When the temperatures drop, the world can look like a different planet. Ice glosses over lakes with a magical touch. Lodges nestled in the woods ignite with a fire that can warm hearts from miles away. Winter calls for a specific type of travel, and we want to hear about it — whether that be grandiose castles or evergreen nooks and crannies.

In this Thursday’s #PPWinterGetaways Twitter chat, we’re looking to hear firsthand the surprises you have encountered while traveling in the cold across the globe. Show us the ski resort you fell in love with, or the quiet towns that held a new kind of holiday cheer.

Join us Thursday 12/1, at 2pm EST, by using the tag #PassionPassport on Twitter!
