Inevitable Farewells, part 2

A travel blog entry by ellengoeseast


The past few days have been flashing by like a Formula One car with brake failure. Completely out of control. My last week at work, gone by in a blink. Then came the goodbyes, drinks with colleagues, speeches, cakes, a farewell card and a last lunch with the usual crowd. Shaking hands, promises to keep in touch, handing in the company laptop.

His lodge would rival a palace, but unfortunately was under renovation so we ...

End of First Baltic Cruise

A travel blog entry by gypsying

... rainy chilly day so we cancelled the scheduled boat ride. I’m glad we did because when we took the boat the next day it was a warm and sunny day. Perfect for seeing the city from the canals. There are hundreds of bridges in the city. A wonderful perspective. I also saw the Amber room at yet another palace but it was way too crowded. I think Rex made the right choice by skipping it and probably we shouldn’t have bothered ...
