New Years Abroad

I love to travel over the holidays, particularly New Years. It’s so intriguing to see how other cultures celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of the next. With only a couple of weeks left in 2012, I thought I’d share some photos from a few of my favorite holiday trips. I’d love to see yours!

Positano, Italy. They celebrate New Years Eve with music and dancing on the beach, and a local parade through the windy streets on New Year's Day.

Venice may well ring in the New Year aquatic style. The island can flood badly in the late fall and winter months.

In Buenos Aires, they rip of the calendar from the current year and throw the shreds out in the street putting the past behind them.

In Rio and other cities in Brazil, they love to party. If you want an all-night bash, Brazil's a great place to ring in the New Year.
