    When going to Austria – you must drink Gluwine aka Muled Wine!!!!
    When going to Russia – you must try Sauna and then jump into the snow (in swimsuit)!!! The best time is around New Years, I promise!

  2. Kristen & Siya on November 14, 2019 at 12:18 am

    Which of these destinations do you want to visit the most? I’ll send a virtual high five to anyone who answers below!

  3. Mikeila Li on November 14, 2019 at 12:20 am

    Canmore is within Banff National Park, so you can count the park itself as one destination. That’s totally fine 🙂

    I would add Norway and Iceland to that list, definitely. My husband and I did road trips through both, and they were incredible. We saw the best display of Northern Lights we had ever seen in Iceland, and we hiked a glacier in Norway. Unforgettable experiences. Winter destinations are my favourite. I can’t stand hot places.

  4. Leanne Klauwer on November 14, 2019 at 12:21 am

    I am planning on going to Canada, but in summer since I have no break now Is it still worth it? If I have to believe the pictures it is 🙂

  5. J Silver on November 14, 2019 at 12:21 am

    Hello! I am from Canada, I was wondering how you got to Greenland? Where did you fly to get there? Thanks for the help. I would love to go to Greenland someday, it seems quite expensive to get there..

  6. Sin X Sin on November 14, 2019 at 12:27 am

    Is it expensive in Greenland? Im looking forward to go there this December..

  7. Bumbling Tourist on November 14, 2019 at 12:28 am

    I loved travelling to South Korea in the winter! It was bitterly cold, but there were very few tourists, if any! The snow on the colourful temples was amazing. Hiking in the snow was a highlight too!

  8. NtiChilimuikkunen on November 14, 2019 at 12:28 am

    Welcome to Finland! Here is now winter and snow. Good place visiting here is Inari, Lapland and seenging aurora borealis, Pielpajärvi wilderness church, Ukonkivi etc. 😊❄

  9. John Horton on November 14, 2019 at 12:29 am

    So wait when was the Last time you went to a Destination in the Cold weather?

  10. Boyd Smith on November 14, 2019 at 12:29 am

    I like the ring light reflection in Kristen’s eyes.

  11. Sherelle Wallace on November 14, 2019 at 12:30 am

    I’m Bahamian, lived all my life in The Bahamas. I enjoyed this video, as I truly enjoyed the episodes you recaped. As great a sales person as you are this left me with one thought: No thanks! You go, send me a postcard! 50 degrees Ferinhiet is my breaking point: I’ll spend my winters at home.

  12. Melek Catalina on November 14, 2019 at 12:32 am

    I’m traveling at the moment and I’m in Amsterdam but I got so tired.. I had my tickets booked for Morocco which I paid €6 (2 way ticket haha) but I’m too tired so I’m just gonna go home. Love winter but unfortunately I didn’t bring the right clothes..

    Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius. -Pietro Aretino

  14. Mara Lorca on November 14, 2019 at 12:34 am

    Excellent stuff guys. I’d love to go to Banff, to Vienna, and to Lake Bled in Slovenia (I think that country isn’t talked about enough).

  15. Sabrina Gust on November 14, 2019 at 12:36 am

    Finland has been on the top of my list ever since you uploaded your Finland videos! It looks so amazing! Thanks for the inspiration ❤️

  16. John Mccabe on November 14, 2019 at 12:37 am

    Thanks for your help in winter you should try Melbourne Australia

  17. Portable Professional on November 14, 2019 at 12:38 am

    This travel inspiration was SO needed. I am about to fly home to Canada (tomorrow!) after months of living in Thailand. The stunning footage and funny take on the cold destinations has me… excited! Thank you for sharing and look forward to the next one <3

  18. THE BOHO TRAVELLER by Sydney Zaruba on November 14, 2019 at 12:38 am

    I would love love love to visit Japan in the winter, this year though I am hitting up Iceland, Ireland, and Colorado!

  19. Ben CG on November 14, 2019 at 12:38 am

    Tromso in Norway is on my list for a winter desintation, although I bet it’s gloriously sunny and crisp in the summer. Also worth considering the Scottish Highlands or Copenhagen.

  20. Allegro Assai on November 14, 2019 at 12:40 am

    5:23 Vive les Macarons!

  21. KatrinaSavanah on November 14, 2019 at 12:42 am

    I love Quebec City during the winter time! It’s just absolutely magical.

  22. Alexandros Papaefthymiou on November 14, 2019 at 12:42 am

    Sinaia Romania. Amazing place between mountains, really close to Bucharest (2hr with train) great food and an even greater ski-center!

  23. Lasting Excursions on November 14, 2019 at 12:44 am

    Hi Kristen & Siya , Love this video of yours. My favorite winter destination is definitely Iceland. The waterfalls look extra magical at that time. We also experienced amazing northern lights and ice cave. Those are the two most amazing experiences of my life.

  24. renatwin on November 14, 2019 at 12:44 am

    Apart from the once you said, Norway is a really great winter destination (I might be a bit bias). You can go skiing and snowboarding, and there are a lot of christmasmarkets in nov/dec. And in the northern parts of the country you can see the northern lights.

  25. life2livealways on November 14, 2019 at 12:46 am

    Finland! I want to stay in the glass igloo! 😀

  26. Nino on November 14, 2019 at 12:48 am

    You definitely deserve more likes, views and subscribers… LOVE your channel!!!

