I thought one way to forget about winter was to dream about hot places I've traveled to. Some were so hot and humid, we were miserable. Others were just plain hot. All were fascinating, and I'd go back if the opportunity arose.
If you'd like to escape the freezing temperatures in North America and Europe this winter, think about traveling to one of these hot destinations. You'll love the sun, but will be looking for the comfort of your air-conditioned cruise ship cabin after a few hours (or minutes) outside.
I loved visiting each of these places, but when I started to think of the hottest places I had visited, these seven came to mind immediately. I'm sure any of them would warm us up this winter!
