96 hours in… Reykjavik, Iceland

Back in February 2016 I had the choice to spend my 25th birthday at work, secretly panicking I was officially in my mid 20’s OR in Reykjavik, Iceland? Tricky choice, I know.

As quick as we had decided we were on the plane, off the plane and had arrived to snow and lot’s of it! Out of the airport and onto the coach into Reykjavik… wait… why has the bus driver stopped? Why is he telling us to get off? This is NOT our hotel?

And here’s where my tips begin.

Year in review – 2015

Back to where it all began.

2015 saw the first of our European adventures and the start our 4 day holidays. With only the two holidays abroad this year, first to Norway and then to Sweden, the second part of the year was spent in Edinburgh and Cornwall.

For these two holidays, and many afterwards, you will hear me continually say ‘We enjoyed travelling to x’ and the simple truth is, we did. There has, to date, not been one place we have regretted going to or not found interesting. I apologise now that it will pop up in blogs from time to time but I will try and either use better adjectives or refrain from the phrase.

96 hours in… Scandinavia Pt 2

Continuing our Scandinavian Adventure it seems only right to go in the order we travelled in soo… our next big trip was Gothenburg, Sweden, a beautiful place with so much to see!

Hot chocolates, cafes, tram travelling, park viewing and good food. We packed in a lot in our 4 days, so much so that I don’t know how best to fit it all into this post.

A special mention has to go to the Universeum, which was initially meant as a time filler but ended up being one of the most interesting museums we have been too. You could not only be an astronaut but also visit a rain forest and go back in time to the ice age. I would, without a doubt, class this as a must do!

96 hours in… Scandanavia Pt 1

The first stop on our holiday adventures was Oslo, Norway.

Our first holiday…together. Just me and him. Now they say you don’t know a person until you live with them, well a holiday is considered a crash course.

We had arrived at that point in our lives where you have to start thinking of the future, with plans of growing up and moving in together looming, we thought now is the time to do what we want before we have responsibilities.

About this blog

Where to start…

I had thought about starting a travel blog for a little while, ever since it became more and more apparent that travelling was fast becoming one of our favourite things to do.

We started our mini adventures back in 2015 with our first ever holiday just the two of us, before this we had only been to Ibiza with 7 other friends. This first holiday to Oslo came from the suggestion of Nick, I was just happy to go with the flow after some initial ‘worrier’ concerns. You see my holidays had consisted of ‘sun’ holidays mostly in Spain, Majorca and Tenerife. To me this was my definition of a holiday, the big 3 – sun, sea and a beach. A holiday to Europe had never occurred to me as something I would have been interested in.

I am glad I was so wrong, my whole perception has now been entirely changed. I would now take a four day mini holiday over two weeks in a sun holiday resort.

Welcome Let’s go on holiday

A big and hearty hello to anyone reading this, my first post. I’m going to get straight to the point and try not to waffle on too much… why am I starting this blog? and now?

Over the last few years me and my boyfriend, Nick, have been on a bit of a European tour/holiday indulgence. So far in 2 short years we have visited Iceland, Italy, Estonia, Germany, France, Sweden, Norway and back again while always planning our next trip.
