    Sledging Fun

    February 19 in Finland

    I wake just in time for the sunrise and just as I think it’s not that great the sun lights the sky with a beautiful orange glow. Once everyone is up we have breakfast and after a shower we’re out the door. The first stop is in the town where we go in the designer shop that sells lots of local wears including hand knitted items and clothes as well as artisan items. We take a walk down to the lake, but can only walk so far as the track is dedicated solely to skiers and they go crazy if your caught 😂😂
    We make our way to pick up moumou ( grandma) and on root I spot a park full of snowmen. We pull over and Ida explains they we’re built a while ago when it was warmer but because it’s so cold they haven’t defrosted. Back in the car we arrive at grandmas before taking her to lunch at the local spa. Lunch is pork cooked in a mustard sauce and various other items including salads and potatoes. After lunch we drive to Ruka a small town but it’s one of the largest skiing resorts in Finland as much as I’m keen to try everything skiing is a no go for me as breaking my leg would destroy the long term plan and knowing how clumsy i am I’m not going to take the risk. The scenery here is beautiful even though it’s a lot of trees and snow its very different every way you look. We make our way back to the cabin as sledging is today’s activity and Ida’s goddaughters are meeting us there. I try and convince moumou that she should join us but she’s having none of it so me and the girls head out with the sleds. I can’t believe how hard work it is the going down is fine but as I get off and try and climb back up the snow is waist deep and I literally have to climb through it and by the time I get to the top I can barely breathe. We have a couple more goes and it does get slightly easier as the snow gets packed. Ada then suggests we go along the road with the sleds and she pulls me. I have a scream but i have to say when I have to do the pulling it near damn kills me. We finish up and head inside for the best hot chocolate ever joined with Finnish sweet rolls called laskiaispulla which are filled with cream and jam followed by coffee ☕️. We are joined by lots more family and loads of kids. It’s great how family are so important here and everyone talks rather than watching tv 📺 we all sit round the table and drink coffee and eat breads and cheese this is very traditional so who Evers house you go to the put the percolated coffee on and everyone comes together at the table , even the young children. The only telly that’s been watched since I’ve been here is the Winter Olympics. Everyone leaves after a few hours and the Sauna is on. it’s a well known fact that going from hot to cold is really good for the soul so sticking with tradition I jump out of the sauna and run outside where I roll in the snow then back into the sauna and I have to say it’s amazing. Shortly after as I go outside the sky is lit up in one area and I run back inside to tell the guys. They come out and confirmed it’s the northern lights and as they’ve seen it before I stay outside to try and get some photos. I truly am blessed to see them as it’s not a regular occurrence here but another box ticked and I go to bed a happy bunny.

    Finnish Traditions

    February 18 in Finland

    We wake at 8 and I’ve slept well even if it’s not been for long. Ida’s sister is on her way to pick us up to drive to the chalet where we will spend the next few days. Ada and Elma (Ada’s 18 month old daughter) arrive shortly followed by Tina (Ida’s mum) and we all enjoy a breakfast together followed by me having a little browse around the outside of the House. There is only a small community here and the nearest shops are a car ride away together with the only pub for miles. For breakfast I eat a rice pastry with a dressing of eggs and butter which tastes very similar to egg mayonnaise but nicer. Belly’s full and a three hour drive ahead we set off. It’s crazy how a smidging of snow brings the uk to a standstill and even though the roads are well gritted they still seem treachorous to me. The whole journey consists of snow and trees which I suppose is pretty understandable as Finland has 80% coverage with forest. The snow clings to the trees making for the most adorable views. We stop halfway for a coffee but it’s not quite a Costa. The coffee here is traditionally strong but it’s warm and that’s what is important. I pay a visit to the ladies and have soon come to realise that it’s hard work getting dressed and undressed. It’s so cold outside but whenever you go into a place it’s so warm you have to strip off. After refreshments and redressing were back in the car for the remainder of the journey. The cars here have plugs a bit like hybrid cars but the plug here keeps the engine warm so it’s easy to start.
    After more trees and snow we arrive in kuusamo and at Ida’s dads cabin. Jonathan Ada’s husband is here and as we sit around the dinner table drinking coffee Papa cooks reindeer stew. It’s so good traveling with local people as you get to see the traditional family ways, and even though her dad doesn’t speak English everyone else does so communication is good. The reindeer stew is delicious and as soon as we’ve finished we head up for the most amazing sunset. The colours are so vibrant and the contrast with the snow certainly makes this one of my favourites. After the sun has gone down there is something that they call a blue moment here, it’s not like just the sky turning blue it’s more than that but something that you just have to see.
    Early evening we make our way to moumou’s which is grandma in Finnish and awaiting us is more food. Grandma lives literally at the end of the road and when we arrive all the family are waiting. We eat and drink and I have a traditional coffee with cheese yes cheese. You put the cheese in drink the coffee and then sprinkle the cheese with sugar and eat delicious. After spending a few hours it’s time to get back on the road and head for the final destination via the K supermarket on route for essentials. I love walking round foreign supermarkets and can’t believe they have a pick and mix for pets.
    We arrive at the cabin a short time later and once the fires going finish the evening cooking sausages on forks in the flames followed by marshmallows. What a truly amazing day

