Create Your Best Holiday Memories in These 6 Exciting Winter Destinations
01 Nov 2018PLACESBY SweetEscape

Nothing really feels close to how the kids inside of us go crazily excited when the temperature begins to drop — snow will be falling anytime soon! Especially if you live in a country where there are only two seasons, it becomes a part of your bucket lists to visit a country where the roofs get covered with blankets of ice and everything else turns to white.

And because the holiday season has become one of the most convenient time to travel, how about taking that winter wonderland holiday dream to reality? Here are six exciting winter destinations that you may visit for the holidays:

1. Lucerne, Switzerland

Similar to what you see in postcards is Lucerne's impressive mountainous landscape. This place has the best view of Lake Lucerne and a really stunning scenery of the Alps, especially if you'll be taking the Glacier Express from Zermatt to St. Moritz. Don't forget to try the authentic Swiss cheese fondue before you leave!

2. Vienna, Austria

This destination would warm your heart even when it's cold outside. In Vienna, you could go for walks at its city center and go on a little shopping trip in stalls selling food, gluhwein and handicrafts — they are known to have the best Christmas markets in Europe. You may also go ice skating in the gardens of the Wilhelminenberg Palace or go on a weekend ski trip to Hohe-Wand-Wiese.

3. Reykjavik, Iceland

Everyone dreams of taking a sight of the Northern Lights in person, and you could do that in Reykjavik this holiday season. If you are down for adventures, you could also try downhill skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing here. On the 23rd of December, take part in the Icelandic tradition of eating fermented skate and potatoes.

4. Helsinki, Finland

This holiday season, how about a visit to the country where Santa Claus is said to traditionally originate? Feel all Christmasy in Helsinki, also known as the Christmas city, where you could find snow-covered villages, just like in the movies. Local parades happen during the month of December, so don't forget to join the locals and tourists in spreading the holiday vibes.

5. Quebec, Canada

Experience a real winter wonderland in Quebec, where a hotel room made entirely of ice could be found. Take those Instagram-worthy photos at the Old Quebec Christmas village, unleash the inner kid in you at Valcartier Vacation Village, North America's largest winter playground or join their winter celebration as you watch the ice canoe race across the St. Lawrence River!

6. Tromso, Norway

Experience your first snowfall in Tromso, a city located above the Arctic Circle. Aside from the usual snow activities, you could also experience a close encounter with reindeers and dog sledding with the Alaskan huskies. You could also catch the Northern Lights here in Tromso, especially from September to March.

Get your phones ready because in these 6 locations, you'll never run out of beautiful sceneries to capture. Or better yet, take SweetEscape with you on your holiday adventure so we could save those precious moments for you to keep and remember forever.

Preparing Your Summer Body with Andrea Dian
24 May 2019STORIESBY SweetEscape

Some of you health conscious Escapist might worry that this summer holiday might mess up your fitness regime. On the other hand, you really want to enjoy the holiday, with all the experiences (and good food!) that it offers. Worry no more! Indonesian health and fitness influencer Andrea Dian shares her tips and tricks to keep you fit and healthy during this summer holiday, while still actually enjoying your holiday!


1. How Do You Prepare Your Body For Your Holidays?

Actually I do my work outs not just to prepare me for holidays. I view my work outs and exercises as long term health investments. The bonus for me is to have my 'Summer Body' all year long! However, I do some extra preparation if I know that I'm going to the beach for holiday. I eat cleaner and focus my exercises to tone my abs and legs. I also keep myself hydrated and have enough rest.


2. Is There Any Diet Restrictions That You Have For Holiday?

Holiday is the time fory ou to eat everything and anything you want! I don't believe on diet during holiday. However, I still set aside some 30 minutes in the morning for my daily work out. I also prefer to go around my holiday destination on foot! It's a good exercise that you can do without setting aside any special time. Of course, always bring your trusted water bottle with you every where you go so that your body is not dehydrated.

3. Is there Any Special 'Healthy' Food to Keep Your Body in Shape During Holidays?

I would eat one portion of salad every morning. You can make your own dressing to keep it healthy and clean! I myself personally like my salad dressing to be olive oil, lemon, and sea salt. I always drink fruit juices in the morning, and sometimes jamu to keep myself fit and fresh.
