In the meantime, we did have some shorter trips planned to keep our travel itch at bay. These were: a week in Norway, to see the Northern Lights, which my (Tabitha's) mum was joining us for; a week in Liverpool, going to the Grand National Horse Race, as well as visiting the city; a fortnight in Avignon, France and Barcelona, Spain; a mon
th in the three Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania; a week in Italy with Nic's mum, so that she could see Assisi; and then a month in Eastern Europe, covering Moldova, and a bit of Ukraine and Poland.
The rest of the time we would spend with family, including a couple of cat sits for my parents, or up in London.
So there we are, our plans for most of 2016.
