I took my last trip this summer when I flew with my toddler son to Latvia. For two weeks we traveled by bus and train around Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. We stayed in guest houses. For the first couple of days we looked around Riga the capital of Latvia. Then we went to spend a few days in the countryside where we saw a castle, a forest and a river. Then we went to Vilnius the capital of Lithuania. I loved the historic streets, interesting museums and lovely view points. We then had a day out to a lakeside castle. Wow! Next we got an overnight bus to Tallinn the capital of Estonia. I loved the medieval streets but sadly it was over run with noisy tour groups. Then we went to an Estonian coastal resort and it was there my son's pushchair broke. So I had to buy a new one for him and it was pricey. Lastly we went to the Latvian coast for a few days where we went to a fantastic water park. It was amazing beach with benches on and rubbish bins. I was really impressed. Most of all from that trip I remember the friendly and helpful local people and the fascinating museums. The weather was cool and dry in most places and really rainy in Estonia.

The last trip I took was back in Feb. I went to my daughter's for a week, and she treated me to a Scrapbook weekend retreat at Virginia Beach. But techniquely, my last trip is just fixing to begin,lol. I'm leaving either tomorrow or Wednesday to go to my daughter's for 2 weeks, and she and I are going to another scrapbooking retreat. After 6 months of being at home (was put on medical leave by my boss due to injury at work) except going to therapy for my wrist, dr appointments, etc. and the occassional trip to the store....I'm ready for a little vacation time and change of scenery. And my s/o is great about it, he'll take care of everything while I'm away and I'll come home to a clean house in two weeks. And my daughter doesn't like me doing any cleaning or cooking while I'm at her house. So I'm packed and ready to go! and then I have a trip coming up at Christmas also, flying to Texas to see my family.
