November meant it was time for me and Dan to go on our annual overseas (Christmas) trip. I have always wanted to go to the Baltics after seeing a lot of photos from friends who had been, so cheap flight prices saw us heading to Riga. The cheap flight did mean we had to be up at sparrow’s fart to make the departure so we decided to stay at the Hampton by Hilton which is right next door to Stansted Airport. I booked an accessible room which was huge. It had a big double bed (it was quite high) and a pull out sofa – the mattress was
shit not the best. I shotgunned the bed as I was about to spend a week on a couch and Dan had to make do with the couch.

After an amazing week back on Lemnos at Surf Club Keros I decided to stay a few extra days in Athens. Pete and Andy had a 21 hour layover, with pretty much the whole of the Thursday to spend in Athens. We had all booked separate accommodation so agreed to meet in the morning for a trip up to the Acropolis.

Well I’m shit at blogging, last one was from July! My bad! Finally back at it with this blog about my trip to Budapest in November.
Remember my mate Dan from the Colorado Ski Trip and from last year’s trip to Warsaw? If you don’t remember (and can’t be bothered looking at the previous posts) Dan is a full time wheelchair user with a spinal injury (paraplegic). He’s also my travel buddy.
And this time we’ve gone to Budapest.

Back in August last year EasyJet were having a group booking sale to Iceland – £45 each return from London to Reykjavik. So we gathered a few of us together and soon had a group of six ready to go.
We chose to go at the end of January so we had a chance to see the Northern Lights and also because it coincided with my birthday on the 26th.
