European plans

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

With small children, it’s good to have travel plans for the neighbourhood, in my case Europe. Returning from our stay in New Zealand in 2003, I set a target to visit all the countries in Europe. Nearly there; only lacking Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. Although their European-ness is dubious – or at least contested – I’ll include them. Apart from those three, I’m done. 

31 October 2003 (my birthday), I also set these 31 European goals and enjoy ticking them off:

  1. Sail the Mediterranean
  2. Hike the Alps in Liechtenstein (Sep 2006)
  3. See the old walled city of Dubrovnik (Sep 2004)
  4. Hike the Tatra Mountains – Zakopane/Poprad
  5. Visit Moldova (Chisinau, Orhei Vechul) (Jun 2008)
  6. Stay in a private flat in Transdniester (Jun 2008)
  7. Visit Macedonia (Skopje) (Apr 2008)
  8. Visit Kosovo (Pristina) (Apr 2008)
  9. Visit Montenegro (Kotor, Budva, Cetinje) (Oct 2004)
  10. Visit Bosnia-Hercegovina (Mostar, Medugorje, Srpska) (Sep/Oct 2004, Aug 2008)

Canada – here we come

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

So we’re heading for Canada – specifically Maritimes. We’ll see a whole new part of Canada this time: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Am sort of dreading a potential Anne of Green Gables overload, but if the scenery is as beautiful, I shan’t complain.

Turns out Canada is big (duh!), so Newfoundland and that odd little corner of France in the Atlandtic – St Pierre & Miquelon – will have to wait for another time.

Cat is dreading the flight – 2 1/2 hours to Reykjavik, then another 6 or so to Halifax. Suspect Icelandair isn’t full of films, games and leg room, so shall have to think of something to keep her busy.
