• Escape the winter blues to the world's sunniest spots

    2013-01-16

    If you're feeling the blues of winter, your doctor might give you just the prescription you're looking for: a tropical holiday somewhere sunny and warm. The symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder make individuals feel depressed and lethargic during the cold, winter months, but by taking a trip somewhere where the sun is always shining and the temperature is toasty, they can combat those unpleasant feelings and gear up for spring instead.

    One of the best options for a sunny getaway is Brazil, where even during its winter, temperatures don't drop much lower than 15 degrees Celsius. In the peak of summer, beaches are sizzling and there is often not a cloud in the sky. You can venture here just to get away from the chill or plan a visit during the two major events in the next few years: the 2014 World Cup or the 2016 Olympics, both slated to take place in the bustling Rio de Janeiro.

    Care for a trip Down Under? Alice Springs, Australia, is another prime locale for those looking for a bright sunny getaway. The frontier town boasts one of the country's coolest natural attractions, Uluru, which is a massive red rock that appears even more crimson red against the glow of the sunset.
