Heading to summer, leaving winter behind

It’s been two years since I was last in Europe, last saw the longest day in June rather than the shortest day, last saw friends and family in Sweden, Denmark and Scotland. Am I excited? At this stage, a little. I’ve decided what to pack (talk about a monochrome wardrobe with coloured accessories!) but we still have to take the cat to the cat boarding kennels, make sure all the laundry is done and give the house a wee clean.  You know what I mean I am sure.  But once on the first plane, the short hop to Auckland to catch the next flight to Hong Kong, I can just focus on the trip ahead.

I’m not sure how much blogging will happen during the time away, but I’ll try and post when I can, and will at least post pictures on Instagram @blof678 and Facebook.  We’ll be visiting Malmö, Kalmar, Stockholm and Gothenburg when in Sweden, stopping off in Copenhagen, then visiting Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh when in Scotland.
