First of all I know it has been 5 months since my last post, plus leaving you all hanging on part 1 of our Copenhagen trip and not following promptly with part 2! Sorry! I will explain in another post but without further delay here is part 2 of our 96 hours in Copenhagen which was actually a year ago, to the day, this week!
Our first trip of a packed full 2017! Being in October now we have already been away five times (including this holiday) and visited a total of eight countries so it was about time to get back on track and catch up!
As we landed in Copenhagen back at the start of the year, we were greeted with rain… and lots of it. Our first decision in Denmark was how best to get into the city. You can choose between the train, bus or taxi, after a bit of research it seemed the quickest option would be the train.
A quick, short and simple blog post as Me and Nick are currently busy with life in general.
I had seen a few blog posts recently on other travel blogs of their favourite photos from their trips. We may not have been on as many as them but I though… can I sum up our trips into only 5 pictures? Probably not, but I can try!
As I scoured through my pictures and picked my favourite photos I realised a slight theme, I may be a little impartial to nighttime photos and pretty colourful lights. Oh well, it’s whatever floats your boat as they say. To me, they can take me right back to that place and remember everything we did.
So let’s get started…
On our second day in Tallinn, we headed across on the ferry to Helsinki, Finland. It was super easy, having bought our tickets online before we left for Estonia. On the day it was just a case of simply heading down to the port, which we had checked out the day before so we knew where to go.
After fighting our way through the queues to get on the ferry we then saw everyone run off, people were upstairs, downstairs, in the bar, in the restaurant and the window sills. It soon became clear that seating was limited as after 10 minutes it all settled down and many people were sitting (or sleeping) on the floor.
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!
Just a quick search of Travel on Instagram or Twitter and you are bombarded with beautiful scenery, landscapes and far away places.
It is so easy to compare to others on social media, not only for travel, but everything. It is only since starting my blog, that it is hard not to think maybe my posts won’t be funny enough, interesting enough or even seen by anyone.
Will all the hours and effort I have put into my blog be worth it?
With so much to do I felt I had just too much to write about in one post! So here is part two of our trip to Berlin.
Day 3 – The wall
Since my sister had visited Berlin a few years before I had know about the East side gallery, Nick quickly came up with the route and we were on our way.
Wow, just where to begin? Berlin still has to be one of my favourite places we have visited (which I know I say often but its true). Just the sheer scale means that you could never do or see everything in one go.
We were there last October for our standard four day holiday and I feel there was still so much we didn’t see, although we made a good go of it. While we just missed Oktoberfest we did manage to time it very well for the light festival. When I started writing this blog I knew it would be a long one, so much so it now has two parts and one all about the festival of lights as it deserves its own special mention.
After a great breakfast and waiting at the bus stop in the massive queue we finally got on the bus and was riding along the coast. We arrived in scorching Monte Carlo and our first thought was where to start?
Nick had already visited both Nice and Monaco a few months beforehand so had a rough idea of where certain spots were and places to go. We spent most of the morning just walking around and doing a loop, this was however slow going due to the heat of the day.
