After last week’s deep freeze, Dori Schlampp is doing something many of us have been dreaming about: Escaping the cold for a week in beautiful Belize.

The week after Thanksgiving is lovingly known as “dead week” amongst travel experts. This is because many people — getting off a long weekend of travel — decide to mostly stay at home, which is good news to anyone looking to save money on a vacation.
