Winter Weekends | EGO
With winter on the way and and no sign of sunshine anywhere here in the UK, wanderlust is kicking in and we’re dreaming of jetting off to new places. These winter getaways are gonna get you wanting to hop on the next plane outta here.
Czech out the sights in Prague. The old town literally feels like a real life Arendelle from the film Frozen (where you can be Anna or Elsa). You have to try a Nutella filled Trdelnik from the street food vendors, a traditional doughnut that’s wrapped in a spiral then grilled and rolled in sugar, they are DIVINE.
Stand under the Eiffel Tower for a selfie as it lights up at night, view some fancy wall hangings in the Louvre and visit the Moulin Rouge and recreate your own version of Lady Marmalade. Even take a day trip to Disney to meet all your fave characters. Bring back enough Laduree macaroons to last you the year.
Krakow in Poland is one of the most underrated european cities, super cheap and with fab bars and nightlife make your way to the dancefloor, this one is great for an all gals trip. You can grab a two-course traditional polish meal with a huge beer for the equivalent of about £5.
Smartie pants fact - Buda and Pest are two sides to the city set either side of the river. The side of Buda is historic with castles and the pest side is super modern with amazing shopping and funky ruin bars which are abandoned spaces turned into clubs, full of random pieces of second hand furniture, super edgy back-drop for your insta snaps . The best part though is certainly the outdoor spa baths with medicinal natural hot spring waters where you chillax.
One for all you outdoorsy types that don’t mind the cold. On the coast of Iceland, Reykjavik is full of out-of-this-world landscapes, including geothermal lagoons, glaciers and volcanic beaches. In winter months you can catch one of the 7 wonders of the world, the northern lights. Stop by the flea markets on the weekends to browse and try everything from knits to food.
Everyone needs to visit the Dam once in their lives. Go in October to catch ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) music festival where people come from all over to rave to the world's biggest DJ’s . By day chill in the funky coffee shops, hop on a canal cruise or rent bikes in the park and by night stroll through the red light district, you really won't be disappointed.
