Beautiful Holiday Travel Photos
Glittering angels light up the night sky, as locals and visitors alike browse for crafts, fueled by mulled wine, glazed donuts, and sizzling wursts. This scene plays out at Vienna’s Christkindlmarkt, and for @nodestinations, it’s the perfect place to embrace the holiday season.
Chris and Danika—the couple behind Instagram account @nodestinations—tagged a Vienna photo #howiholiday, answering the call of Travel + Leisure and other Time Inc. publications (including Food & Wine, Coastal Living, Southern Living, All You, and MyRecipes.com) for followers to share images of how they enjoy the holidays.
T+L’s followers have been tackling any winter blues head-on. Whether they’re hitting the ice-blue slopes in Interlaken, Switzerland, like @curiosityandacarryon, admiring the first snow in New York City like @thetaylorgrant, or bike riding under a bright sky in Tulum, Mexico, like @laurenswells, travelers are finding plenty of ways to make merry.
For others, wintertime inspires time in the kitchen, baking seasonal treats. We’d love to sample @gaminecuisine’s selection of apple cranberry pies, fresh cookies, and cups of tea. @littlemirandapiggy bakes for the child in each of us, creating gingerbread Christmas cookies.
Whether you’re surrounded by snow, sand, or baking materials, share your festive photos on Instagram with #howiholiday, and we may add them to this slideshow.
