Austria 08 Dec 16 - I need to visit Manu, things are not working out this December to see her, maybe in January this will be possible.. only time can tell.

USA & Cuba 08 Dec 16 - On the cards for October, USA that is, hoping I can do Cuba too in one trip, would be great if possible.

South Africa 03 Feb - Tickets booked 1 March - 1 April, looking forward to some sunshine, wearing shorts with flip flops and reasonably priced food.

Norway 18 May - Heading there in July to see the midnight sun, do some fishing and live a basic life for a week. Fjords will be an awesome 1st for me.
11 July - Got back yesterday around 2am ,trip was amazing, midnight sun, fishing and hiking..
Estonia or Latvia 12 August - Birthday present from Hanna, I have to choose a weekend cruise between the two countries.
29 August- I'm thinking a cruise to Tallinn, Estonia would be more awesome as the city is older than Riga, and has a more medieval feel to it. This obviously makes for better photos if the weather plays its part.
21 Sep - Looks like trip is on in 2 weeks time.
10 Oct - Finally went, this past weekend was awesome. Check out blog post
