It’s that time of year when winter seems to be dragging on forever and the never-ending greyness of the world is starting to get us down. Thoughts turn to warm sunshine and recollections of summer days past, and we wonder if it will ever again be warm enough to wear just a T-shirt or a pair of shorts. Around this time of year, it actually can be impossible to remember what warm weather feels like. This is when we turn to magazines, brochures and internet travel sites, looking for pictorial relief from shivering temperatures and chilly drafts. It’s a very good time to start planning the annual break to warmer climes. If recent previous summers are anything to go by, the UK doesn’t hold much promise for sustained summer warmth, so whereas local holidays were previously attractive, the prospect of guaranteed blue skies and hot sunshine is a magnet. For a budget package holiday Tenerife is an ideal place to start looking. Package holidays fell out of favour a little while ago, with the internet making it easier to book everything separately and jet off independently, creating a schedule on the fly and relying on wits and good fortune to fill in the gaps. Just lately, though, packages are finding favour again. Whether it’s because modern life has enough everyday stress that people no longer want to have to think about organising things when they’re on holiday too, or whether it’s simply a budgetary consideration doesn’t really matter. What does matter is that taking a package holiday can be one of the most stress-free ways of getting away from all sense of responsibility and simply concentrating on having a good time. After all, that’s the whole point of going on holiday. You need to unwind and let go of everyday strains, giving the brain time out and much as resting the body. Knowing that all arrangements are take care of by the company organising the package is guaranteed to give you peace of mind. Forget about transfers and flights, forget about shopping or cooking, you can even forget about organising sight seeing tours or day trips out if you choose the right package, since many include those things too as well as taking care of the basics of travel and accommodation. For a really stress-free time away, consider going for an all-inclusive package where all your meals and drinks are provided in with the cost of your holiday. The only extra money you need to take is for pleasure and enjoyment outside your resort. While you’re in the resort you don’t even need to think about carrying cash around with you. Sound like heaven? It is, and for a perfectly pampering package holiday Tenerife is the ideal paradise.
