As the fall fades away in North America, the cold begins to take hold. In the coldest winter months, it is only natural to fantasize about traveling to the Southern Hemisphere to escape the cold.


If you want to travel to South America, you have a few options for destinations below the equator. Out of all of the countries on the continent, Brazil is the only one for which you need a travel visa.


There are plenty of sights to see all over the continent, from the rain forests and Iguazu Falls National Parks in Brazil and Argentina to the mountains of Peru. There are plenty of ways to spend time and get out of the bitter cold for a bit. If you are a fan of beef, South America has some of the best beef on the planet, so make sure you try it. Make sure you try some locally brewed coffee during your visit, as well.


Consider traveling to Australia if you are not afraid of spiders, scorpions, snakes and other wild animals. Australia is home to some incredible landmarks, including the Sydney Opera House, the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru, the sacred Australian rock formation.


Australia is packed with things to do for all kinds of visitors, from city lovers to nature explorers, there is something to see and do on the continent. Depending on your location, the toughest part about travel to Australia will be the actual travel.


If Africa is more to your liking, consider taking a trip to South Africa. The country is loaded with things to do and see, and is far enough away from the equator to give some temperature reprieve. If you enjoy seeing natural structures, take a visit to the Cape of Good Hope or visit Table Mountain National Park.


No matter where you choose to go, the reprieve from the harsh winter will make the travel worthwhile.
