I am here with my favorite article to write when it is October, even when it is almost over! If you say why October, there is actually no special reason. I had just written the same post in 2018 and 2019, even earlier in September, and it was very helpful when planning my travels for the next year. In fact, we did not leave any public holiday or holiday empty.
As everyone knows at times such as holidays and public holidays, tickets are very expensive. Of course, there is a subtle point. Almost all of the airlines open their tickets 6 months in advance or even make announcements. For example, you have seen that summer tickets are announced during the winter months. While there is usually this much time, first make announcements and then campaigns. The striking point is here because they usually (mostly) don’t set a date limit for the first campaign time. So this is exactly the purpose of my writing this article early! You know these dates in advance and you can buy your ticket immediately when there is such a campaign! Because some airlines have date restrictions in the next campaigns – these date restrictions always have date ranges that include official holidays and holidays – it is almost impossible to buy tickets when time approaches.
* 27 September 2018/1 Dollar = 6.07 TL, 1 Euro = 7.14 TL! (When I wrote last year, the exchange rate was like this)
** Today, 17 October 2019/1 Dollar = 5.89 TL, 1 Euro = 6.55 TL
I’m aware of the exchange rates, unfortunately. But I still have not given up my dream of finding great tickets. As I find nice tickets, the campaigns are always on Instagram esrageziy is I share it from my account. If you do not meet the tickets I found, do not forget to open this article and look at the tickets.
We hope you can have one of these dates in your eyes and escape somewhere at least in some ♡
1 JANUARY 2020 – WEDNESDAY
Even if all the holidays on Wednesday are somewhat in between, if you can connect the previous or next days, you have 5 full days. We have never been able to do this from work, but 5 days is a good time for those who can! Unfortunately, I would like to say that it is not possible to find a ticket for those who do not have a plan when the new year is approaching. However, if you have a mind to go somewhere to live the New Year spirit, I have 3 suggestions for you;
Zurich – A little cold, a little expensive, but still, this city where you can feel the level of welfare all around is very nice. For New Year’s Eve, you can choose Rheinfall for glorious fireworks.
Lviv – No visa or passport required. You can still have a good time with the Turkish Lira, the Ukrainian currency, the hryvnia and the night entertainment in the city square, and the tiny Christmas market in the square.
Colmar – The real and I think the best part of Colmar is the Christmas markets. If we do not count that they gather and go everywhere on January 1, you can participate in a fabulous New Year welcome with the markets established in the squares and nearby villages until December 30. (I must warn only about prices because it is so popular!)
January 20 – January 31 (Half Year Holiday in Schools)
6 APRIL – 10 APRIL (Second Term Intermediate Holiday in Schools)
MONDAY (April 24 – May 23): Ramadan is the time when most airlines sell special tickets between these dates. For some, it is good to know the fasting time and not to plan a trip to these times by accident, while for others it is a ticket opportunity. Therefore, I did not want to pass the date of Ramadan in 2020 without writing the dates.
23 APRIL 2020 – THURSDAY
4 days of spring for those who can combine with a Friday when spring comes! If we look at the date I wrote the article, there are 6 months yet, it is not an exaggeration to look for a ticket to 23 April and already somewhere. Especially when Ukrainian Airlines has a price policy such as buy and buy tickets 6 months and 10 months in advance, I will not be able to pass without suggesting places in Ukraine.
Kiev – The capital of Ukraine may be a good option when ready spring is coming, maybe a bit of freezing cold. You can comfortably take the Chernobyl trip, which will not be enough for a few days, when you have 4 days. Of course if you are interested. (It is also important to know that there is still radiation)
Kos island – If you are like those who like to open the sea season in April like us, here is an island proposal very close to Bodrum. For those who say that the water will be cold and I will not swim, Empros Thermi grows in the dark. You can stay in the water as much as you want with the spring water in ice-cold sea water and the sun that does not burn much.
1 MAY 2020 – FRIDAY
Finally, a public holiday that doesn’t compel us to bind anything! A short break will be good with ready spring. There are many places to go to the drug for intention.
Thasos: The popularity of Greece is never ending, it is possible to reach Istanbul by car in 5 hours! Let me wake up from the beginning, summer means high season, high season means herker everywhere! Nevertheless, you can pay 47 euros to get your car up to 15 days of green insurance and cross the border, and you can start off by paying a fee of 25 € to get to the island. If you really still reading, do not forget to fill petrol in Turkey. It is still worth seeing the color of Marble Beach.
Other suggestions are everyone will be the first to think of it, but be it; When you say Cunda Island, Bozcaada, Selimiye, Datça, Antalya… you can either take a flight ticket or jump on the bus; I’m sure there are places near you. It is crowded but lying down is in your hands.
19 MAY 2020 – TUESDAY
It’s the first day of the week that is on leave to avoid Monday syndrome. Would be why not?