    And were off again

    February 17 in Finland

    So today is a pretty crazy day for me as my usual agenda boarding a plane would be jetting off somewhere hot, but today couldn’t be more different, I’m off to Lapland with my Finnish partner in crime Ida.
    Even as I’m sat on the plane as we fly to helsinki it still seems a bit surreal. This is one of the first times I’ve flown where I’m not in that holiday mood of giddiness and I don’t know why although not feeling well might have something to do with it. We will fly to Helsinki first before flying out to Oulu which is about an hour away. Our arrival time is 1 in the morning and luckily Ida’s mum is picking us up so at least we won’t have our pants pulled down using an airport taxi. We arrive at Helsinki airport and the slight panic we might miss our connecting flight is calmed when the captain advises us that they have a delay on that flight also. The good news is it means I can have a cigarette in the airport smoking room which I have to say is the cleanest one I’ve ever seen. After a cigarette or two we head for the departure lounge and within no time at all we’re back on the bus to catch our flight to Oulu. Sitting on the plane waiting for take off a large crane like lorry approaches the plane and starts spraying the wing with anti free, this is to prevent anything from freezing up, well it is minus 16 outside. We arrive in Oulu without any freezing issues and I head through customs to have a cigarette while Ida waits for our case. Ida’s mums meeting us at the airport and as I go through there’s a lady that looks just like Ida and I say hello but it isn’t Ida’s my so rather than make a show of myself again I go and have my cigarette. Oh my gosh I wasn’t expecting how cold it was but the snow sparkles like diamonds even as it’s falling from the sky it’s so pretty. Back in the arrivals lounge it’s not long before Ida comes through with the case and is greeted by a lady that looks nothing like her and a lot younger than I was expecting. She drives us the 20 km back to the apartment and after a quick chat heads off and we get straight to bed as it’s 2amRead more

    Out at Sea

    November 9, 2017 in Saint Lucia

    So I wake this morning and the view as I step onto the balcony never ceases to amaze me. I feel so much better and shower and dress before heading down with Judy to have my morning brew with the office staff. We head out on the bus at 10 to catch the boat from the harbour and sit up front while Captain Kurt drives us to pigeon island. On route my hat blows off and although we turn around to find it we can’t see it anywhere. I have another one at the house so I tell him to carry on. We arrive at the island and take a small trek up to the fort at the top. You can see for miles and even Martanique in the distance. We walk back down and after a quick swim it’s time for lunch. The picnic supplied is sublime and after a good munch I’m back in the sea for a refreshing dip before our tour of the rest of the island. Were shown the houses of all the celebs before anchoring off to do some snorkelling . We head for home It’s been an amazing boat trip and just when I think that I couldn’t smile anymore we are surrounded by pods of dolphins 🐬 the babies frolicking in the sea jumping and diving they swim around the boat curving the bow as we dangle our legs over the side as they play beneath us. There are multiple pods and two different species with the youngsters being the most playful. The boat brings us back into harbour and we disembark back to the hotel. While Judy heads back to the office im left in charge of ordering drinks so 2 James Bond martini 🍸 it is. They are like rocket fuel then Judy orders a bottle of prosecco. Phil and Lorna join us for the sunset and we head back to the ridge. We have dinner and as I go outside the stars are amazing shortly after there is a power cut. With no light pollution whatsoever Judy and I cuddle up in fluffy blankets and fall asleep under the stars what a perfect end to a perfect day with a perfect friend.Read more

