With the holidays fast approaching, it’s time to start considering how you plan to spend yours. This year, consider a different approach than the same-old, same-old. Why not consider a trip abroad to see how the rest of the world does the holidays?
Read on for some awesome holiday 2017 trips to consider.
Does anything sound better than waking up for a sunrise stroll on the beach? What about a day spent enjoying watersports on idyllic azure-blue Caribbean waters and an evening of world-class dining while the sun sinks below the tropical horizon? All that and more can be yours in the Caymans. In addition, if you are more of the contemplative type, there are achingly beautiful bike rides and hikes you can embark upon, as well as sightseeing and memorable historic sights to encounter. Oh yeah, and the weather is perfect year-round.
Quebec City, Canada
If you want a traditionally French dose of holiday fun yet you don’t want to leave North America, Quebec City is for you. This proud, historic city in Northern Quebec is charming and beautiful, with amazing culture, food, art, and architecture. It is also old, dating back to 1608, when it was founded by French explorer Samuel de Champlain. The walled city boasts picturesque cobblestone streets and stone architecture, and unlike Montreal, which is bilingual, Quebec City is French — in its business communication, signs, menus and everything else. It might also snow while you’re there, which will make it even more quaint and memorable.
Everyone should experience the holidays in this country, the largest economy in Europe. Whether you choose to go as early as October to experience the overindulgence and deliciousness of Oktoberfest or opt instead to go for the legendary Christmas markets in December, you won’t forget it. Oktoberfest is centered in Munich, and its celebration is one of the largest festivals in the world. There, you’ll find all things beer and be able to taste some of the most delicious ones in the world. The Christmas markets, on the other hand, span throughout the country and offer some of the most breathtakingly beautiful lights displays and gifts in the world. Don’t forget to have some mulled wine, too, to keep you warm as you do your nighttime shopping.
So don’t delay. Do a little research and start clicking your way to a reservation for a holiday trip you’ll truly remember.
