There’s no denying that January is a pretty miserable time of the year. Christmas is over, the presents are all open, you’ve probably started your New Year diet, and there’s no way any of your resolutions are still going. All in all, pretty shit time of the year. Plus, thank to Christmas and all the bank holidays, you’ve probably been trying to make your December pay last for about 7 weeks. So, yeah, January sucks and to make it worse it sucks for a ridiculously long time.
That’s why you need to get ahead of the curve, plan for your misery, and book a funky, quirky, gonna make all your mates’ jealous holiday for the middle of Jan. It’s the perfect time to head to Antarctica, as it’s warmer with the long days and the penguin chicks and seal pups will all be out and about on the ice. Or, why not try the Galapagos Islands, with the calmer seas and warmer weather making this the best time to visit. Kerala in Southern India is also fantastic for tiger watching during January.
