My wife Stella and I have recently semi-retired and moved to Hobart in Tasmania after living for the previous 25 years in Sydney We both grew up in the UK and are looking forward to extended holidays in Europe now we have more time on our hands.
Last northern Winter we visited Munich, Cologne and Bruges before heading to the UK for Christmas and the New Year where we were joined by our four adult children. After New Year Stella and I headed to Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Budapest and Vienna before finishing up the holiday in Paris where we celebrated my sixtieth birthday.
In Europe our accommodation was mostly arranged though Airbnb and we stayed in some delightful places.
In 2015 we are looking to take advantage of the northern Summer & Autumn to visit Southern Europe with Italy and Spain at the top of our list.
