I can’t believe the new decade is almost a month old. It feels like mere days since we were sitting down to turkey and Christmas puds. It’s that time of year where the nights and morning are dark and gloomy, so to brighten things up we are looking forward to the holiday season. However, we are tired of the same old places, so travel editor Alison has come up with some interesting “swaps” for some of the most well-trodden locations (p36). I hope you find it enlightening. Please do let me know if you have any of your own! Have a great week.
