To some, mention a Mediterranean vacation and a vision of cheap, straw-donkey style Spanish package holiday springs to mind. But the region offers a vast amount of different experiences. From the ancient history of Greece and Egypt to the incredible unique landscape of the Canary Islands and the exotic delights of Morocco; whatever you desire, you can find it on the Med and there’s a good chance it will be hot and sunny when you are doing it. So what are you waiting for? Head to the Med!
Some of the most charismatic Christmas markets in Germany can be found at the Munich Christmas markets. This enchanting city comes alive during the festive season when thousands of visitors from all over the world come to experience the local charm and celebrations of one of Germany’s most colourful cities.
With around 20 Christmas markets in the city to visit there are many unique experiences to be found throughout the city for both families and couples alike. With roots that go back to the 14th century, the ‘Christkindlmarkt’ Christmas market situated on the Marienplatz at the centre of the city provides visitors with a trip back in time. Traditional stalls lining the streets sell a mixture of handicrafts, gifts and local cuisine with recipes largely unchanged throughout the centuries. As Munich’s most popular Christmas market, the attraction benefits from a unique entertainment schedule that includes free festive concerts from the balcony of Munich’s Town Hall performed by traditional Bavarian musicians. Be sure to buy yourself a delicious glass of mulled wine to warm your stomach whilst you walk through the market stalls on a cold winter’s night.
Being stuck in the office as the sun beats down outside is a pretty depressing experience. If you take a look out of your window, you may just be able to see couples strolling through the park, or sunbathers relaxing on the beach with a cool, refreshing drink in hand.
Even worse, you may turn your head to gaze wistfully out of the window to find you can see nothing at all. Maybe your office overlooks an industrial estate, or maybe you’re stuck in a basement room with a wall or set of steel steps as your only glimpse of the outside world. All you can do is imagine all the sun-kissed fun going on outside. Maybe an eccentric millionaire is giving out free ice cream sundaes, or perhaps an impromptu waterslide has been set up for everyone’s enjoyment. The possibilities are endless.
