    Some people like to travel rough, with only minimal luggage stuff in a battered backpack, a tiny budget and a taste for adventure. But even the most passionate alternative lifestyle-adept independent traveler will have to admit that she or he has dreamed at least once of stepping into the shoes of luxury travelers – ditch the tiring all-nighter trips, crowded hostels and cheap food, and soak in a spa, sleep in lavish beds and be waited on hand and foot.

    But although five-star hotels and first class flights are still the domain of the rich traveler, even the average tourist can afford some luxury in some great destinations around the world. Here are 5 luxury travel destinations which are actually affordable.

  • Where to travel for some winter sun?

    While winter does have some advantages (snowy duvet days, Christmas, plenty of good food and warm drinks), the endless dark nights and rainy days can get depressing.

    One of the best ways to combat this is a sneaky winter holiday, to explore pastures new and of course get some of that winter sun. Aside from having something to look forward to, a sunshine break in winter is great for your mood, as well as giving you a tan that friends and colleagues will be envious of. But where to travel for some winter sun?

    If you’re going to book a winter sun holiday, you may as well go all the way and organise the trip of a lifetime, fitting in everything you’ve ever wanted to do. One of the best ways to do this is to opt to stay in a luxury villa, to ensure that your time is entirely your own to eat, drink, sleep and explore as you please.

    The image of Charles Hawtrey, Bernard Bresslaw and Sid James driving into a campsite to witness Barbara Windsor and company practicing their aerobics may be a blast from British comedy’s iconic past, but there remain many excellent reasons to ‘carry on camping’ in the UK and in particular, the south-western corner of the country.

    From the quaint country villages and unspoilt verdant countryside of the Cotswolds, Somerset and Hampshire, to the glorious coastal resorts of Dorset, the unspoilt beauty of Devon and the charm, majesty and excitement of Cornwall, south-west England is an area that is truly blessed as a holiday destination. A wealth of exciting opportunities lies in wait for anybody willing to explore this part of the country in a little more depth.
