The Traveller’s Christmas survival guide

Your first Christmas away from home can be a daunting prospect. With the traditions and people that usually make the season special half way across the world and the drizzle frost and snow replaced but sun and sand (or sometimes even more extreme cold) the Christmas spirit can be hard to come by.

So we reached out to the most beautiful, loving, well travelled people we know, our Twitter followers, and asked them for their tips on surviving your first Christmas far from home. If we’re honest most were about booze so we came up with a few of our own to balance the tide. Though if we’re honest most of those were about booze too. What it’s Christmas?!

Our tips!

  • Work at a soup kitchen or other Christmas initiative. It might be the one year you don’t have any other commitments so it’s the perfect time to give something back to the community you’ve found yourself in.
  • If you’re going to the southern hemisphere take fake snow. Or at least the recipe for a snow ball.
  • Hostels will usually organise and “orphan Christmas” – they have picnics with all the lonely folk revellers or cricket on the beach.
  • If you’re Skyping with family back home make sure you set up and test your internet connection and equipment ahead of time – nothing worst than a Christmas day tech meltdown!
Have we missed anything? Tweet us your tips and you could find your name in the Christmas Twitter hall of fame (this blog).
