Aching for a getaway? A little mid-winter adventure escape from this cold and slushy snow? How about a stroll around some exotic land or a hike through Asia, Africa or the Arctic?
Whether you’re an avid adventure-getaway-goer or not, sitting on a plane for 15-plus hours doesn’t necessarily sound so, well, enviable. Sure, the end result may be a lush rainforest in Indonesia, but it’s still a lot of work to get there.
