Looking for some winter sun - but where is the hottest?



I was thinking about squeezing in a late holiday this year - either late November, even December. We have been away already - in April, June and August to be precise - we love our holidays, but the cold weather is making me crave the sunshine again.

When the weather turns particularly cold and unpleasant here in good old Blighty, I want to go somewhere warm again. In previous years, I've been to Egypt and also Tunisia in late December, but in the present climate, I'm not talking heat, I aren't that keen to be honest on either.

I've been to Gran Canaria in early November last year and the weather was great, but have never been this late in the year. Its now swung around to early New Year, and I've been to both Egypt and Tunisia at this time of year - Tunisia is far too cool, but Egypt is pleasant.

So I thought I would take a look at the average temperatures to see if that helps to guide us!
