Planning to go to Fiji.
At last count have been away from home for the past 6 or 7 Xmas/NY period.
You will love New York at Christmas time.

Hi Julie, Never had a cold christmas before? Mucho envy!!!!!! We get them all the time in the UK. I had my first xmas away last year travelling alone it was fine.

Me? I will be in Buenos Aires for Xmas and Asuncion (Paraguay) for the new year. Sounds like we will both have big adventures, Good luck!!

You will love NYC at Christmas....myself, I will be in NYC every week or so during the Christmas season. That is the home base for the cruise ship I work on. I believe for Christmas Day we are scheduled to be in Grenada, and New Year's is out as sea. This is the third year I've been away from home.

I'll be here at home (Montreal) for New Year's this year, although two years ago I was in Auckland over the holidays. My first and only Christmas without snow!

Absolutely no idea where i'll be for either, or even if i'll have any choice in it. Waaaaay to early to know stuff like that.

This is my 3rd Christmas away from Oz, first one was spent in Scotland and last year I was in New York. I'm from Brisbane so the contrast between Christmas there and over here is huge!!!!

NYC is absolutely amazing! I had such a great time there! I'm sure you'll love it! :)

Think I'll be in Austria for Christmas this year but not sure about New Years...
