In what is the first of a few posts about our Scandinavia trip, I want to start by giving you a glimpse into our itinerary and share a little photo diary with you (I am still sorting through over 2,500 photos – praise be to cloud storage). I didn’t mean to leave you guys hanging for so long on this, and I promise there are even more fun photos and details to come, but we’ve been getting so many questions about planning that I thought a little itinerary post would help kick this series off.
Scandinavia Itinerary – Day by Day (17 days, 5 countries)
Day 1: Arrive in Tallinn, Estonia

Day 3: Day trip to Helsinki, Finland; evening in Tallinn

More details will be coming as far as restaurants and specific sites that are musts, but you can see that if you plan your route carefully you can squeeze it all in. A combination of planes, trains, and boats will get you from point A to point B. This was our longest trip to date and brings our total number of countries visited to 25. Not that we’re counting at all, but it’s just amazing to think that in the last decade we’ve managed to see so much of the world. And there’s so much more yet to explore!
And now for what you REALLY want to see…photos! There are so many more where these come from so keep an eye out on future posts!
