DO va­ca­tion like a star

Glamour (South Africa) - - Glamourama -

Grow­ing in­creas­ingly frus­trated that ev­ery­one ap­pears to be on hol­i­day all the time ex­cept for you? Us, too. So cut out those friv­o­lous pur­chases, save up your an­nual leave and treat your­self to these celeb-ap­proved hot spots.

A flight to Ha­vana is like a trip back in time. Vin­tage cars, colour­ful build­ings and a laid­back way of life is what you can ex­pect. Dance to the reg­gae­ton mu­sic in the streets, sip mo­ji­tos out of gi­ant mel­ons and live your best life. Prices in Cuba are rel­a­tively rea­son­able for South Africans, so you won’t have to break the bank. Do keep in mind that wifi is no­to­ri­ously scarce, so leave your work at home.

A beach par­adise right around the cor­ner is not easy to turn down. Ex­plore the ocean beds, get up-close and per­sonal with sea tur­tles in the morn­ing, then trudge through the bush, shoul­derto-shoul­der with ele­phants in the af­ter­noon. Pick up a few Por­tuguese phrases be­fore­hand and im­press the cute lo­cals.

Real talk? The clos­est many of us will ever get to this des­ti­na­tion is a Google search. How­ever, a few years liv­ing off in­stant cof­fee and com­pli­men­tary mints, and who knows… Yacht-liv­ing at its best, the starter-pack in­cludes a kaf­tan, panama hat and a lot of change in your back pocket.
