Christmas getaways

Some people like to get away during the festive period, whether this be for Christmas day itself or just after. It can be nice to have Christmas at home and then go away for a few days or even for new year. It may be that you decide to go somewhere hot for Christmas. If this is the first time you have done this it is likely to be quite different to any Christmas that you have experienced before.

If you are planning to go abroad then you need to make sure that you have all your documents in place in plenty of time to avoid disappointment. In the run up to Christmas, there are often delays in the post and this could mean that you are not able to go away if you have not got your passport back for example.

Packing for a winter holiday in the sun can be a little confusing as the last thing you may think about doing is getting your bikini and sun cream out. It is easy to forget items such as sun cream, sunglasses and flip flops as they may have been packed away for the winter.

If you are looking for somewhere to go just before Christmas with the kids, then Lapland has to be top of the list. There is nothing more magical than seeing the big man himself in the place where it all happens.
