Where To Go In November

Where To Go In November

Cases are up across most European countries, staycation is booming which means our November suggestions are within easy drive from your hometown. Except for two destinations, Mexico has fewer cases and daily flights are operating between London / NYC and Cancun. And of course Scandinavia, where we found a unique Slow Life Hideaway in the Norwegian Fjords.