Paris – Wouldn’t Paris be beautiful when spring came? Although it is always a popular city, it may be a little quieter city in May and you can enjoy the beautiful Parisian cafes on a sunny day where it is possible to sit outside. It is a really big city to walk, but it is a pleasant city to visit on foot. I would definitely recommend it at any time that suits you. And one of the best places to see the Eiffel Tower is Trocadero Square.
Copenhagen – You looked at our country, the weather was not fully heated, go to the North before getting used to the ready heat! Although there are parts that make you feel like you are returning to the ice age when the wind blows, it can be very nice to sit in Nyhavn and have a drink or even have a picnic. At this point, I would like to mention the overwhelming superiority of the Danish Krone against the Turkish Lira, but I could not pass without suggesting this city of Northern Europe, which I would love to see, despite everything.
24/26 MAY 2020 – RAMADAN HOLIDAY – From Sunday to Wednesday
In 2020, festive holidays, like the previous years, save us from thinking “will they connect the whole week?” Because it does not connect directly. Still, it offers 4 full days Ramadan feast.
Barcelona –Just before spring comes, Spain becomes exquisite. Barcelona is a city full of excursions for days. Whether you plan days from one of Gaudi’s works to another, or from the beach to tapas; I’m sure it will be fine.
Stockholm – I think Stockholm is one of the most beautiful cities in the North, where I traveled for 5 days on a March day and could not finish sightseeing. The weather gets warmer towards the end of May and it would be nice to have a pleasant northern visit when Grona Lund says it opens. As a bonus, it is a city with nice options for a bot hotel experience.
15 JULY 2020 – WEDNESDAY
Now I know that you do not like a holiday in the middle of the week so much, but this is the case. July 15 can be ideal for city trips, just for summer.
31 JULY – 3 AUGUST 2020 – Victim Holiday – From Friday to Tuesday
Since it is not different from Ramadan, it is not possible to go to distant, Asia, America, Africa, but we can continue to go to islands or cities.
North Cyprus – How about going to the motherland for 5 days? Let me clarify from the beginning, they speak Turkish in their sweet dialects and they definitely use Turkish Lira. Besides the 5-star hotel concept, there are many beautiful places to visit and see. It is ideal for those who say that I am horizontal and travel and only your identity card is enough to go to Northern Cyprus. If you are a Turkish citizen and you have a Schengen visa, if you think that I will get my passport, I will go to the Greek side, move away from that thought, because if there is no possibility, you can learn by reading the article.
Amsterdam – In 5 days, I think only a city proposal will be enough! And of course villages next to him. For example, even if you go to Giethoorn, which is a little far from Amsterdam and spend 1 day to visit the places on the road, you still have 4 days for other nearby villages and Amsterdam city center. If you devote it to nearby villages for 1 day, you can spend 3 days full of museums and beer in Amsterdam. Whichever you prefer now.
Chios – How about a nearby Greek island? I think the best part of the islands is always the ferry tickets with fixed prices. If you have a visa, it is sufficient to buy the ferry ticket. Or, to go to one of the islands that apply door visas, it is possible to get a door visa and pass with less effort. Of course, even though such times cause waiting for a few hours of passport order at both customs gates, the other hours you spend will delight you.
Prague What about Prague? Although it is not clear when it will be cold, it may be the right choice since it is July-August when it can be the most merciful. Prague is one of my favorite cities in Europe. When I went in Easter time, it was very cool in the light rainy evenings for a few days. Even though the end of July is not likely to be cool in the evening, it may be good to take a thin shawl with you. You can not walk around the city during the day and perhaps think of every street like me, “How did these houses have survived centuries and remained the same?” In the meantime, it will be very nice to add Budapest or Vienna as it will be 5 days in Prague. My choice is for Budapest!
30 AUGUST 2020 – SUNDAY
29 OCTOBER 2020– THURSDAY
Summer is over, working days are concentrated, the only day that can make us happy as the end of the year approaches October 29. Of course, we have to do it for 4 days with our effort, since it does not automatically connect to the weekend. This holiday offers a nice time frame for those who can see the fall leaves that turn yellow even if the weather gets cold with the effect of autumn or those who say I am the last surface.
Tbilisi: Neither visa nor passport. For those who say how, having a chip ID is enough to go to Georgia. Actually, it is one of the cities where you can have a good time. Tbilisi is a city that is worth visiting with its high quality places opened in recent years, its historical area that has become more tourist-friendly and its local dishes. For those who have 4 days, going to Kazbegi for a day is definitely one of the closest places you can think of.
Milan: So, in this article, I have no suggestions from Italy? Of course it would not be. Another one of my 2-way recommendations for 4 days is Milan + Lake como trail. Milan is a very comfortable city, you can easily visit in 2 days. Como is also a very peaceful lake and settlement. A nice coffee, a little rest may be the preparation for the winter, as the lake peace.
I also made the dates in this article a calendar. the Look You can download.
Let 2020 travel planning begin now!
