New year’s eve- it could be the only time when it’s allowed to take a look at the past and make sure that you succeeded everything that you had in mind for the year that’s just ending. In case there is something left, depending on what it is, maybe you can still do it, if not don’t worry; next year could be the perfect occasion. With all this being said I hope I succeeded in making you take a look on the bright side and adopt an optimistic attitude for the year that is just starting today and with this positive attitude of yours I would like to take you on a short trip around the world to find out which are the most crowded destinations around the world in this time of the year.  I am absolutely sure that wherever you are you will have an amazing time, but believe me we cannot mention every place in only one article. What we can do instead, is at least help you make an idea or a plan for the next winter holiday. Mountain or seaside, take your pick!

So, let’s just take the globe (not the natural size) and make it turn until we stop it with our fingers. The spot we put our finger on is Austria. This beautiful country with amazingly beautiful mountain landscape could be a good idea for spending the end of December and beginning of January. Even though it becomes a pretty crowded destination it still is one of my favorites. When talking about tourism and ski resorts they have a tradition so that your chances of feeling just wonderful here are very high. These days Austria has a lack of snow, just like most of Europe but we are still hoping and keeping our fingers crossed. Considering this, all ski resorts are crowded and the snow machines are working day and night.  I will mention just some of the skiing areas: Zell am See, Kaprun with Kitzsteinhorn glacier, Hintertux with Tuxer glacier, Flatach with Moltaller glacier and some of the very well-known skiing areas Insbruc or Kitzbuhel. The idea is that combing fresh mountain air, snow, fantastic views and winter sports with the new ear’s celebration could be the best idea.

Talking about landscape, on an opposite side we find an exotic place, with turquoise waters and white sand beaches, an ideal place where one could spend the last days of 2013 and beginning of 2014 if you are looking for hot, sunny days. But, there are some spots on the globe that correspond to this description, so we will take a pick and stop in actually two directions: Caribbean Sea and Indian Ocean.

Caribbean Sea is just perfectly situated in the Atlantic Ocean and has a number of islands, one more beautiful than the other. Saint Martin is one of them. Here, you can have a truly delicious wintertime. Not very hot, nice air and the word could be leisure time. It is just perfect in case you decide to reflect on what the year has given you and what do you expect from the new one.

Indian Ocean, another destination that will not let you down, especially because you have so many continents: Asia, Africa, Australia, or even Antarctica. I would go for Asia because Bali will always remain one of my favorites. When I say Bali, I name more than one place on the earth, I name a piece of Paradise. Like so many people say, Bali is a mood, a state of mind, the best energy you would like to feel and take with you for the New Year. If you can’t decide where to go in Bali, I would recommend Uluwatu, southern part of the island. All your question will be answered in our previous articles about this splendid island called Bali.

Well, time for the next destination for spending the winter holiday. Let’s go back to mountains and snow. We will pay very close attention to snow, because this is definitely a very important ingredient when going on a ski holiday. Luckier than the Austrians are Italians these days because they have some fresh snow and tourists there are very happy. I would say that Dolomites area is a very popular one and very known for the skiing World Cup Circuit. We talk about Val Gardena, Ortisei or Santa Cristina. A good ride on the famous slopes always ends with a good après ski party and Italian food. What could be more convincing?

We could just continue to go around the globe and we will never finish in finding a nice spot to spend the end of the year and the beginning of the next one. The idea is that you can find something special wherever you are. We didn’t mention anything about cities for example and there are some crowded ones today. We will have this for the next article and as a preamble I would make a quick stop in Sidney, Australia. They say that the New Year’s Eve fireworks are the best in the world. There are not only the actual people in town watching the pyrotechnics but also at least one billion following on TV channels across the globe.

That being said we wish you a very happy New Year wherever you are, may all your wishes come true, be healthy and happy and as for traveling we promise to give you only the best ideas! Happy New Year!!!