    Sugar beach

    November 7, 2017 in Saint Lucia

    My routine is waking at around 6am daily but I love the fact of getting up and just sitting having a couple of cups of tea with the most heavenly view. Each time I come out of the front door I just gasp with the sheer beauty of it but as I come out today The Piton is gone. It’s pouring and the rain causes a mist which totally shrouds the beautiful peak. The plan for today is the sulphur springs and mud bath so after finishing my brew with judy at the office I head down. It’s still quite early so I get my own personal guide who explains how the whole of SOUFRIERE is a volcano crater and that it means sulphur in French. There’s a strong smell of rotten eggs as I watch the sulphur pools bubbling away and then it’s time for the mud bath. Firstly I get in the hot water spring pool which opens up the pores then I cake myself in mud. You allow it to dry before rinsing of in the pool again. It’s supposed to make you so rejuvenated that it will make you look ten years younger. I plan to stay in here for a few hours with that promise but after 20 mins hoards of people arrive that have just docked on a cruise liner so I get out and make way for the tourists. As I walk back up the hill to the ridge I slide on the road and end up arse over tit hitting the ground with a bump. I recover myself and although I’m bruised and dirty finally make my way back to the house. After a quick shower I’m ready to go again and walk nick to the hotel to be picked up by the bus. This afternoon is a day on the beach and as we drive to the town Captain 👩‍✈️ Kirk is waiting on the boat to take us to sugar beach. We set of and the boat goes so fast I feel like my backside is still on the jetty.
    Arriving at the beach it’s rammed but pretty soon a large boat arrives and evacuates it. So armed with my towel I claim my sunbed and settle myself down for the afternoon. The sun beds along the beach are 90 dollars so I’m glad I blagged a cheap seat. After a couple of hours enjoying the view and sipping on coco water the boat is back to pick us up. I treat the crew to a drink and the captain invites me to the driving seat. We are soon back on dry land and heading back to the hotel a quick drink in the bar and we have to go and get ready as tonight we are doing the bbq. It’s nice to get dressed up and although the makeup runs off you I go the whole hog. The food is amazing starting with gazpacho and bloody Mary’s followed by chicken ribs and multiple salads. We enjoy a couple of cocktails after the obligatory sambucas at home and then Judy orders prosecco I am certainly loosened up ready for the limbo dancing 💃 later. Pudding is to die for and although there’s little room left I indulge. The show starts with acrobats and fire 🔥 eating and the it’s time for shaking my thing. I thoroughly enjoy having a good dance and although I’m not flexible like I used to be I have a good go. After the evenings finished we make our way back to the house where I’m in the land of nod within minutes.

    Tommy the Tarantula

    November 6, 2017 in Saint Lucia

    I wake at 5 as my body is still on English time and make my way to the kitchen to put the kettle on. I pick up the kettle and as I turn to fill it up from the water filter there’s a bloody big Tarantula giving me the eye 😱 with kettle still in hand I run out the back door back in the front of the house and shut the kitchen door. For the time being Tommy the tarantula is contained. I watch him through the Louvre doors as he breakdances around the kitchen floor. I take myself back to my 4 poster bed and hide beneath the mosquito net until I hear Judy up and about. Her first question is why is the kettle in the middle of the lounge I explain and she opens the kitchen door but Tommy has gone. We have our cup of tea and then walk the dogs in our pyjamas before coming back to find Tommy has returned. She wastes no time and chases him out with a broom. We have another brew and the most beautiful rainbow 🌈 appears over the Piton mother nature is such an amazing thing. The plan today is to have a walk into town so after a quick cuppa in the office with Judy and the team I head off with shopping list in hand ad tonight I’m cooking dinner. Town is a mixture of shops and banks so I ask where i can get a local breakfast and I’m directed to a little restaurant called petit Piton. They obviously misunderstood what I wanted as it was local English breakfast. I opted for an egg sandwich and a coke and as I’m eating away I hear a guy below the window. We get chatting and he offers to be my guide although I advise him that I won’t be giving him money but will buy him a pair of flip flops as he has nothing on his feet. He escorts me round town which is great as I don’t get mithered by anyone else. Shopping list purchased and Judy comes and picks me up and drops me at home. I spend the afternoon with Shirley the house keeper and she cleans while I cook. After dinners prepared I head down to the bar and meet Phil and Judy and we enjoy a few cocktails before heading back to the house for dinner. We sit on the balcony watching the sunset over the Piton before retiring to bed early.Read more

