Many years ago, I traveled to an unnamed African country for work. After scheduled meetings I was to have a weekend off at the location. I had excitedly researched all the sights beforehand thinking I would have plenty of time to explore. However, my plans were cut short.
We started our last day with an early breakfast at the Travelodge and then made our way to Westminster Abbey which was one of the top things to see on my son’s list.
On our third day in London, we had arranged to meet up with my dear friends Niki and Simon for a full day of exploring. Even though they live in London, they were game for spending a touristy day with us.
We woke to a sunny morning in London and started the day with a traditional English breakfast at the Travelodge. For the picky traveler, they did have yogurt and fruits in addition to beans, eggs and sausages.
My son and I visited London in December 2019. It was his first time in the city, so we toured some of the usual tourist spots but managed to fit in meet-ups with friends and some unexpected experiences as well. You’ll be astonished how much we managed in just for days.
The kids and I visited Tallinn during the school Autumn holiday for some good food and interesting museums.
A friend and I decided to visit Porvoo this year for some Christmas cheer. It was a great decision, as the town was busy with all things Christmassy.
Randomly browsing blogs, I came upon a 20 questions post. I thought it was a fun idea and decided to translate the questions into English and try it for myself. Feel free to join in!
I’m one of those people who get excited about Christmas the minute the weather cools and the evenings start to get darker. But I go off it just as quickly, as I have no interest in seeing anything Christmas after Boxing Day!
Just like that it was our last day in Berlin! Päivi had an afternoon flight to catch, so we only had the morning together. Thankfully we had to time to celebrate the end of our holiday with a hearty German breakfast.
