As the cold draws in it’s time to shut the curtains, curl up under the blankets and get hot. We’ve searched the whole world (figuratively) to round up some of the best winter warmers from across the globe. So grab a mug and let it snow (drizzle, fog, whatever).

In August, I was lucky enough (along with 5 other STAers) to be given the chance to try 4 different volunteering projects in one week in the Phang Nga Provence of Southern Thailand.

Winter is here and the familiar exodus to the beaches of Corfu begins (and nothing wrong with that – Corfu is beautiful). But if you fancy going a little further afield this year we’ve rounded up six of our top most unconventional winter holiday hotspots.
