    Travelling during the end of the year is something special. It is a period that people generally feel more festive and a part of the year that you take a breather, reflect on how the year went and set new resolutions (hopefully weight loss is not on our list again this year). Also, troves of people choose this part of the year to go away to experience a White Christmas, a snowy holiday that no amount of air-conditioning in sunny Singapore can provide that same experience.

    If you are planning for a White Christmas holiday this year, Trafalgar, a leader in European guided holidays is offering travel deals to Europe for those who book early. We must admit that we are not huge fans of guided tours but these deals are definitely worth considering for those who wants a fun and hassle-free trip in Europe.