    Just Landed

    November 5, 2017 in Saint Lucia

    I touch down after a gruelling flight and realise I will be administering a nicotine patch for the journey home. I collect my bags from the only carousel in the airport and make the vey short walk to customs. I get pulled over and lie through my teeth to the oficer telling him I only have clothes and make up in my bags. Throwing him off the scent by opening my bag and showing off my newly purchased underwear. If he’d asked me to open my bag I would have been up shit street without a paddle. Waiting in arrivals is my good friend Judy who hastily scoops me up and directs me to her jeep.She is such a good friend as on the back of the seat is a cool box with chilled bottles of Piton beer in it. We crack open a beer and drive away from the airport pulling over shortly afterward so I can get into my shorts and have a paddle. 40 minutes later we arrive at Hotel Boucan where we order a Gin and tonic and sit down by the pool. It starts to rain quite heavily so drinks in hand we head back to the house. A couple more gins and I’m well on my way having started with eggs benedict and champagne for breakfast followed by numerous bloody Mary’s on the flight. Judy’s cooked up a curry but when I get to my room I’m blown away and there on the side is a gift bag. Upon opening it I find a bottle of sambuca and a bottle of grey goose the girl knows me so well. Phil debriefs on the dangerous things on the island including tarantulas but I take it all in my stride and turn in for an early night as I’m beat .Read more

    All things Chinese

    July 21, 2016 in China

    After the best nights sleep in over a week I feel like a new woman, and am ready to start a new day. The plan today is to buy a lonely planet guide book as you are not allowed to bring any books into China we didn't want to start off on the wrong foot so we adhered to the rules. The guy on reception has given us directions to the biggest book shop in the world and is pretty sure we will get it there. It's quite a long way from here but the tubes are pretty easy to follow so we set off on our quest. This place is crazy, they have motorised bicycles as well as mopeds that are all allowed to drive on the pavement and at times I think I'd be safer walking in the road. We disembark at children's palace and as soon as we get off we are instantly at the bookstore. It is huge, and I wonder how we are going to find anything in here even if we were Chinese. We have a few attempts at asking a couple of the staff if they speak English but no one here does. I try and use my initiative and ask someone in the English book section if they can help and we show him a copy of the lonely planet in Chinese and explain exactly what we want, but after he's spoken to a couple of people they tell us they don't have the book or anything similar in English and they only have the likes of Jane Austin. After nearly 2 hours we admit defeat and after a bite to eat we head home.
    When I explain to the guy in reception he says he can order it on line and it will arrive tomorrow so we go with that and place the order. It's really strange how they're so advanced with so many things and yet are so restricted at the same time. Tonight the television reception is down and since being here the Internet has been rubbishy, or so I think. When I mention it in reception he tells me they have no Facebook or google here and if I'm using this as my search engine I need to change it to Yahoo.
    We head out and buy a few bits at the supermarket and tonight cook a bit of dinner before grabbing an early night.

