The Christmas holidays 2013 are nearly here so where will you be going this Christmas? Are you a die hard party member who stays at home, do you have to travel to see family or do you long to get away from it all?
Here are just some ideas of where you can go to get away from it all for the Christmas holidays 2013:-
Christmas markets are a great way to experience the festivities of the season away from home and there is no reason why the Christmas holidays 2013 should be any different. Many Christmas markets are popping up close to home but why not try something authentic. A couple of years ago I was in Hamburg and was able to experience their great Christmas market. I loved all the handicrafts and Santa passing by overhead. Meanwhile the locals enjoyed mulled wine and typical German bratwurst. I’d love to be back there for the Christmas holidays 2013.
Ah Paris, the city of love and also the most popular tourist spot in the world. Full of character, flare diversity and that certain je nais sais quoi. Whether it being The Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur or just a cruise down the Seine. There is bound to be something about Paris to make your Christmas holidays 2013 ones to remember. In the late 1990s I saw in New Year whilst in Paris; it was certainly a Hogmanay to remember. The weather was cold, very cold. The Seine was frozen over, but who cares? We were in Paris!
Renowned for great shopping and full of fantastic sights New York should be on every jet setters Christmas shoppers list. With the magic of Times Square, The Empire State Building, Macy’s and Bloomingdales it is bound to make a great experience for shopping during the Christmas holidays 2013.
New York is too far? Well stay closer to home with a short weekend break in London. You are bound to get all your shopping needs for the Christmas holidays 2013 and more. Visit the Mecca of shopping on Oxford Street, enjoy the fun and entertainment of Covent Garden. See a show on the West End or visit Queen Liz’s residence at Buckingham Palace.
Find a beach
Are the Christmas holidays 2013 getting you down? You’ve had too much and want to escape? Well why not go somewhere warm and away from the snow. Indulge yourself with time on the beach. You could venture far away to the Caribbean or look on the internet for late holiday deals in places such as Greece or Dubai. Just think how jealous all your friends will be when you come back for the New Year with a fabulous sun tan?
These are just some of the ideas I have for escaping it all. Where will you be going for the Christmas holidays 2013?
