It’s nearly Christmas! Either the happiest time of the year or one of the most stressful – maybe a little bit of both.

Could there be anything more romantic than drinking hot chocolate in front of a roaring fire as the snow falls outside?

Miami is increasingly one of the hippest places to visit.
A big celebrity favourite for New Year’s Eve, Miami sets the standard for the coolest bars, hotels and clubs — all in an iconic art deco style.

An ideal honeymoon gift idea is a pair of bridal Mickey & Minnie ears so you can get a souvenir photo in front of Cinderella’s Castle — you know you want to!
Destinations to avoid in December
What makes travel amazing in December is also what can make it something to avoid: Christmas can be one of the busiest and most expensive times of year.
In particular, the jet set descend on the Caribbean between Christmas and New Year, so if your credit card is already groaning then it might be a place to avoid.
