The World First Wander â The Christmas Special
Welcome to this very special Christmas edition of the World First Wander. After weeks of refusing to give in to the âfestive spiritâ our social media man Tristan has finally given in to the mistletoe and wine. Mind you, heâs recently grown a beard with just a little too much white in itâŠ.
Never mind that thought. Letâs move on straight away with a few Christmas tipples from around the world with @adventurehan. In her post Christmas drinks from around the world she takes a look at a few choice Christmas drinkies. Along with mulled wine and eggnog the post contains some really interesting recipes, including one from Chile.Â Time to shake it upâŠ
If youâve been listening to Christmas songs recently (as if you could avoid them) then no doubt you will have heard âA Fairytale in New Yorkâ a few times by nowâŠ and why not? Itâs one of the best, so I am delighted to let it lead us to our next post from Christine Amorose, who is also known as Câest Christine. The lovely, picture heavy blog Postcard of Christmas in New York City will give you a real taste of Christmas in the Big Apple. Great pictures. Have you got itchy feet yet?
Talking of photography, weâd like to point you in the direction of a new post on the World First Travel Blog now. We have put together a list of ten things you can do to improve your travel photography Â to help any budding David Baileys among you get more from your digital SLR when you are travelling. We hope youâll find something useful in there to help you make even more of those brilliant travel memories.
London next, with a regular on the World first wander, Â A lady in London, who has been wandering around our greatest city admiring the lights. London can be a magical place at Christmas so itâs lovely to see it in its full, illuminated glory in this post, Lady loves Christmas lights.
On the subject of great cities, weâre off to Dublin now with another of our regular bloggers, @heathercowper. She recently wrote 10 fun things we did on a Christmas weekend in Dublin and we love it. Heatherâs blog is always full of good advice and helpful tips and this post is no different. If you are planning a shopping and sightseeing trip to Irelandâs fairest city, have a read of this post.
Before we all take off for the holidays and set off to put up the tree, bake a ham and watch a movie with an elf in it, I thought it might be nice to see what some of our featured bloggers do at Christmas. After all, everyone does it differently, donât they? Elle Rose Williams, in her post My Christmas and New Year traditions lets us into her Christmas worldâŠ and it sound pretty good!
That just about wraps up this yearâs festive selection! Thanks for coming with us and a very merry Christmas to you all.
Finally, a word about the photo above. Itâs our MDÂ Martin RothwellÂ ( who also happens to be my brother) looking most festive just before he disappeared into his office to wrap my present. Hope it’s not a P45.
