My last holiday was to Florence, Italy on tour with my brass band. We travelled by coach, which meant that we got to see a lot of France and Switzerland and a tiny bit of Germany on the way! We played three concerts while we were over there, and went to Pisa to climb the tower, and also went round the Uffizih (spelling?) gallery. The weather was amazing, and we went down a storm in all of our concerts! The food was amazing, and everything was fairly priced. I would love to go there again! The picture below is of the band playing its second concert in a lovely piazza in italy!

My last holiday was to Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, with my toddler son. It was summer but the weather was cool and only a bit sunny, with non stop rain in Tallinn. We went to Riga, capital city of Latvia, to explore its historical streets. Then we went to the countryside where we saw a castle, river and forest. Next we got a bus to Vilnius, capital of Lithuania, there we saw some amazing view points. We took a train to the old capital and there we saw a castle on an island in a lake. Then we took an overnight bus from Vilnius to Tallinn, capital of Estonia. I liked its historic streets and medieval atmosphere. However it was overrun with huge tour groups and it wouldn't stop raining. Next we went to an Estonian seaside resort and it was there my son's pushchair dropped to pieces. I had to buy a new buggy for him in a local shop. We went back to Riga and went to a Latvian seaside town. We went to an excellent water park and we had such fun there. I am glad you had such a lovely to Italy.

Hi, My last holiday was in Egypt .. It was amazing, I went snorkeling in the red sea and then I went north to the Mediterranean sea where the water is so clear and the sand is so soft.. so basically I spent 90% of my time on the beach. The weather was hot by the red sea but it was lovely at the north coast. Everyone should go to Egypt ..it's a land of beauty and history.
