We’ve been lucky enough to visit Athens on two occasions, first in April 2014 and most recently in May 2017. Both visits were excellent, and we discovered some amazing places as well as finding some hidden gems throughout the city. Personally, if we were to visit again, I would visit in April or September, as by the time of our visit in mid-May the temperature was rising and many of the sights offer limited shade from the scorching sun.
I have been lucky enough to visit Edinburgh on a number of occasions over the past few years for various reasons and this blog post is going to cover the highlights from a number of them. The most recent of these visits was in May 2016 and so my memory may be slightly hazy on the details.
Back in October 2017, I took advantage of a mid-week day off and decided to visit the French city of Toulouse. Prior to this trip I had previously visited the region on a family holiday and had toured the Airbus facilities at Toulouse airport, however I had never had the opportunity to visit the city itself.
In the Summer of 2018, I spent a week in Germany and Austria, accompanied by my father, visiting various aviation and technology museums. Our tour started at London’s Luton airport with a flight to Berlin Schoenfeld, followed by a flight to Salzburg, train to Munich and flight back to London Stansted
In August 2017, I was lucky enough to spend three days on the continent for my birthday. Flying out to Munich, I spent 2 days in the German city and also had a day trip to visit my parents, who were holidaying just across the Austrian border in Salzburg.
During 2017, I was fortunate to be able to take a number of day trips to various European destinations, courtesy of cheap return fares with Ryanair. One of these trips was to the German city of Nuremberg.
In January 2017 I undertook my annual plane spotting ‘pilgrimage’ and spent 34 hours in the Swiss city of Zurich.
