Join our festive travel #LPChat!

#LPCHAT

It’s what many people consider to be the most wonderful time of the year; decorative fir trees are standing tall, twinkling lights are lighting up city streets and the scent of roasted chestnuts (and mulled wine!) is in the air. Yes, 2015 is swiftly drawing to a close and Christmas and the New Year are nearly here!

While traditional Christmas markets pop up across Europe, bbqs are being fired up in Australia and a sprinkling of snow makes New York City as picturesque as ever, we thought it’d be a fitting time to get into the spirit with our next #LPChat on festive travel - whatever holiday you’ll be celebrating.

INTRODUCING OUR CO-HOST

Abigail King of Inside the Travel Lab.

abi

Lonely Planet Pathfinder Abigail King is the face behind Inside the Travel Lab. Having studied neuroscience research and worked as a hospital doctor for 5 and a half years, you could say that Abi has followed somewhat of an unorthodox route to the travel world but has since gone on to visit over 50 countries. She’s gone swimming with crocodiles, interviewed survivors from the Atom bomb and glided over deserts in a hot air balloon. Her latest venture sees her soaking up the festive spirit in Hamburg. Follow her on Twitter @insidetravellab.
