Our dream Winter home - going away for Christmas?

Tuesday, 7 November 2017

After a sudden spurt of Family and Friends announcing they are going on holiday to warmer climates this Christmas, my Husband and I found ourselves musing over the idea too.

It turns out that we both agree - we hate the idea - thankfully!

Now don't get me wrong, we love a good holiday soaking up the sun we never seem to see here in sunny Wales, however Christmas to use screams wrapping up warm in your new knitwear while getting a red nose and cheeks from playing in the snow.

After a long chat involving a glass of wine or two, we have decided that the absolute perfect Winter home for us would be in Alaska.

Picture Christmas day like the Wham video for Last Christmas, opening presents from under the beautifully decorated real Christmas tree, next to a roaring log fire. Followed by making snowmen and snow angels in the crisp white snow, hot chocolate in front of the fire to defrost, while the Children excitedly play with their new toys and you all sing along to Christmas songs in the background.

Next up a home made turkey dinner around a huge dining table, lovingly made in the spacious kitchen with an Aga of course! A traditional nap in front of the Queens speech with the Quality Street to follow.

Then after an exhausting day full of eating, drinking and generally being merry, curling up into beautifully luxurious bedding from Julian Charles to watch the Northern lights above as you drift off to sleep - absolute perfection!


How beautiful is this?

I genuinely cant even imagine how Christmas day would work in a country where it is boiling hot! Imagine being covered in sun cream on the beach on Christmas Day, eating a salad for lunch! Now after Christmas would be a whole other story!

Have you ever thought about going abroad for Christmas? What would your dream be?
