This is a blog about my travels. My "regular" life is much too boring to bother blogging about.

So I'm buggering off again, and not a minute too soon. I'm off to England for a wedding + other matters, and then Scandinavia for an adventure. This trip will hopefully include scrumpy, baltis, Borough Market, Indian music stores, the cantankerous woman in Leicester who used to sell me cheese, the other cantankerous woman in Leicester who used to sell me jacket potatoes, schnapps, saunas, KD, rye bread, lingonberries, and so forth.

My plans in England are pretty set. 3 nights at a B&B in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, culminating in my dear friend Amy's wedding Saturday in Hanbury (just down the road from Bromsgrove). I may go into Birmingham the day before if I feel up to it. Then I'm off to London for four days of wandering, eating, CD bin digging, and other miscellaneous shenanigans. I will definitely be daytripping Leicester too.

And then, Scandinavia! I know the following: I am flying to Stockholm on UK Election Day, May 6. From there I'm heading to Örebro to visit my beloved friend Cailan. And I know that the weekend after, we're piling onto a ferry and heading to Finland (Helsinki? Turku?) for the Swedish long weekend. In between, ??? I'm thinking I might head down to Copenhagen to hang out with my dear friend Tiffany, who will have just moved there for the summer.

This kind of country hopping isn't really my bag these days. I much prefer to explore a city or region or country for a longer period of time. But I don't exactly have long periods of time to spare these days. Oh well.
