New Years Eve… A time for fun, a time for dancing, a time to forget all the troubles of yesteryear and prepare for the best year of your life.

The drinks are flowing, the music is pumping. 5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Suddenly a feeling of disappointment ensues. ‘Was that it?’ ‘Now what do we do?’

Times Square, New York City.

Continue drinking before standing in the freezing cold while waiting for an extortionate priced taxi home only to wake up the next day and instantly fail at all those well meant resolutions. Too hungover to eat anything but junk, too tired to do anything but watch TV and too brain-dead to start ‘that’ novel.

Sound familiar?

Champagne on the beach

Well I am proud to say I haven’t had a New Years like that for a long time, because I know the secret… to a successful, surprising, memorable, brilliant start to any New Year.

Are you ready?? …

Fun NYE times in Thailand

TRAVEL!

It is that simple. When you are on holiday you are instantly somewhere exciting, you are sure to be making lots of memories, you will be celebrating in a different way, in a different place and most importantly you will wake up the next day somewhere fabulous… Starting your new year off feeling, well, FABULOUS!

NYE Vegas style

I have spent New Year in New York, Paris, Las Vegas, Edinburgh, London, The Alps, Thailand… On beaches, up mountains and in world famous cities. And I can promise you I have loved every single one of them, no matter what may go wrong it doesn’t matter because you’re on holiday.

So go on book a last minute trip somewhere exotic and see if it works for you too?

Happy Neeewww Yeeaarrr!

This year I am off to Ghana and will be celebrating New Year on Busua Beach at a jungle party… No doubt making more memories which will be with me forever and starting the New Year off how I hope to continue… Full of adventure!

  2. Oops! I meant to continue that I discovered this tip two years ago and have been in Vegas and Rio the last two NYEs. Rio was unbelievable, has to be done! Am looking for alternatives for this year, may look up the jungle party!

      The list is endless for fun NYE away. I haven’t yet decided where I will be this year. Do let me know if you have any recommendations. Rio is definitely on my list!
