When we think about tropical all-inclusive holidays, it's often done with the filter of escaping from another one of Canada's harsh winters. While that will always be a popular time to hit the beaches down south, it will also always be one of the most expensive times to travel to warmer climates.

Acquired Risk Aversion Syndrome seems to be everywhere these days. That's what I'm calling the tendency of people to get less adventuresome as they go through life. I don't mean to create panic but ARAS is alarmingly prevalent and I keep running into more people who are suffering from it.
