Yes, I do realise I’m a tad early, but being a meticulous planner and an unforgivable keano, I love to get my thinking cap on hella early and snag a great deal in the process.
As I’m fully intending to be in the European vicinity this Christmas and having 3 weeks off of work to enjoy the holidays, I’m kind of in a hurry to get a plan underway and cooking, or at least simmering gently away.
So with a little help from my friends, I’ve been asking:
“Where is the best place you spent new years eve?“
Even though I always say new years is overrated, the mini optimist (somewhere deeeep) inside of me is forever holding out that this year will be killer, the party to end all parties, the one.
These were the top 5 answers from my Facebook friends, these were their suggestions for a NYE to remember.
Top of the list was heading to sunny Sydney to watch the stunning fireworks display on the harbour.
If I didn’t live so far away I would love to experience this sight, I’d quite like to experience a warm New Years Eve and even more so one where you could see in the New Years dancing around on a beach with some tinnies
Known more for it’s beautiful temple tourist traps, I’m assured that this is a crazy place to see in the New Year.
The parties from the local bars spill into the streets where tourists and locals dance through the crowds and on table top together. I’ve also been assured that eating tarantula is great for your hangover.
Yes, sadly I feel a bit ”been there, done that” Really though, there are always a million different ways to spend your NYE in London. So you only have yourself to blame if you didn’t buy tickets to the hottest party in town sooner.
*Top tip* My favourite NYE in London was spent in a friend’s hotel room (Waterloo Novotel) catching up over champagne and then heading out just before midnight to watch the fireworks, with far less people gathered, celebrating on Lambeth Bridge.
Oh and the public transport is free until the wee hours of the 1st of Jan!
The ultimate New Years beach party, I want to get all dressed up in white and shake my flat white ass on Copacabana Beach.
If you’re lucky enough to get to see this spectacle, be sure to drink some local Caipirinhas and get out and mingle with the crowds. Grab a spot on the beach to see in the New Years and soak it up, it looks fantastic.
Supposedly a low key affair compared with lively Rio, most locals spend New Years with family or head out of town. I’ve been told the best ways to spend New Years in BA is by eating some fiiiine Argentinian steak then dancing it all off again at Asia de Cuba.
They also have some pretty great firework displays too, I’m sure you can find a fair few street parties too, if you look hard enough.
Anyone else already planning a NYE escape? Or do you have somewhere equally as amazing that you’ve spent a New Years to remember? I’d love to know!
