Catch Up

It has been a while folks, I realise but I have been travelling Scandinavia with kids in tow. I found lots of free Ryan Air flights so we ended up visiting a few different countries including Germany, Sweden, Norway and Belgium. So, there was lots of getting on and off planes, five in total but it was great fun. It was really a trip of a lifetime and the girls loved it and were really good carrying their own luggage etc. They love travelling and I really hope they let us go backpacking with them when they are older like we let them come "inter planeing" with us!

We saw some amazing sights including the Vasa ship in Stockholm, we are now big Swedish children´s literature fans as we have discovered some great Astrid Lingren characters. I have always been a Pippi Longstocking fan but we met so many new characters on our travels so I am looking for translations of Rona the Robber´s daughter, Karlson etc as I can´t see myself learning Swedish in the near future.

Whilst travelling we noticed that all the other tourists were Spanish. In fact the only other tourists were Spanish. We heard Spanish everywhere we went. I suppose living in a warm climate with access to beaches means that you can enjoy more sightseing city break holidays the rest of the year.
