Pinch, punch, first of the month. No, we’re not going around stealing sips of a fruity-based drink, it’s just our way of welcoming in November with another icelolly.com #HolidayChat over on Twitter. This time, the discussion was all about ‘Autumn Holidays’ because, well, it’s autumn. And people are going on holiday. “Ah autumn holidays, now it all makes sense,” we hear you all exclaim.
We were up all night thinking of that one.
Anyway, read on to catch up with the natter and get a dose of seasonal wanderlust.
There was no lack of end-of-year travels, with plenty of you either recently back from trips away or just about to jet off.
Sounds like an awesome-autumn to us!
A1) Rome in 10 days for a quick weekend, then off to the Netherlands and Germany just before Christmas! #holidaychat— Little Miss Katy (@MissKatyEnglish) November 1, 2017
I've been to Split, Dusseldorf and just landed back from Paris today! So sad they're my last trips for the year! #HolidayChat— Kirstyleanne (@kirstyleannee92) November 1, 2017
Just got back from a fortnight in Poland and a mini break in Dublin - I love travelling in Autumn!— Lorna Russell (@thedaychaser) November 1, 2017
The tips arrived in their droves, so if you’ve been struggling for autumn travel inspo, question two has your back…
LA, Morocco, Southeast Asia or India for winter sun. Iceland is also super high on my list but it's a little colder #holidaychat— Emma Inks (@Emma_Inks) November 1, 2017
A2. New York and New Jersey. So autumnal. So very American. #HolidayChat— Seanna Fallon (@SeannasWorld) November 1, 2017
A2) City breaks = NYC, Amsterdam, Rome— Jessica Riley (@thecrownwings) November 1, 2017
Sun = Mexico, Canary Islands, #HolidayChat
The pretty scenery, slightly cooler temperatures and fewer crowds make autumn getaways a popular proposition. That and, well, it’s just another excuse to tick a place or two…or three…or four off the bucket list!
Q3) We often go to Greece in October. We take advantage of the half term when the weather is not too hot for the kids. #HolidayChat— Yorkshire Wonders (@YorkshireWonder) November 1, 2017
The colours! They’re so pretty at this time of the year (the only thing I like about Autumn) #HolidayChat— Katie (@katiexmiddleton) November 1, 2017
A3) Traveling is Autumn is usually quieter and cheaper than other times of year and the weather can still be warm #HolidayChat— Anny's Adventures (@AnnysAdventures) November 1, 2017
The amazing autumn scenery.. Popular places are less crowded than usual... a lot of different festivals taking place in different countries!— Lauren (@lolliestyle) November 1, 2017
*Warning!* Even more incurable autumn wanderlust alert!
Q4: New York I imagine is gorgeous in the autumn with the leaves falling off the trees. If I didn’t live there, London would be beaut!— Han Talbot (@HanMeetsWorld) November 1, 2017
Autumn is ideal for woodland walks during the day and cosy pubs in the chilly evenings. I want to see somewhere like Munich and Salzburg in the Autumn! #HolidayChat PLEASSEEE! pic.twitter.com/iCTFO9woHq— M I C H A E L A (@HeyImMichaela) November 1, 2017
A4: I'd love to go and see my family in Denmark. Good food, lots of nice baked goods and great sights in Copenhagen #HolidayChat— Josh B (@jb_new) November 1, 2017
I would love to do another US road trip or Canada the trees changing colour in the national parks would be stunning. #holidaychat— Emma Inks (@Emma_Inks) November 1, 2017
