by going back to the literary classics. There are many books you can read, from fiction to poems that can keep you busy during the holidays. Get into the minds of the great people who wrote the books and improve your language and literally skills.


Languages are a mode of communication in human nature; we express ourselves through languages and expect others to understand. It is confusing to listen or communicate in a language that no one understands. Take a language course this holiday to improve your communication skills, improve your CV and fulfill a lifetime dream. Learning a new language is beneficial in many ways; it exposes you to a new culture, sharpens your mind, helps you meet new people and makes you more marketable in the working world.
