Chislehurst cave – Kent, UK

It was a city get away that I highly cherished. Stunning experience! It was just a train ride away in London zone 6 rail. This was 45min cave tour lead by a wonderful guide / actor / entertainer, Peter. He sang, bellowed and whispered stories of druids, people and ghost that stayed in this same cave. In the darkness, let the imagination ran wild…

Skagen (The Scaw) – Denmark

Beautiful town – beach, great seafood and flat landscape perfect for bicycle ride. Skagen, Northern tip of Denmark. This was a day trip from Goteborg. Hopped onto the Stena line – Goteborg to Fredrikshamn (3hr 15min ).   Stena line was a large ferry with entertainment, restaurant, bar, souvenir shop and tax free booze. Swedish Government had monopoly over alcohol (Systembolaget), so needless to say, booze was expensive. Stena line was THE solution to cheap booze for any Swede. **I found some children playing the slots machine… It was apparently quite acceptable. I was flabbergasted by the sight. I am legally not allowed to publish the child’s photo, but I swear I was stunned.

Asian ‘Venice’ in Shanghai 朱家角

Went to this water town with my ex-boss and husband as my farewell 🙂 I am a lucky girl, my boss and colleagues were all sweethearts. This is only a 90min drive from downtown Shanghai. Great for a get away from the urban jungle. Note, this is not an escape from the crowds. This is still China with its 1.4 billion people.