  27. Vicky Gélineau on November 14, 2019 at 12:48 am

    Winter is my favorite season!! I love the cold and there is something so pure about snow. I’m from Quebec, so I guess I should visit the rest of Canada before going anywhere else. Canada is so big! Love your channel and all the tips you are giving:) Thank you!

  28. Jason Evans on November 14, 2019 at 12:50 am

    Well first of, thanks for a cooool winter trip top 10 😉 My bucket-list winter destination has always been Canada, cause of the wicked snowboarding spots and the mountains I’ve heard about so many times =) Hey, maybe you could do a gag reel of all your winter destinations that you’ve been, for this christmas?!? =D You must have tons of funny outtakes and stumbling in the snow etc. XD XD XD

  29. Sweet T Travels on November 14, 2019 at 12:50 am

    I just watched a short doc on Longyearbyen, Norway, the Northernmost city in the world. THAT’S where I want to go!

  30. Rikke on November 14, 2019 at 12:50 am

    You should visit Northern Norway or Svalbard!

  31. Emily Mosley on November 14, 2019 at 12:51 am

    How do you cope with the language barrier? Do most Germans know English?

  32. Swr Fun on November 14, 2019 at 12:51 am

    Hey guys, I have been following for about a year. I am nearly 60 years old, and I have travelled a lot around the world, but almost all work-related. I love that you go to places and have experiences that can be life-changing, and that you share it with all of us. By the way, I also renovated an Airstream called the Barbara Jean the Vintage Airstream, after my mom, so I feel we have that good connection. My favorite Winter Destination would have to be the Big Island. You can go to Maura Kea and experience real winter weather, and then in the same day be sipping Mai Tai’s down by the beach. I wanted to know how your lives have changed now that you two are parents.

  33. Lhouse810 on November 14, 2019 at 12:53 am

    I would love to go to Quebec for winter and au carnival! I’ve only been in the spring but still loved it. Why did Santa give dasher and Donner coffee? They were his star bucks!

  34. kia s on November 14, 2019 at 12:54 am


  35. Mara Grace on November 14, 2019 at 12:54 am

    Banff is a place that gave me major emotions. There aren’t a lot of places I would necessarily go back to since I still have much of the world to explore, but Banff is for sure one of them

  36. armywife1-4 on November 14, 2019 at 12:54 am

    Your vlogs from Greenland made me want to go! I’ve watched them 2 or 3 times ☺️ same with Finland hehe

  37. Henkka on November 14, 2019 at 12:55 am

    I live in Finland. I think I would want to go toooo Greenland! Or Antarctica! Remote places seem really exciting to me.

  38. Sally May on November 14, 2019 at 12:57 am

    Been to Finland Germany Slovenia and Austria …all in the Winter
    I’d love to go to Russia and Japan

    You guys should go to lucerne …mt Pilates to be exact it’s amazing

  39. Alicia Una Ryan on November 14, 2019 at 12:59 am

    My hubby & I are going to Canada next year for his 50th birthday & I can’t wait.
    Greetings from South Africa

  40. Mathilde Bourguignon on November 14, 2019 at 12:59 am

    I love winter travel 😀 Going to Sweden this Christmas and I cannot wait! But I have to say that France is also a great destination for winter, the Alps or the Pyrénées are great for skiing. My favourite winter activity is snowshoeing at the full moon to a mountain top restaurant, eating a delicious raclette there and then going back down.

  41. Unsane mind on November 14, 2019 at 1:07 am

    I wish my girl liked snowy places. I love the beach but sometimes I just want to get stranded in the winter weather. Snowboarding is so much fun and there’s nothing like drinking hot chocolate or coffee by a fireplace after you’re done. As long as I have about an ounce of Sour Diesel, a couple smokes, and a half decent place to sleep I think I’m sure we would love it.

  42. Zen Bayno on November 14, 2019 at 1:07 am

    Been to Yuzawa last year and learned skiing there!! 😀 it’s really awesome. I’m currently in Hokkaido with my family – near Sapporo and we’re gonna go to the ski area tomorrow morning 😀 winter in Japan is AMAZING!!

  43. Dessert Geek on November 14, 2019 at 1:09 am

    I really want to go to Vancouver, BC in the winter one day! (There’s this hot chocolate event all over the city during January and February and I keep on not going.) Thank you for the reminder to plan a trip!

  44. Zune on November 14, 2019 at 1:11 am

    Austria, in the south baltic sea; i can’t wait to visit.

  45. Matthew Tasker on November 14, 2019 at 1:11 am

    Having just left Banff, Lake Louise and Canmore yesterday, I cannot agree more with you Kristen. So so good 😁 best week of winter wonderland fun ever ☃️

  46. Karine M on November 14, 2019 at 1:11 am

    Mont-Tremblant ❤️

  47. elizabethdalloway on November 14, 2019 at 1:12 am

    Oh my God!!! I now hate my job because as a teacher I really only can travel in summer. Gaaah! I’m dying to visit Germany, Austria and Canada. All my life I’ve dreamt of a white Christmas, which is impossible if you live in a semi tropical country. Now I guess I’ll have to ask for a special permission next winter and go to one of these! Very inspiring video
