Winter Sun destinations

Recommended Posts

Anyone know good locations for winter sun?  So far I have thought of tenerife which is hot all year round. But they seem mostly catered for chavy type people. Who spend all their time drinking and clubbing.

Not all of these islands are full of people who are like that. You will find suitable resorts, even in Majorca, Ibiza, Lanzarote.

Egypt would be a good bet, as it stays constantly warm there with long days. I went to Cyprus in November, but it's not so warm there now.

You can look at this:

Tenerife is quite a big Island with a big population. You cannot equate one town of the island with the whole island.

I went to the Northern side of Majorca and it was very nice. The reputation of the island is spoilt by Magaluf, which is a small part of the island.

What you must realise is that these islands are visited by more than the Brits. You'd find more Germans and Russians in a lot of these resorts.

If you want to avoid the Chavs,  pick the resorts that are not populated by them. Certain resorts are more popular with particular nationalities on the same island.

Lol, definitely do NOT go to Marbella or Ibiza. Lol. Marbella was so beautiful but turned to hell on earth in the evening!

But then i went with a bunch of chavvy Indians (who have alot of Money and good jobs but still chavvy) so I deserved it. 

 

Bad sangat. I was the only one who didn't drink or act like a tramp.

Thanks for the advice.  I will try and find a quiet peaceful resort then away from the party goers.  Northern side of majorca.  sounds nice. 

But Germans and Russians I dont mind them.  They must be better the the brits.

or better still look for a self-catered flat or villa , then you will be sure to be closer to the natives and away from the rabble ... Sardinia was nice in this respect , just got back from Brasil and the in-laws ... 32-35 degrees most days  they are southern hemisphere so in their summer, v expensive ticket-wise from 13 dec through to Easter . 

Canary Islands could be nice ...

Went to Lanzarote a few years. Fascinating place.

Canary Islands were formed by volcanoes so geologically it is really interesting.

Only 500 years ago, the Canaries were inhabited by a stone age people called Guanches that lived in caves. 

Would love to go back again.

Tenerife is much more heavily populated, where as Lanzarote is the closest to the African continent.

Technically speaking the Canaries are Africa rather than Europe.

Because it is close by the Sahara, it can get windy.

Lanzarote is predominantly populated on it's east coast because there is a lot of volcanic activity on the west coast, there are like only 3 villages.

There are plenty of Indian restaurants, so there is no worry about getting roti.

Enough of the geography lesson, your holiday is what you make of it. Book it and think of it as an adventure.

Thats amazing alsong as theres plenty of roti in lanzarote. ill be happy. Dont like going long without desi curries. lol

Interesting did not know it actually part of Africa. one thing I like is the location very remote. Hope the weather is okay. Ill being leaving in late January which is like winter time in the Canaries. 

Not sure I would like to go to a village though. I like a bit of action. Not to quiet and lifeless.

Self catered villa.  Sounds good. Maybe I could pack my roti and take it to lanzaroti. 😀😃

Okay enough of that joke .

Always wanted go to Brazil. Amazing rain forests and views. Any suggestions on places to visit? Only place I know is Rio but seems mostly a City type place.

    • It must be leaving everything which carries a higher life form In  it - as an egg is the food of a chick. There are some papers or maybe rehet in punjabi which mentions not eating eggs.  Most of my elders did eat though. I think it is recently it got practised more and you can see why. Eggs contain harmful bacteria these days. You might fall behind in your simran by falling ill. Just my speculation. 
    • A poster in another thread mentioned eggs being off limit.  So I tried researching dietary teachings of Sikhi.  I ran straight into a wall of conflicting information. Some eating meat as long as its not kosher or halal, others eating jhatka meat only.  Still nothing on eggs.  I respect everyone's personal choice, but where do the eggs come in?  
    • The videos you posted are highly disturbing.  But you would get a lot further on this forum if instead of your wording above, in which you seem to say all amritdharis as a group are frauds and fakes, you would say: "There are many frauds and fakes who are posing as amritdharis but are actually patit" If you were to phrase it like that, nobody could object to your statement. The reason you are catching flak is because you made a provocative and arguably false statement.
    • This should be a thread in its own right and be put in the gupt section as a sticky!
    •   I may indeed be wrong, but in my opinion the tuks you quoted above and the ones I quoted above, together, would mean something like this: Guru Sahib is able to remove your sins, yet at the same time, if you commit serious sins (bajjer kurehat) after adopting Guru ji as your guru, a blemish will remain. So, for example, the greatest of sinners (Kauda Rakash, Sajjan Thug) can turn away from their sins and have them expunged through the Guru. But, if after you come to the Guru and commit additional such sins, the blemish will remain. I.e., you should not think that peshi is a game. Take Amrit, commit paaps, do a peshi, then repeat all over again.
