We’ve left the sun, sea and sand in Mallorca behind us and are now back in grey but fortunately not too cold Auld Reekie. Even though both Lana and Matthew caught a cold it was a good holiday and I managed to clock off from work and relax – and since we didn’t pay for internet in our room we had very limited access to social media as well which was actually really nice!
In a recent blog post I told you about the Rock House InstaMeet that I helped organise a few weeks ago. Well the meet-up didn’t finish at the house, but we were treated to a photo walking tour by a local company called Iconic Tours. I am the first one to admit that there’s so much I don’t know about Edinburgh (and photography!), so I was really looking forward to it!
In the middle of Djurgården Island in Stockholm lies a beautiful organic haven called Rosendals Trädgård. This lovely place is a vegetable garden with a cafe where you can enjoy the produce as well as a shop that sells all sorts of yummy stuff.
The long awaited girly weekend getaway to Stockholm came and went way too quickly, just like fun things always tend to do. Can’t say I was physically rested after only sleeping a few hours per night, but the trip definitely gave me a mental boost – it’s just so relaxing to spend time with people from your own little town that speak the same dialect and that you’ve known for so long!
Tomorrow Lana and I are flying to Finland for the 5th time within a year, this time to attend my grandmother’s funeral unfortunately. It’s safe to say that flying with a baby/toddler has almost become a routine and I’m getting pretty good at it! Packing gets easier each time as does the whole logistics of the journey. What I’m dreading though is the flight itself and how I’ll be able to entertain a toddler who just wants to walk around…
