It is Christmas so what better way to celebrate the season then to talk about travel and fun things about the festive season. This year we are going to explore a lot of the different topic around the subject and take of look at different cities, countries and everything in between. The one thing I love about Christmas is the lights and finding a good display abroad always makes me happy. So today I am going to talk about some of my favourites.
If there is one thing this Island can do really well then it is the Christmas lights. They have a lot of tourists at this time of year so they go all out on making sure that there is a lot for them to see. Walking around the city, it is illuminated with so many tiny lights in all different colours. There is a Christmas garden and also a Christmas display by the sea – very impressive.
Angouleme is only a small town but the Christmas decorations are very pretty. We were in the town for a few days before Christmas and one night we went and explored all the streets and alleys with the lights. They were just so pretty – my favourite thing was the bauble chairs and the light display on the town hall. It may be a small place but the lights pack a punch.
When we visited Chicago we stayed in a home rental in Lansing. It was a quaint little area with a tiny little high street with one diner, a bar and a few boutique shops. On Christmas Eve we walked around the local avenues of houses to have a look at the Christmas lights and displays that the houses had done. It was lovely seeing how extravagant some of the houses went. It was a unique experience.
