How to have a great holiday during a mediocre summer season
There is a sense that all over Scotland and the United Kingdom, many of us are down and out over unfavourable summer temperatures. After all, we deserve some sun after enduring winter. Funnily enough, it is only some sun that the majority of Europe has received this year. Norwegians who have adapted to extreme climates for hundreds of years, believe that there is no such thing as bad weather, only poor choices in clothing. If we want to combat a poor summer, we could incorporate this way of thinking into our daily lives.
Or we could try more pleasurable options.
Making the most from a summer vacation without the weather
We have learnt that holidays in European destinations, like the in Mediterranean, need to be booked in advance if you want to make the most out of special holiday packages and early bird flight specials. Of course those who have not organised themselves by then, there is no harm looking for late room vacancies or last-minute airline flights.
Tip: Save money by booking a short trip during the weekday. Last minute weekend flights and accommodation are very hard and costly to come by.
Holiday alternatives: Weekend Breaks
If you have left the summer exodus to warmer climates too late, then weekend breaks are one of the best alternatives to take. Check weather forecasts a week ahead to double check if the weather makes it an optimal weekend worth spending away. Websites like Wimdu.co.uk have proved popular choice for weekend breaks, as popular lodging options like B&Bs and hotels are already booked out. They also are a cheaper option for those travelling in larger groups.
