Madrid + Vilnius

I’ve been collecting interesting places to my must go places list from late 20th century, and it has gradually shrunk over the years. Not every year, but like six cities in a decade. This month I multiplied the pace by visiting in two places, first a week in Madrid, Spain, and then two days in Vilnius, Lithuania.

The Madrid trip was our family’s autumn holiday. The schools closed for a week this year – the length varies from year to year, next year the length is probably three days – and we got an excellent deal from Norwegian to fly to Madrid. This combined with a centrally located, spacious, and inexpensive AirBnB flat made the week very lucrative financially. And it was not bad in other fronts, either.

Numerous Finnish families had selected the same flights, Friday from Helsinki to Madrid and then the following Friday from Madrid to Stockholm and finally to Helsinki. Seldom I’ve seen so good prices for holiday seasons.

Autumn is travel season

August is ending and my hiatus with travelling seems to be over. I visited Tampere today, enjoyed my company’s Tampere office family day, and will fly to Oulu for a couple of days early next week.

We have had a tradition for several years to travel abroad once during our summer holidays. This year, we decided to do some local travelling and visited Tarto in southern Estonia.
