The last 3 years I've been in SE Asia. Manila, Bangkok and Koh Sichang. Major cities, lots to do, tropical islands and I wished I was at home instead for every one of them. This year I believe I will be in Zhengzhou and wishing I was home again.
Home. Christmas is really boring if you don't know anyone. Everyone is with their families, it's possibly the most boring day of the year to visit a new country.
I would go to Karabala.
The Antarctic. It's summer there now and very beautiful.
