96 hours in Tallinn, Estonia Pt.1

Here we are in June and yes, I am writing about Christmas and New Year’s! Here in the UK we have been having glorious sunny and hot weather so it seems an odd time to now be posting about our travels last Christmas… but here we are.

I feel the first thing I should mention is… Nick does not do Christmas. If I get him to participate in anything at Christmas I count it as a win. So when few weeks before Nick announces he is surprising me with a News Year’s Eve trip to Tallinn, Estonia as my Christmas present to say I was shocked was an understatement.

So, work finished for Christmas and week after it’s off to Tallinn!

Some buildings even had music accompanying the light projection which just added to the overall atmosphere.

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.
