It's frigidly cold here in Boston—the temperature hasn't made it out of the teens as of late—so it really shouldn't surprise you that we've got warm, sunny, tropical (you get the point) locales on our minds. Last week, we wrote this piece on escaping winter in Virgin Gorda. And then it hit us—how do you escape winter if you don't have a passport? Well, your first order of business is to get one. Honestly, we couldn't even live without ours. But that doesn't mean that while you wait, you're limited to the 50 states when it comes to finding a place to thaw out.
