It’s Christmas Eve and I’m off to Zurich! There’s a cheap travel tip for you: flying on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day will often knock a few hundred dollars off your plane ticket. I don’t really mind spending the holiday on a plane. For one, we’ll be flying over the North Pole on Christmas Eve, which is pretty awesome and two, I’ll be landing in Zurich on Christmas Day, which sounds totally spectacular to me.
If I was staying in New Mexico, I’d definitely be bundling up and heading to Santa Fe for the annual Canyon Road Christmas Eve Farolito Festival, a real City Different tradition. A couple of years ago, when my sister and her now husband were here at the Earthship with me for Christmas, the three of us went and though we nearly froze to death, it was a magical experience. Enjoy the photos and Happy Holidays!
Enjoy your stay in Zurich, looking forward to your adventures in the new year. I took your advice and bought the Nat Geo Road Atlas Adventurers addition – we are going to Florida early Jan for 2 months, so can try it out. Merry Christmas.
Oh wonderful! I’m telling you, that’s the single most important road trip tool I have! I won’t leave home without it! I wish they had a European edition! Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
