Yes, it’s Christmas once again. Despite what the Mayans allegedly believed, the world didn’t end on the 21st so be thankful you decided to buy those pressies after all.

I know it’s actually Christmas Eve, but that’s when we celebrate here in Norway so there you go. And for those of you who don’t celebrate Christmas, bear with us here – it’ll be over soon and normal service will be resumed.

Speaking of service, we’re taking a break here but will continue to publish content each day – some new, some old, until getting back to business next week. We’ll share a couple of the most popular articles (some of which are nearly a year old now) which you may have missed and add a sprinkling of new stuff too. We’ll cut out the travel news section this week so there will be two daily updates on weekdays instead of three.

Thanks so much for reading and helping us to grown so fast in 2012, here’s to even more travel and fun in 2013!
