Winter Holiday Wishlist – Blogmas #14

Welcome to day 14 of my #blogmas series.

Today is all about HOLIDAYS… places I’d love to visit in Winter. Do you have a favourite winter holiday destination? Or maybe you have somewhere you’d love to explore at Winter, i’d love to hear you ideas.  I’ve previously visit Budapest last winter, which I loved ALOT! Just exploring new cities and wrapping up warm, its exciting in itself, don’t get me wrong I love a good sunny holiday where you spend days at the beach and by the pool. My post will incorporate a bit of sun and some snow (it is winter after all)

I don’t know about you, but when I book a holiday I have a LOT of destination in mind… which then get witted down to a couple of favourite places after exploring travel sites and travel magazines/agent visits.

So, whether you are a winter sun lover or a snowy weather guru. I hope you enjoy reading about my Winter Holiday Wishlist.

Winter Holiday Ideas

  • I’d love to explore the Norweigan Fjords, lots of snowy scenery. By sea would be a great way to see a few destinations and living in Southampton has great links to cruises setting sail to Norway. The photography below is just one stunning image I found via a google search (Image is not my own) but what could you not love about this view!

  • When I have children I’ve always dreamt of taking them for a magical trip to Lapland. The home of Father Christmas and his reindeer. It would be a great way to spend a couple of days preparing for Christmas and getting the kids all excited for Santas arrival on Christmas Day. I’d also love to go for a husky ride in the snowy forests. Just look at how magical it would be for a young family.

  • I do love the sun and getting a tan, so some Caribbean sun would be lovely. Whilst everyone is complaining of the cold wintery weather jetting off to Antigua or Barbados would be lovely. Being able to sit in the sun in December/January would be a great way to use up some work holiday along with relaxing after the Christmas rush.

  • I am a big lover of exploring new cities. So a winter city break would be a lovely way to explore a new country, whilst getting away for a few days. I’d love to go somewhere like Stockholm or a log cabin in the French Alps. Being able to still make the most of the city but also explore the cultural weather and sights.


I hope you enjoyed reading my Winter Holiday Wishlist, and it hasn’t made you want to book up a holiday too much!

I’d love to hear you winter holiday wishlist 🙂

    I went to Stockholm last month and to warn you – wrap up really warm and prepare for the cold in winter seasons. At times I wished I was in the Caribbean and not where I was haha. But I recommend for great food (their meatballs and pancakes can’t be off your menu) and for boat trips and visiting the old town 🙂

    Enjoyed the read! May I ask also how much do cruises from Southampton cost relative to flight and train tickets? I fancy myself going on a cruise one day.

    Really nice post! It has definitely given me inspiration for next year. I would also want to go to Harbin. It’s like a winter wonderland!

    These places look gorgeous. I’ve always wanted to go find the sun during the winter however it would be awful returning home to the cold. It would take some getting used to
