MAGICAL TRAVEL DESTINATIONS DURING CHRISTMAS
Around the world, Christmas is magical. The festive season of joy, love, sparkling llight's and Christmas cheer normally builds us in a jolly happy mood. No matter how busy the year can be, Christmas has always been a time to unwind and relax with friends and family. It's a special time when we wish to be amongst those we love, away from the daily grind and hustle. So what better to spend the Christmas and New Year season in 2018 than travelling overseas and celebrating it with a bang?
Christmas is a wonderful time to travel. While Christmas in Australia is synonymous with the summer heat and swimming pools, you can experience a traditional snow-capped holiday in the Northern Hemisphere where you can reignite that childhood magic of the festive season in countries like Germany, France, London, Austria, Denmark and Sweden.
Head to Switzerland for a ski holiday or London for a snow-covered rooftop and carols by candlelight. Fly to New York and have your Home Alone style movie escapade with the city's Christmas lights against the bright city skyline. Open-air ice skating, Fifth Avenue department store window shopping, there is so much to do while travelling overseas during the Christmas season.
If you feel like experiencing the festive season in a warmer weather that's not Australia, why not fly to the Caribbean or Canary Island?
