Forget landmarks and museums, I'd drop everything and hop on a plane to...
  1. celebrate New Years Eve in a European capital
    I'm ripping this one right from the pages of a Barefoot Contessa cookbook: rent an Airbnb with a fabulous kitchen, shop for fresh ingredients at the local market, pop out to watch the fireworks and then return home for a midnight meal.
  2. go on a noodle tour of Japan
  3. sip warm beverages and do all my Christmas shopping at Germany's (or Austria's!) Christmas markets
