During my years of living abroad, I had the pleasure of spending the Christmas season in London twice. Dressed to the nines, the city is a bustling, joyous place to be during the holiday season, and it really comes to no surprise to me, at all, that people want to experience it for themselves. During my two seasons there, I had visits from two different friends, my brother, and was living with my partner for one of them.

And, don’t get me wrong, while I would mostly agree and most often be all aboard the tropical train… there’s something to be said about a romantic winter cabin getaway… in the Arctic.
