International calling – what's going on where in November?

International calling is a great way to stay in touch any time of year. But certain destinations shine especially bright in November.

Read on for our guide about what’s happening in November around the world, and make sure you don’t miss out on these event by using low cost international Skype calls or free video calls to stay in touch.

Call London … for Oxford Street’s twinkling lights
London’s Oxford Street is world famous for its shopping – with flagship stores like Topshop Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Liberty of London and Harrod’s all within easy reach. But every November, cobbled Oxford Street becomes a little more charming as its Christmas Lights are turned on. If you’re in London in November or know someone who will be, make sure to use Skype to video call and see those lights glow – all you’ll need is a WiFi connection and Skype for mobile.

Call Germany … for Dusseldorf’s famous Advent Market
Germany’s charming Christmas markets are celebrated the world over. And Dusseldorf’s Advent Market, with its gingerbread houses, horse and carriage rides, open ice rink and crystal ‘Little Star’ market is among the best known and loved. If you’re in Dussledorf in late November, or know someone who will be, why not use Skype to call in full view of those traditional, wood-carved market stalls?

Call New York … for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
From inflatable turkeys, flying Kermit the Frog, to baton throwing, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has it all. And you can share it – and some festive spirit – with your loved ones, by using Skype to call right from the sidewalk on November 24.

Call Italy … for the Venice Biennale
The Venice Biennale ends on November 27, so be sure to sneak in a Skype call – and catch sight of the city’s famous sinking steps, gondolas, cathedrals, palaces and works of art – before the closing day carnival celebrations.

Call Scotland … for St Andrew’s Day
Whether you or someone you know will be by the heather-tipped Highlands, beside famous lochs or by Edinburgh Castle, be sure to use Skype to call and raise a dram in toast to Scotland and its famous patron saint on November 30th – St Andrews’ Day.
