I'm heading to Oslo in September with my wife to do a bit of sightseeing, however her cousin's confirmation is also that weekend, so we will have to attend that.

then there is the World Cup qualifier between Norway and Iceland being played the same day!! oh choices!!

then there is xmas in Northern Norway.

How about you?

Girls 15&7, me & nana are travelling from West Sussex England to Laredo Northern Spain by train,bus,boat then bus, but if you look on the Atlas it's a tiny distance. It will be our adventure for this year, to see if we can travel 'on foot' 400 miles,abroad, without the car.

As walked down in the streets of Laredo,
As I walked down in Laredo one day.
I spied a young cowboy all dressed in white linen,
Dressed in white linen and cold as the clay....

Budapest in September, to exploe yet more of that glorious city, do some swimming in breathtakingly beautiful pools, meet up with former site-member Flinda (some will remember her from last year) - oh, and eat a lot of great food.

Liverpool, in October as it's City of Culture year & we've never, shamefully, been there.

A pre-Christmas break in December in a Hansel-and-Gretel (former) gamekeeper's cottage with friends.

Getting quite excited about Budapest, now!

Oh, I liked Budapest A LOT. I haven't been there in years though. I could sure use a dip in one of thier spas, thats a given! Oh my aching body....

I do recall the name "Flinda", but not much more. Hope she returns to the site if she has extra time. Have you been there before, Linda, to visit her?

Have a great time!

we thought about Budapest also but I thought about Oslo having been there 4 times and only seen the airport!!

Travelling to Northern France in November for Rememberance Day as well, I've just located my great, great uncle's (man I'm named after) gravestone at Selby for those who died in WW1.

Your November trip will be a really moving experience, Blairhoyle.I'd really like to do that myself, sometime. I believe 'The Last Post' is played at is it the Menin Gate?

Do tell us about it, I'd really love to read that.

And DO try Budapest someday, it's seriously wonderful. I think this will be our 6th trip.
