We enjoy watching travel videos and reviews on YouTube.
In the month of April I made a week-long trip with Michel, discovering German aviation history in Friedrichshafen, Danish railways history in Odense and navigating the sea to discover some Estonian history in Tallinn.
Night trains, sleeper trains, sleepers. Call them what you want. Danny and I love night trains. So when Vanessa from Nessacityblog offered to lend me ‘Night Trains, The Rise and Fall of the Sleeper‘ by Andrew Martin, I didn’t refuse.
Welcome, 2019. A special year. Fifty years ago, in June 1969, patrons of The Stonewall Inn in New York grew tired of yet another raid by the police. Gay, lesbians, bisexuals and mostly: transgenders, transvestites and dragqueens fought back. Those were the Stonewall Riots.
Planning a big rail trip is a cumbersome process, it all starts with finding inspiration about where to go.
A visit to the Royal Palaces (Kungliga slotten) is a highlight of Stockholm, the capital of Sweden.
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.
Before we boarded the Serenade of the Seas for weeklong cruise to Helsinki in Finland, Saint Petersburg in Russia, Tallinn in Estonia and Riga in Latvia; Steve and I spent a day and a half in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. Where did we go?
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?
