This year will be the first new year’s eve I’m not spending in Belgium. I’m looking forward to visiting my favorite city New York once again and check out the festivities there. On the other hand, I’m not really doing anything out of the ordinary, am I? So I checked with some of my travel colleagues here at TUI in Belgium and they’ve given me 2 travel tips that I wanted to share with you.
First up, something those of you who don’t mind the cold and want to ski as well: a combined trip of 3 days in Krakau, one of the lesser known cities in Poland, and 4 days skiing in Zakopane.
Krakau is a lovely city to get to know and wander around in. Combine your citytrip with a visit to Auschwitz, but don’t miss out on the incredible salt mines!
Then simply take a 2,5 hour bus ride up to the ski slopes of Zakopane! There’s even a jumping hill for the thrill enthusiasts! I mean, isn’t it just stunning?
Not a fan of the cold? Then you might want to head out to the beautiful Balearic island of Ibiza, Spain? I know, this island is mostly known for summer holidays, but why not head up there for new year’s eve? You’ll beat the crowds, temperatures are nice and lovely and you will surely be able to do some great deals on hotels and rental cars!
Head up to Dalt Vila and wander around through the small, cobbled (and carfree!) roads. Just step into a restaurant and enjoy the lovely food! You can’t go wrong. Or head up to one of the smaller towns like San Joan and wander around like a local.
For new year’s eve, I can highly recommend restaurant Yemanja. It boasts of being open 365 days a year and it’s the to go restaurant on that night for famous 3-star Michelin chef Sergio Herman. How’s that for a recommendation? They do serve a mean paella 🙂
