Inspired by my recent day trip to Birmingham, when last month’s payday rolled around and I found myself with a flexi-day at my disposal (one of the great benefits of working in the Public Sector), I decided that it was time to re-discover the delights of my old university city.

So, when I received an email challenging me to explore my local city and to write a blog post about it, my interest was piqued into delving into […]
I recently visited Tallinn as part of a double city break, spending my first two days in Helsinki and then catching the ferry over to Estonia’s capital.
