Hot chocolate with tiny marshmallows, gifts under the Christmas tree, waking up to the soothing blow of Christmas songs and not to forget about nostalgic aura of pinewood bestowing festive vibe– Christmas is indeed a blissful time to remember the good old childhood days and relish grand Christmas treats.

shutterstock_541994884One of my fondest childhood memories include baking gingerbread man cookies with my grandmamma and little brother.  This was only time of the year when all kids in the family gather at one place somewhere on rooftop to bake world’s most delicious gingerbread cookies (at least for us) while humming on the tune of great Christmas songs. 

No matter how badly me and my sibling fought over who is gonna taste the treat first but those moments were perfect and still make me excited about Christmas eve. I’ve carried on this tradition with my kids and certainly most of us must be having a lot to say about their Christmas eve experiences.

An Irish Enchantment

Trinity college library in Dublin is where we had our “meet cute”. Walking through the ginormous hall with thousands of books was an indescribable experience but meeting my dream guy there, made it all the more special.

We spent the next few weeks travelling across Ireland together. I don’t know whether it was because I was excited about travelling in another country or because we were at several gorgeous places or simply because of the company I was with, but I just knew that it was all very magical.

Cliffs of Moher was as amazing as it was described by my Irish friends. Jared and I had a great time taking pictures. I got him a Banjo from the Moher Music Shop. Earlier that day he had mentioned how playing the Banjo always made him happy.

Connemara, with breathtaking views at every twist and turn, is, hands-down, one of the most beautiful places in Ireland. We set up our tent at the Renvyle Beach Caravan & Camping Park for two days. Evenings were spent by the bonfire chatting and singing with other campers while Jared played the Banjo. They told us about the legend of the Blarney Stone. That whoever kisses the Blarney Stone is gifted with eloquence and persuasiveness. We just knew we had to go and kiss the stone.

Our walks in the misty mornings of Aran Islands are something that we’ll cherish all our lives. We had breakfast at this cute little café that looked like it was plucked straight out of a fairy tale. Sitting on the rocks, we had a lovely time making up stories about the keepers of the Lighthouse. We almost had to cancel our trip to the Killarney National Park but we’re really glad that somehow, we made it.

The creatures residing there were not as thrilled to see us as we were to see them. I’m really glad that LookUpFare’s Destination Mapping team planned such an awesome trip for me, at such an affordable price. I’m even gladder that I met Jared to share it with. They were very helpful when I wanted them to find tickets for Jared on the same dates as mine.

I had only heard about how beautiful Ireland is and how I need to visit it at least once in my lifetime. Now that I’ve seen just how incredibly charming it is, I know that there will be many more trips in the future. Jared and I are engaged to be married in a month. Guess where we’re going for our honeymoon? Yes, Ireland!

LookUpFare – Ultimate Travel Experience ‘tis Season

We thought what would be more real than sharing the true experience of people associated with us.

So here it is, in her own words, journey of two sisters.

 ‘tis the Season to Be Jolly

tis-the-season-to-be-jollyGrowing up, my sister and I always dreamed of seeing the world. Backpacking across the globe without any cares in the world. We even made a Bucket List of the things we would do when we go on our trips after growing up. Bungee jumping, sky-diving, swimming with the dolphins and what not. However, after Uni, we both got busy with our careers and didn’t really chase our childhood fantasies. I think we all do it at one point in our lives: pack our wonderful wishes in a bag and bury it in a timeline.

travel-experience-tis-season

But one day, out of the blue, my sister called me in the middle of the night, all exhilarated, virtually squeaking and asking me to put my bare essentials in a bag. Ostensibly, we were going for an adventure, genuinely long distance one!

Since time was short, I began searching for travel portals, to find the best option. We found LookUpFare. The affordable prices, different choices for hotels, the travel routes, the car service, everything about them made us even more excited about our trip. We wanted to tick-off ‘watch the Northern Lights’ from our Bucket List. So we chose Finland for our feat. After everything we’ve heard about the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, seeing it for the first time still exceeded our expectation. Not to mention the ease we had while reaching it through car rental service, which was already an add-on we took while booking our tickets.

The resort with all the pretty glass igloos with a futuristic design, surrounded by snow and trees, gave off other worldly vibes making our stay all the more magical.  We thought that sitting on a settee, sipping hot coco with tiny bobbing marshmallows, chatting non-stop was great. But then, the green, pink and blue lights started appearing in the sky making it come alive. Northern Lights had arrived in the sky, like an angel ready to descend the earth. Enchanted!! That’s the only word that could best describe how we felt. For us the year ended with unforgettable memories.

christmas-treeAnd since then, for all the other little adventures we’ve been on, in the past couple of years, we have relied only on LookUpFare. Though we haven’t decided the destination to end this year with some mesmerizing moments yet, but I am pretty sure LookUpFare’s Destination Mapping will help us do it in a jiffy. “Thank you LookUpFare for making me realize my Bucket-List for real.”
