People take their getaways at numerous times of the year. Summer is popular for getaways since that is the season when everyone get time off from task and school, however vacation spots are also supposed to be at their best during summer! A few getawayers I know, have received the name “snowbirds”, based on their habit of flying to warmer climes, as soon as the weather in their vicinity begins to get cold. These Winter time travellers getaway during winter, since anywhere they go is likely to be warmer than where they live!
Last winter, several “snow bird” friends of mine tied up their correct trip to the Caribbean. Swapping oil heating systems and fireplaces for sunshine and a/c, was the best, they claimed. As usual, they booked their airfares way ahead of time, on an airline with guaranteed perfect Heating and Air Conditioning air quality. The flight was all they had wished for, when they landed, however, they got a legitimately unpleasant surprise. The Heating and Air Conditioning system at the airport was broken, so it was enjoy emerging from lovely a/c on the plane, into an unbearably hot, sweaty, atmosphere.
After hastily making their way to their hotel, my friends were finally able to relax. As on the plane, the hotel Heating and Air Conditioning was honestly working perfectly. That is, until several nights later when a freak storm blew over the island and totally messed up the electrical lines. The hotel did have a backup generator but it was hardly up to supplying that multi-roomed hotel with adequate a/c. The “snowbirds” split their holiday short and flew back into the chilly in a matter of nights.
Occasionally you just can’t win.
