WordPress is not only a very easy to use and practical platform to blog, it’s also a community. Trip By Trip has now over 200 followers via WordPress. That’s not enormous, but we’re happy with this following.
July was a special month. It was the first time in forever I went on a trip in a July, as it is the prerogative of straight couples with children to take a leave in July – but mostly because I finally went on a cruise.
After Helsinki in Finland and Saint Petersburg in Russia, Tallinn in Estonia was the third stop of our Baltic cruise which started in Stockholm in Sweden.
Travelling on and with a cruise, you sometimes get only a few hours in a city. Surely, we had time to spare in Helsinki, the capital of Finland, but we felt we had seen what was doable.
It was long overdue. Going on a sea cruise had or has been on my travel wish list for a long time. I have quite a few friends who are avid cruisers and I really wanted to taste it. So how did I experience my first time cruising?
