London Calling

Our last morning in Iceland consisted of driving in sleet and waiting for our shuttle bus in sleet – the perfect time to leave and head to London for three nights and also number one of two separate visits that we would make. After successfully navigating Heathrow and the London Underground we arrived at our apartment in Whitechapel, a short 5 minute walk from the tube. The next day we awoke to a very sunny London (definitely not what we were expecting).  Continue reading “London Calling”


Iceland – there are no words

Iceland. The land of ice and fire. Home to shaggy ponies, stunning scenery and Bjork. As the title suggests there are no words to describe our amazing stay in Iceland so most of this post will be photographs. We spent our days hiking to waterfalls, craters and hot springs, and driving through the most amazing scenary. We were ridiculously lucky with the weather and had blue sunny skies every day until the very last morning where it was raining with sleet.  Continue reading “Iceland – there are no words”

We took the bus over to Djurgården which contains many of Stockholm’s famous museums including the Abba Museum and the Vasa Museum. Continue reading “Stockholm (Part 2)”

Kiitos Finland

The sun finally showed up as we left Vuotso and headed back down to Rovaniemi for our last night in Finland. As we drove into Rovaniemi we found a carpark and went to check out the city. To say we were underwhelmed by Rovaniemi is an understatement. As we walked around we discovered icy footpaths, dirty snow, and a serious lack of heavy metal. Continue reading “Kiitos Finland”

Winter Wonderland

Our last few hours in Helsinki were used up walking around the city and buying Salmiakki (licorice) before our flight to Rovaniemi in the Finnish Lapland. We decided to get a taxi to the train station to avoid dragging our cases along cobblestone roads for ten minutes in the cold. This proved to be the wrong decision as we handed over €17 20 minutes later. Continue reading “Winter Wonderland”
