It’s winter — my favorite time for travel dreaming!

If you’re still deciding on your next destination, here’s a tip: Find a great local festival and build your trip around that. Festivals are filled with rich tradition, great food, and lots of fun with the locals.

While it can be hard to get tickets for some festivals, most are widely accessible. For the Highland Games, Pamplona’s Running of the Bulls, Bastille Day in Paris, or Munich’s Oktoberfest, your biggest challenge is booking a hotel room well in advance.

I take you along to all of my favorite festivals in my new Rick Steves' European Festivals book, available now at www.ricksteves.com/festivals-book. (And once you have your destination pinned down, be sure to grab a 2018 guidebook at http://www.ricksteves.com/guidebooks.)

Happy travels!
