Big tree and merry go round at Tivoli Gardens at Christmas - Christmas Market Copenhagen, Denmark Copenhagen at Christmas


It’s not much of a secret, Emily and I LOVE Christmas! Since having Matilda it’s become even more fun, especially with her being 3 she is at that age where she is truly loving the magic of it all. For the run up to Christmas we fancied going somewhere we hadn’t been before. So we – myself, Emily and Matilda – along with 2 other friends, Emma & Nathan, headed for Copenhagen in Denmark for 3 days.

3 Days in Helsinki, Finland (Travel Christmas Markets)

Why Helsinki?

Lights, cold, artic, baltic, Food, drink, gifts, travel, Explore More Christmas Fever is off the scale in the Finnish Capital! Lots to do and explore. Best Christmas Markets we’ve been to with so much variety. Handmade gifts, clothing, decorations, outstanding food, a vintage Dutch Carousel for kids of all ages, Glögi by the bucket load and toasted almonds! LOADS of history if you’re into that. Cheap flights if you get them at the right time. We flew with Finnair from Heathrow which is a bit of an effort for us in Somerset but it’s Christmas; if you put the effort in, you get it back 10 fold!

3 Days in The Lake District

In October 2016 we had a rare long weekend for family time and headed up to The Lake District. We’ve been wanting to visit this area of the country for a few years and we will 100% be going back for longer as soon as we can. Matilda absolutely LOVED all the walking and scrambling up the rocks. You can see some more of the trip photos on the Facebook page here. The Lake District is outrageously beautiful. If you’ve never been, and like the look of it, just book a Cottage like we did through Skye Cottages http://www.sykescottages.co.uk/.

The cottage was perfect and, even though it was actually situated just outside of Cumbria, in the Yorkshire Dales (also beautiful) it was an easy distance each day to drive and as a travel tip, was a LOT cheaper than staying in the actual Lake District.
