10 Island Paradises We’d Love to Escape to Right Now (PHOTOS)

tropical islandI don't know about you, but I've had a major case of vacation fever ever since the holidays ended. It's absolutely freezing outside. There's snow everywhere. And it gets dark at like 4:30, so day after day, I find myself dreaming about sitting on an exotic island with a tropical drink in my hand, plenty of warm sun on my body, and not a care in the world.

But then I come right back down to reality because I know that jetting off to an island paradise is next to impossible right now, so I'm probably just going to have to settle for taking vacations in my mind. (SO not the same thing, but at least it's something.)

That being said, check out the photos below to see 10 places we'd all probably rather be right now than stuck in this bitter cold.

Come on, take a fake vacation with me for a few minutes. It'll be fun, I promise.

If you could get on a plane and go anywhere right now, where would it be?
