One of the best snorkeling experiences anywhere is a drift snorkeling excursion in Tahaa, French Polynesia. At the edge of the coral reef, ocean water breaks creating a current through a channel of coral and fish. You truly drift from near the ocean side of the motu down towards a lagoon. This excursion offered by local operators through Windstar Cruises in the area is extremely popular and this video shows why. The aquatic life and experience of the drift is simply unparalleled. It will be a SomedayTrips memory that you will cherish for years. If you are traveling on the 7 or 11-day cruise by Windstar, it should be at the top of your list of excursions if you love the water. We took the 11-day Windstar Cruise and the Tahaa Drift Snorkeling was one of our favorite excursions on the trip. Read more about our fantastic French Polynesia Windstar cruise here.

Every year the city of Alexandria Virginia has a Scottish Christmas Walk Parade. A sea of tartan colors, kilts, dogs, cars and fists full of candy await those willing to brave the cold weather and get out and see the parade. This video captures some of the highlights of the parade. Family clans participate in the parade making one wonder if they all got a along or were enemies in the past.
Many of the Scottish clansmen parade with their bagpipes through Old Town Alexandria as well as more formal bands locally and from cities as far away as New York. This very family-friendly holiday event is a traditional favorite of the community and a great day for travelers to spend the day exploring the charming historic town.
So why a Scottish Christmas parade you ask? In 1749, the city of Alexandria was officially established by three Scottish merchants. The city is also named after the founder John Alexander, who is of Scottish descent. Today, the city continues celebrating its heritage with a weekend of festivities including a tour of historic homes, a children’s tea party, a Celtic Concert and a Christmas Marketplace and Café.
Travelers to Washington D.C. in December should check their arriaval dates to see if this coincides with their planned trip. The parade is in the morning followed by other holiday events that culminate with a parade of boats on the Potomac river. Alexandria VA is accesible from Washington via subway (Metro) or a short cab or Uber ride.

The other is the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise experience which has the option of skiing during the summer.
