Here at Coconut Lane we love to travel. Here’s a few of our favourite places to escape to this winter.
Iceland is breathtakingly beautiful and unique. With stunning landscapes and the friendliest of people this really is a perfect piece of paradise. You can gaze at the geezers, visit volcanoes and bathe in the Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon is a spa like no other, you can sip champagne from the swim up bar and bathe in the hot pool surrounded by volcanoes and natural beauty. To find out more visit Blue Lagoon.
If you’re lucky you may witness a display of the Northern Lights, which truly is a mesmerising experience. You’ll have plenty to do in this fabulous country, the problem is fitting it all in!
New York City
If you haven’t been before we think the Big Apple is the place to go! There is so much to do from shopping, to sightseeing to strolling in Central Park. You will be spoilt for choice!
There are plenty of places to wine and dine, you can catch a show on Broadway, enjoy the electric atmosphere of Times Square and explore the iconic landmarks. As Christmas is coming we think it’s the ultimate destination for some festive fun! With Christmas lights twinkling everywhere you go and a good chance of snow you’ll soon be strolling round in a Winter Wonderland!
We hear Berlin is a fantastic place to visit. It truly is an inspiring city full of art, culture, and of course those famous Christmas Markets. There are around 60 markets and they attract more than 600,000 people each year. You can browse the unique handmade crafts, sample the traditional food and sip on a mulled wine or three! This is the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit! Berlin is also famous for its vibrant nightlife with an array of bars, clubs and music venues. There is plenty to enjoy!
If you fancy something a little closer to home there’s some equally amazing getaways!
The Christmas Markets are incredibly popular in this city; in fact it’s won awards for them! There are around 300 stalls which sell handmade crafts, jewellery, clothes and handbags! Of course there’s plenty to eat and drink too! If you fancy staying warm you can visit Cloud 23, part of the Hilton Hotel for a Winter Wonderland Afternoon Tea and festive food and fizz to indulge. The Trafford Centre is great for a spot of shopping too!
This is a fantastic place to feel festive. Set by the spectacular Lincoln Castle and Cathedral, the Christmas markets are a must. There’s plenty of entertainment, food and drink. You can also browse the famous boutiques which sell some quirky and unique gifts. There’s retro and vintage stores too!
Overall we think Lincoln is a pretty place with some stunning scenery.
