72 hours in… Amsterdam – Day 1

Where do I start! We had a great world wind tour of Amsterdam over the Easter bank holiday in April 2017. With only 3 days to see all the sights we knew we would have to do some planning to get the most out of our time there and to be honest I think we packed in quite a lot!

There was just one thing I would have loved to see which was the tulip fields. Had we had an extra day we would have gone but time was short for us this time.

Where have I been?!

It has been 5 months since my last post and to be honest I was playing catch up to our travels then, let alone now!

Since my last post we have visited Budapest, Vienna, Bratislava and Tromso which were all simply amazing and also yet to be written I have all our travels from March last year to date! Help!

A day in… Malmo, Sweden

Travelling across the bridge to Malmo you definitely do feel like you are entering a completely new place despite only being a short ride away. Do sit on the right side so you can see across the water and at the ships, you can even at points see along the rest of the bridge. The first coach leaves Copenhagen at 10.15am and picks up again in Malmo at 4.15pm, we got into Malmo at just before 11.30am and so had just over 5 hours.

96 hours in… Copenhagen, Denmark Pt 1.

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.

My Five Favourite – Photos

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…

With 5 holidays to fit in here is Pt 2 of our ‘2016 Year in Review’. Read Pt 1 here. Plus if you enjoy this post you can read our 2015 travels here.

So once again lets get down to it with a quick summary of the second part of the years travels.

One of our favourite beach holidays happened in August last year – Nice, France, which is such a beautiful place and perfectly placed to visit the whole French Riviera! A few months later we travelled to the Berlin, such an amazing place with so much to do and see and our year ended with my surprise Christmas present – a trip to Tallinn, Estonia.

96 hours in… in Tallinn, Estonia Pt.2

Last leg of our New Years trip brings our last two days in Estonia. Read Pt 1 here. Read our day trip to Helsinki here.

Day 3 – Happy New Year

Our New Years Eve was spent walking around Tallinn zoo before heading over to the big shopping centre opposite for food, I can think of worst ways to spend your day. The zoo is only a short ride on the bus and the stop is just opposite the entrance.
