Detest New Year’s Eve? Escape to 1 of these beautifully remote destinations. Not a party popper in sight!
I HATE New Year’s Eve. No, I mean really HATE it.
I hate the hype, I hate the expense, I hate the hassle, I hate the anti-climax and I hate being forced to have fun.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could run away some place where New Year’s Eve doesn’t exist??
Well the good news is, you can!
Check out these 5 beautifully remote destinations where silence rules and the only counting you’ll be doing will be the stars!
1. Australian Outback, Australia
With Australia’s population concentrated along the main coastal cities, you’ll be pretty safe deep in the Australian outback.
You may run into some sheep shearers in high spirits, oh and there’s that huge sacred rock, Uluru (200 miles from Alice Springs).
Just you the rock and the stars. Beats Times Square!
2. Iditarod Trail, Alaska
A stunning winter wilderness, Alaska is a superb choice for those in search of solitude.
3. Asolo, Italy
A sleepy medieval hill town with no cars! That’s right, no cars.
The locals may well be celebrating with a glass of wine or two but you can rest assured it will be the most peaceful New Years you’ve ever had.
4. Yap Island, Micronesia
A stunning Pacific Island with a culture built on social peace.
Even playing your radio too loud is just not cool.
You won’t find any raucous New Years parties here. What a relief!
5. Gobi Desert, Mongolia
One of the most isolated places on the planet, the Gobi Desert is the quintessential escapist destination.
Any sign of ancient civilizations are long gone.
Your chums for the big night? Perhaps an intrepid hippy or ambitious paleontologist.
Something tells me Auld Lang Syne won’t be on the playlist!
