Another Weekend Break



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?

how lucky that you manage to get away so often, and to such wonderful places! can't wait to see the report/photos - the faroes is somewhere i wouldn't even be able to point to on a map, let alone would've thought of taking a holiday there!

The most exciting weekend trips I've taken were quite a few years ago. We took a long weekend (3 day) drive to Banff from Vancouver and back again. Another long weekend took us driving to San Francisco. Amazingly, we had time to do things other than drive non-stop. As you have pointed out, it's best not to think it all has to be seen/done in that time frame. We'd been to both places before so that may have made some difference. And, we were younger.

Our weekend breaks are in Portland, Oregon, a six hour drive, but ohhhhh, so worth it! Great food, great sights, great music, great walks. Come to think of it, it's time we planned another get away. Glad you enjoyed yours.

Hope you had a good time, looking forwards to hearing about it. Best weekend break I have had? A hen weekend to Amsterdam, which was more the company than the place (although the more xrated parts of the weekend could only have happened in Amsterdam)

how lucky to have a chance to go there just for the weekend! I hope you learned about the knitting history while you were there, even a little bit!
