Postcards from Porto…

Postcards from Porto…

Well hello there gorgeous people, long time no post…

I know it’s been quiet in these Noir streets, but we are recharged, rejuvenated and back to the blogosphere ready to revive it all.

I am just back from a whirlwind last minute trip to  Budapest in Hungary  (read about the previous trip here) where we stayed for a couple of days before leaving for Porto in Portugal for another few days, coming back to Dublin via Lisbon. It was mostly a working trip but got enough time, particularly in Porto to indulge in a bit of tourist behaviour. View Post

I had a great summer, spent time with loved ones and squeezed in a trip or two, the most recent one being a long weekend to Barcelona. View Post

10 Things to do in Helsinki…

10 Things to do in Helsinki…


Let’s be honest, when you think of Scandinavia, you think Stockholm in Sweden, Oslo in Norway or Copenhagen in Denmark. Those are the popular tourist destinations in that part of the world. Helsinki not so much. It just doesn’t seem to get the raving press that the other places get.
