For many of us the idea of going to an all inclusive resort brings up images of a young couple enjoying a Caribbean getaway during the colder months or maybe a family getaway. Living in New England and being subject to advertisements from places like Sandals, teasing warmer weather during winter from all inclusive’s from Jamaica to Cancun has lead me to believe it is mostly a Caribbean or Mexico thing? How about Europe?
If you aren’t to familiar with the all inclusive resorts, the concept is fairly straightforward. When you book your stay everything is included, everything! All meals, all drinks including beer and mixed beverages as well. Many places also include activities such as sailing, tennis, and live shows as well. I have to say that heading off to an all inclusive resort has more of the vacation vibe vs a “traveler” feel to it. Ever got back from traveling and said aloud “I need a vacation”? Then this is it. Sometimes you just want to have fun and leave everything behind, why not leave your wallet behind too. You arrive, put your wallet in your room safe and there it stays while you chill out and indulge into good food and drinks with no bill at the end!
There are plenty of option to choose from if you are Caribbean bound. But what if you wanted to go somewhere different? Especially after you overhear a coworker talking about there upcoming trip to say… St Thomas? How about taking a week getaway to someplace different. Operators such as First Choice offer all inclusive packages to exotic locations across the pond. Spots less known like Tenerife on the Canary Islands of Spain or the Izmir area on the Aegean coast in Turkey. These stunning white sand beaches will rival the beauty of any coast in the world. Sorrento, Italy anyone?! Everyone loves Paris, but everyone’s been to Paris. Turn east when everyone heads south and enjoy a bit of bragging rights. Another great part is airfare outside the summer months can be cheaper to Europe than the Caribbean.
Go some place different, relax, indulge and be the only person in the office who stepped a bit further and experience a lot more. And when you come back to your office you should place some modern pendant lights that way you office will look more comfortable.
