If being back at work and struggling through January made you want to run for the hills, or the beaches, you are not alone. Post-holiday blues are widely documented and affect many people who spend their days dreaming about their next holiday, rather than getting tucked back into the reality of work.
Imagine exploring the ancient cave temples, tea plantations and idyllic beaches on an 8-day laid-back adventure through Sri Lanka, or hitting the open road between New York and New Orleans on a 7-day overland odyssey. All is possible, although for most of us, facing up to our financial situation after the festive season is more of a priority than booking their next vacation. The Foschini Group Ltd. myTFGworld.com has a novel solution which takes both our bank balance and wellbeing into account.
With a 10% deposit paid before 28 February 2019, you can secure one of seven holidays now, and pay for the rest later.
No more excuses, turn your daydreams into a reality with an epic 9-day journey through the history-steeped landscapes of Jordan and Egypt or spend a glorious week in Cuba (my personal dream) immersing yourself in the history, culture and natural beauty of this colourful Caribbean island. These and other inspiring holiday packages including local trips to Simonstown and the Drakensberg, are all available and very affordable.
Visit The Foschini Group at www.myTFGworld.com and feel those holiday blues disappear with only a 10% deposit. More information on the 7 Deals, 7 Destinations page, or take a look at the details below.
