The year before last, I went to Canada for a quick trip - five days duration – the week before Christmas. We had a day in Vancouver (freezing winds) then an amazing two days in Whistler where I crunched around in the snow and went for a long ride downhill on a 'snow limo' - an unreal experience. We then did the journey from Vancouver to Banff Springs on the Rocky Mountaineer. What a stunning journey through the snow and pristine countryside, and the sight of the mighty Rockies was awesome. I arrived back in Sydney to a heatwave on Christmas eve - where in the world was I? If you are dreaming of something other than a summer Christmas, consider Canada's Whistler for outdoor pursuits and glamorous resorts or perhaps Europe and the charm of traditional Christmas markets in Austria.

P.S. Only 23 sleeps before Christmas.
