Eleven Ways to Enjoy Your Winter Vacation

Before you decide what to do on your winter vacation, you need to think ahead. Set aside money. You can start this at the end of your last winter vacation. Even setting aside $20 a week, will add up, and by the time you're ready to escape the cold and snow with a trip or activity, you'll have saved over $1,000. Obviously, if you plan on an exotic trip, you'll need to save more than $20 a week. If you don't have enough money for winter vacation you may regret it when all your friends are filling their days with fun and excitement.

If you are a sporty person:

I'm a very athletic person and winter only adds up to the challenge. I've always loved skiing as a child and I still do. Every year, I make sure that I learn a new winter sport or increase my knowledge in a winter sport I'm familiar with. This year, I am planning to learn more about bobsledding, which I find very intriguing.

If you just want to hang around the house:

I don't really like going outside because of the weather, but that does not stop me from enjoying my vacation. Staying inside does not mean I can't get fit. I use my Wii Fit to beat harder exercises. I also do push-ups, sit-ups and I run on our treadmill. Sometimes, I invite my buddies to goof around in the snow. It's child's play but the fun never ceases to amaze me. When we are pretty tired, I sit around and play video games or read a good book. I even try to polish my drawing skills from time to time.