    Border Crossing

    July 20, 2016 in Hong Kong

    We wake really late this morning, well in fact it's actually closer to afternoon. We grab a shower and head out to catch the tube. We will go to The Peak today which is the highest point in Hong Kong. The queue today is a lot shorter than it was at the weekend but the Hong Kong/ Chinese people really do struggle with the standing in a line mind you saying that so did the French people in the queue it's so bad because there are old people and children in the queue that are getting pushed about so people can get the front seats. Two funny things then happen, the tram drives past the people at the front of the queue and when they eventually get on and sit down more people get on after them and although they don't have a seat they get the perfect view at the front, I do love a bit of Karma.
    As we travel to the top of the peak, the huge skyscrapers that rule the city all look like the leaning tower of Pisa as the angle of the tram causes an optical illusion, and the view is made so much more impressive due to the amount and
    height of the buildings. We reach the top and
    once again delivered into a shopping mall. We wind our way out of here and make our way to the information kiosk inside an old tram. The lady in here is really helpful and advises us of a walk we can take around a small part of the island. She tells us that it will take about an hour so armed with our water we head off, I'm more than glad to leave the crowds behind and head for the tranquility of a country walk. The walk takes us along Lugard road one of the oldest roads on the island, it's beautiful, lined with trees and vegetation as well as spectacular views of Hong Kong Island. As we continue round the path there is a big billboard with a notice of petition about one of the houses here. The house is a listed building but the owner wants to knock it down and build two villas twice its size. Obviously the locals are complaining, but the holding company is owned by an ex government official so I think I can guess who's going to win.
    The walk actually takes us 2 hours and when we arrive back we grab a coffee at Starbucks before specking our spot on the viewing tower to wait for the light show. The city is already lit up and the view from here is beautiful they do love a bit of bling here. We position our camera on time lapse but after 10 minutes I'm that cheesed off with being pushed and shoved we decide to leave and catch the tram, thinking we'll miss the rush , but we are wrong, the queue is massive but they have all barriers here so everyone has to stay in line. After an hour wait we're on our way down and even though we planned to hit temple market again tonight we are going to give it a miss and head straight for the hostel to lay our heads down.

    Big Bhudda

    July 18, 2016 in Hong Kong

    The plan for today is to go and see the big Buddha, but my first stop is to try and get the our room changed. I go down to the 3rd floor and bang on the door, but after 10 mins there is still no answer so I guess she isn't in. We can't wait in for her all day so we make our way to the tube and after a couple of changes were on the line to Tung Chung. There are loads of people on here but I'm hoping most of them will get off at Disneyland, however I'm sadly mistaken. We join the queue for the cable car, but after hardly moving for half an hour I suggest to Mark it might be worth doing this on Monday when there are less people. He agrees but making our way to leave the queue is a task in itself. Eventually we are back on the tube and after a little look at the map we've decided to go to llama island.
    I have to say the tube system here is brilliant and within a short time we arrive at the pier. The boat over is just £1.40 and takes about 30 minutes and we arrive to the island. We disembark the boat and follow the single path in front of us which leads through the first small village with restaurants and shops scattered either side. A little further along is an English pub that sells pickled eggs so i indulge in a pack of ready salted and an egg while Mark indulges in a pint. We just have the one and mine was a coke but the bill is a tenner so that's our lunch budget out the window. Our first stop is the temple by which I am a little underwhelmed as I expected it to be really impressive but to be honest I nearly walked past it. We do a you turn and head up the hill and walk for half an hour till we reach the beach. Mark takes a dip to cool down but I choose not to as the water is a mass of plastic bags and rubbishy and to the right is a huge power station, although these things don't stop most people going in. The water is really warm and after a quick refresh we continue our journey around the island. On the other side we start on an incline up the hill and to the right is a bbq area where they have pits that you can use to cook lunch. We chat to a lady called Claire who is from Australia but working over here for 6 weeks and make our way to the viewing point at the top. There is just the one path that takes us around the Island and as we go down I spot a huge spider. When I look closer there are lots of them but its the biggest spider I've seen in the wild, so after a quick photo we continued along the trail accompanied by our new found friend. Along the path there are square doggie poo places which is a great idea, and further along we reach Kamikaze Cave where Japanese soldiers dug out the caves and placed torpedo boats in them to bomb the allied forces as they entered the harbour . The path leads around the harbour and towards the next temple before bringing us to the Fisherfolk Village. As we walk through there are hundreds of tanks filled with everything from Crabs to Prawns and a Clam that looks more than a little suggestive, but we give this a miss and opt for a beer. On The journey back we opt to sit inside as the heat is unbelievable and even the sea breeze is warm. Bidding good night to Claire we exchange email addresses and arrange to meet for dinner in a couple of nights.
