I'm quite enthralled by Nordic dramas at the moment and it's really making me want to go to somewhere in Scandinavia, It's a longing I've always been a traveller well I do have a nomadic soul .And everyone except me has actually been to Iceland the country and not the frozen food store , prices seemed to have dropped to go there however I'm told that it is quite an expensive country when you get there .
Also I'd love to go to Rome as well as it seems obviously chockablock full of history , I'd just love to meander down and around the streets soaking up the history.
Hopefully soon I'll be off to Amsterdam for the weekend as last time we went it was just a flying visit on one of those overnight ferries from Newcastle. Update I have just had my flights confirmed with Easy Jet I'll be flying from Manchester and then stopping 2 nights in Amsterdam , luckily I had won 2 flights to Amsterdam so I've had had to pay for one flight . I've booked 2 nights hotel in a very nice Mecure hotel in Amsterdam with good transport links ( though Mr T does like to walk everywhere )
I have tried to book for Anne Frank house but it silly super busy and booked up for 2 months solid so we have a choice to make to go and queue from 2.30 onwards or to go and queue after 6pm . Of course there is lots more to see than Anne Franks house but I feel it is essential to see it especially with my son studying A level history . I just don't remember it being so complicated to try and visit the place when I went 25 years ago but perhaps I am retro blurry eyed about my youth.
