DO or DON’T: travelling in the winter

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The weather is cold and rainy, windy and snowy, there are lights all over the streets and all the houses are decorated. Father Christmas is to be seen on every corner, the shops are full with chocolate treats and tasty bakes, the friends and families are gathering, the celebrations have no end. What you think of, when you hear “winter”? Laughs and smiles and presents, dinners and lunches together. Flawlessness. Bliss. However, sometimes this all is too much. Too much Christmas starting in October, too many songs going on everywhere, too annoying and unpleasant. But in the middle of this cold and chilly season, is it alright to start a trip, to take an adventure?

No tourist, no queues

On this kind of holidays most of the people are being at home with their family and friends. So this means that there is no traffic and not so many people on every corner. And since you might think that this is achievable in August as well, you should admit that in the winter there are no tourist, too. So the museums will be empty, the queues don’t exist and your adventure is so careless.

The cold weather might be a plus

Well, in the hotness of a nice august afternoon, the sightseeing seems like a hell. However, the chilly weather in the winter is perfect for a trip and new adventure.

London

This city is busy, it is international and full of people with different fates and stories. This city is to be visited right now. The Londoners are there, working from 8am to 5pm and the museums, the galleries, the London eye have no queues. You can enjoy all of them with no pressure and then feel the atmosphere of the real city after work time.

Paris

The poets and the writers claim that there is no city more beautiful than Paris in the fall. And we shall admit that those wordy people are completely right. Go there and relish the lovely landscapes and the Parisian chic.

Vienna

What Austrians like indeed is Christmas. They adore it and for this reason this city is festive much earlier than all the others. Go there in the fall break and spend a pre-decembery Christmas with Glühwein and delis on the Christmas markets. Then go in the palaces and travel in time. I bet that you will remember it.
