The last few days before New Year’s Eve always creepily evolve into the time of the year where we start reflecting what we did and did not do during the last 12 months. More often than not we regret not doing things we had the opportunity to and sadly this often means situations in which we chose not to travel although we had the chance to. […]
During the Christmas time the whole miavia team stays at home with the family. If there is enough snow – and currently we are lucky in Austria – we’ll all spend some time outside to do some winter sports. We realized that all of us will go sledding somewhere with our friends.

In the mornings we eat a kind of warm rice pudding, a lovely and cosy way to start the celebrations. […]
When thinking of Christmas Markets, pictures of Vienna, NÃ¼rnberg, Prague and maybe Salzburg pop up in our minds. The idyllic and Christmassy image of the cute booths standing next to each other, close to a beautifully lighted Christmas tree, a little choir quietly humming "Silent Night" and a few snowflakes covering the ground we are walking on in a fluffy white carpet, gives us the warm feeling of how Christmas time should be like.
