SHARING TRAVEL STORIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD
While the calendar may say March today, it is most definitely still winter up here in Copenhagen. And with rare snow falling this week in places like Rome and Nice, it seems it is so there as well. The “Beast from the East” is bearing down all over Europe. Gah. Brrrrr. Here in Denmark, we say it’s “pissekoldt.” That’s really cold. And while you may be thinking of warm tropical escapes or just moving to Australia, why not embrace what winter has to offer?
Prefer a wintery escape that won’t break the bank – why not look to Latvia? Sitting on the Baltic Sea in Northern Europe, Latvia offers wonderful winter fun that won’t cost an arm and a leg. While many hope to see the Northern Lights up above the Arctic Circle or schuss down slopes at swanky ski resorts in the Alps, you can enjoy the season and keep some padding in your pocketbook. In Latvia. We were just there on our winter break and loved it.
WHAT KIND OF WINTER PERSON ARE YOU?
So what about you? Are you one who loves winter and weather be damned it won’t stop you from getting outside doing your thing? Or do you hibernate up with Netflix and hygge and candles and cozy socks, watching the calendar turn just waiting it out? Or maybe you’re the escape artist who beelines for the heat on a beach or a stroll down the boardwalk in the sun? Me? I can do all three. But I’m telling you right now that you might want to pull on your mittens and borrow a muff, because you must come meet the most beautiful snow dogs doing good in the forests outside Riga. I’m sharing more for this week’s travel blog community link up. Where will you take us this week? Time to add your travel post and take us somewhere far away!
