A crowd favourite during the summer months, the coast takes on a different personality come winter. Think brooding poetry and long, wistful looks from atop a windy cliff. A visit in the cooler months is a true sensory experience. Hear the crash of waves against the shore, feel the sea spray on your skin, taste the salt in the air and drink in the spectacular sunset reflecting off the restless waves.
Those who think the winter landscape bleak have never viewed it from on high. Gazing across the frozen landscape, the gentle stillness, the creeping mists, is an experience like no other. Pause a moment. Drink in that view (along with some hot tea from the Thermos) and capture the true beauty of the season.
Whether you’re exploring frosty woodland or briskly walking off overindulgence post-Christmas, the countryside has a unique character in the winter. The stillness. The quiet. The sun hanging low in the sky making every blade of grass sparkle. It feels magical. And who’s to say it isn’t.
Don your chunkiest knitted scarf, pick up your winter spiced latte and take yourself on an urban adventure amongst the twinkling lights. Enjoy the contrast between a toasty hostel room and a crisp city morning. Lose yourself in art galleries, museums, the best restaurants, theatre, trendy bars, hidden spots, quiet parks and bustling Christmas markets. They’re the places we go to be dazzled, to see fantastical things and to wonder at it all.
