Tis the season to spend all your money on Ryanair and Christmas markets. There's a definite cold nip in the air and, as of this week, all talk has turned Christmas-related so we're officially counting down the days until the big day. With so much happening around this time of year, it's hard to get your head around what you'd really like to do when you finally get those much-needed days off work. Of course, chilling out in front of the fire and stuffing our faces with selection boxes is usually at the top of our list but this year, make Christmas truly special with a trip to a cool destination around Europe. Christmas markets have been popping up around Europe over the last number of years and they just keep getting better and better. The U team have kindly put together a list of some of the best markets around Europe, offering food, trinkets, crafts, hot drinks and - to top it off - one helluva an experience, it's worth saving the pennies to book a Ryanair flight and a cheap and cheerful Air B'nB.
