By the time you read this, I'll be just-home from the Faroe Islands, but I'm writing it before I go. Hopefully my blog has been ticking along smoothly without me, and this should give me just enough time to start sorting my photos for your viewing pleasure.
I've only been away for about four days. Whoever would have thought that the Faroes were a weekend break location? When we first started planning this trip, I certainly wouldn't have guessed.
But it turned out that there were direct, reasonably priced flights from Stanstead - with a flight time of just over two hours, and no need to change time zones. That's definitely close enough to go for a weekend.
If you've been reading for any time at all, you've probably gathered that I love my weekend breaks. What better way to fit a few extra holidays into the year? Indeed, on my "List Of Things To Do At Least Once A Month In 2010," having a weekend away is right up there with trying a new recipe and doing some crafts.
The only problem I have with weekend breaks is to snap out of the mindset that I have to "finish" a place while I'm there. On a normal trip, I like to feel that I've seen everything there is to see. Can't do that in a weekend! Easter is the longest of long weekends, but certainly not long enough to "finish" the Faroes. Never mind. That just means we'll have to go back.
Hoping to have a post full of photos and anecdotes for you, in the next couple of days, and I'll be catching up on all my blog reading, too. Meanwhile, tell me, where's the most exciting place you've visited for a weekend break?
