    New Year is a magical time, and not just because of the fireworks. It’s a time where the whole world comes together to celebrate a new beginning, the chance to take on new challenges and to be inspired, a chance to meet new people and, of course, to travel to new destinations (our favourite part of the new year).

    A great travel experience is about much more than where you’re headed – getting there is just as important as being there.

    Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park is a haven for animals and plant life, and Bisate Lodge, which is located in the natural amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone adjacent to the park, provides guests with the chance to experience one of the most humbling moments in their lives – the chance to walk with gorillas.

    Cuba’s capital city and one of the most exciting cities in the world to visit, Havana has a rich and colourful history which is reflected in its people, buildings and music.

    The B2 Boutique Hotel and Spa in Zurich is houses in a building that used to be a brewery. Its staff will provide you with a warm welcome and share with you the history of the hotel in a way that brings the past alive and gives you an appreciation for its story.

    Every year, cities all over the world are decorated with lights, tinsel and trees bigger than houses. It’s a time of year that brings out smiles, a little silliness and of course, the Christmas markets.
