Re: [Fun Poll] Holidays 2017 - Where You'll be Going

How come u guys can plan and book so early huh? So far my dh has thrown out a few places on impulse. Last month we watched Jackie Chan's "Kungfu Yoga", so he suggested revisiting Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The only place he didn't mention was Northern Europe! I like to plan my long trip early and impromp...

Re: Northern Europe

Hi Dnls_mum Thanks in advance for the detailed sharing and photos :rahrah: Oh you took bus from Helsinki airport to the city? We took the train. We only had our small day packs with us then, the luggage was checked in directly to Reykjavik. How did you manage to sort out the photos and add in the he...

Re: Northern Europe

Hi VooVoo If you plan to stay over Christmas, do decide where you want to stay and book well in advance. Christmas season in Lapland is pretty popular. I booked my B&B accommodation in Rovaniemi last year Jan. When I emailed the owner in early Mar this year, they are already fully booked! Most popul...

Re: Recommendation for hiking boots

However, if the mesh type boots get wet, the socks will be wet too and while the shoes may dry up quickly, the socks do not dry as fast and it will be uncomfortable.

It also depends if you need high ankles support. Usually high ankle boots are not light.

Re: Northern Europe

I also want to butt in here! It definitely has one of the most dramatic landscapes etched in my holiday memories but to be honest, not so great a location for northern lights chase. 10 nights in winter and all I saw was 10 fleeting seconds of it.... I have to agree with you about the NL. Many peopl...

Re: Northern Europe

Re: Northern Europe

IKR! I personally feel that 7 days Ring Road is not sufficient to fully absorb the beauty of the place. I hope to go back for a longer trip in other seasons.

Too many places to go/revisit, too little time and money! Haa...

Re: Recommendation for hiking boots

Yes, Merell and Salomon has some lightweight models. That said, lightweight models don't last as long. Heavier ones, usually due to the leather used, tend to last longer. Spoil liao have excuse to change new designs mah :smile: Can be quite tiring to walk long hours/distance with heavy boots. Some ...
