dream christmas destinations


At least a couple Blogmas posts should probably be festive themed!  Thought I’d mix it up a bit from the usual gift guides and well, useful stuff, and share a few fantasy Christmas ideas.  Ie. places I’d want to spend Christmas if it wasn’t just wrong to spend it anywhere but home.  Wrong to me, anyway.  Furthest I’ve ever been on the 25th is my Grandad’s house.  I’m sure there are a million other amazing places to spend Christmas but these are the ones that caught my eye on Pinterest. 🙂


Banff, Canada.  OK so this one just looks absolutely breathtaking, in a way that surely can’t be photoshopped.  I’ve decided the Canadian Rockies are on my ‘must visit in lifetime’ list, and Banff just looks like the cutest quaintest town ever amongst those mountains.  I feel like that’s something we don’t have in the UK – the sense of scale.  Sure, our country is impressive in it’s own way, but nothing is that big.  Banff looks like the kinda place you could feel like you’re appreciating some of the best natural beauty on offer (I sound like a David Attenborough documentary lol) whilst remaining in civilisation.  Don’t wana go too far off the grid when an emergency pint of milk or wine might be needed.


Australia, or just anywhere south of the equator.  Christmas, in summer.  Wtf.  I need to see this madness at some point in my life.  I cannot believe it is real.



Switzerland.   Continuing the mountain theme.  I’ve only been to Zurich airport twice so I don’t really think that counts as a visit to Switzerland, but it just seems like such a lovely, peaceful country.  And so beautiful.  I’ve ‘decided’ I’d quite fancy a city Christmas experience once, but without the manic side of places like London and New York.  Swiss cities look perf.  I’m thinking Bern, maybe?


York, England.  Had to include one place closer to home, didn’t I?  I haven’t even visited York that many times (saw the Queen there once though!) but I just love its adorable historical vibe.  Those Tudor buildings and The Shambles and the man who plays the piano in the street by the Minster – so cute!  Another choice for a city Christmas experience, but one where I can actually speak the language.


Now I’m in one of those moods where I just want to forget about college and everything and just bugger off around the world looking for stunning places to feast my eyes on.  Once again.  I could go on for hours listing destinations.  Girl can dream!

    Banff has hotsprings too! That would be really fun and Christmassy. It will be extra cold and you can get into some hot steamy outdoor bath.

    I would not mind those other places you mention either!
