Spending New Year’s Eve at home every year can get quite boring because you end up seeing the same people and going to the same parties. This means that you should think about taking a trip to a different country in order to experience how they bring in the New Year all over the world.
You might want to choose a major city like Barcelona or New York, which hold a massive fireworks display in order to signal the start of the brand new year. This is an excuse to stay in the city for a few days, shopping and seeing the world-famous sights. You will be able to experience this kind of celebration all over the world if you choose a different capital city for each New Year’s party that you go to.
You might want to experience New Year’s celebrations at a more relaxed pace, away from the hustle and bustle of raucous parties. Samoa, Tonga and The Christmas Islands are some of the first countries that welcome in the New Year. These are beautiful islands that are full of natural beauty. You will be able to witness traditional tribal dancing and celebrations that are unlike anything that you have ever seen before. The celebrations on these islands are much more laid back than those in large metropolitan cities, so you will feel extremely relaxed and happy at the same time.
When you are enjoying New Year’s in a new location, you will be able to try a lot of food and drink that you have never come across before. You will also be able to socialise with people from all over the globe who have decided to celebrate New Year in these wonderful Pacific Islands.
You will be having a great time, but you should also think about buying some travel insurance before you head off to another country for New Year. People will often forget to purchase Travel Insurance when travelling for New Year’s Eve which can be problematic.
You Could Be Driving In An Unfamiliar Country
Lots of people decide to hire cars when they are on a New Year’s trip to a foreign country. This will allow you to see the sights and will be cheaper than having to get expensive taxis all the time. Driving in an unfamiliar country can be something of a challenge because you may be on the opposite side of the road than you are used to. You might also find that people drive unpredictably or the roads are in terrible condition.
This means that you should be especially careful when you are driving around the new city before or after the celebrations have taken place. You should have a full license and you should read about the traffic conditions before you start driving in the new country.
You will also need some comprehensive driving insurance that will cover you if you have an accident. These accidents are common people can become intimidated when they are driving in a completely new environment.
You Might Have A Trip Or A Fall That Requires A Hospital Visit
When you are celebrating New Year’s on holiday, there is a chance that you will be enjoying some refreshing drinks in order to increase the party spirit. You will be able to sample drinks from all over the world, and you will come across flavours that you have never experienced before. You will be able to recreate these drinks when you get back home after the trip has finished.
There is a danger that you might start to feel the effects of these delicious drinks too much. This can lead you to fall over and hit your head or you might twist your ankle painfully. This could potentially ruin the trip for you, and you will need to have your injury looked at as soon as possible.
Medical care for tourists is quite expensive, so you will potentially have to spend a lot of your own money if you do not have adequate medical insurance. You need to make sure that you are fully covered for every eventuality when you are partying abroad on New Year’s Eve.
You Might Develop A Serious Case Of Food Poisoning
Eating the local food is an absolute must, and you will get a lot of enjoyment when you are tasting fresh swordfish in Japan or fresh oysters in the Maldives. The food will add to the memorability of the occasion. However, there is always a risk when you are eating unfamiliar food abroad. You might not be eating food that has been cooked properly, or your body may have an allergic reaction to a local dish that you have never tried before. You should check that the restaurant is clean before you eat there. The best restaurants make sure that their kitchens are visible to the diners so that they can see everything being prepared efficiently in a clean environment.
The best tip when you are eating in a foreign country is to go to restaurants where there are lots of locals eating. You might think that five-star hotels are the best place to eat your evening meal on New Year’s but their kitchens can sometimes be in a state of disrepair, depending on the country that you are in.
You should get some travel insurance that will cover you in terms of sickness or illness when you are on your trip. Then you can happily eat and drink knowing that you will be taken care of should something go seriously wrong.
Your Flight May Be Cancelled
A cancelled flight before your New Year trip could mean that you need to call the whole thing off. You should get some insurance that protects you in the event of the flight being cancelled.
There are lots of different places where you can enjoy the New Year, so you should draw up a shortlist of countries around the world. Then you can get your insurance sorted before you jet off for a great time.
