Bath: The Abbey

In amongst Bath’s Georgian splendour, sits her equally splendid medieval abbey. Although first built between 1090 and 1170, by the end of the 15th century the abbey was largely in ruins until Oliver King, Bishop of Bath and Wells from 1495 to 1503, began it’s restoration.

Reindeer Farm Visit

Over Christmas we spent a week in Inari, a small town in Lapland, northern Finland, about 250km north of the arctic circle. The Finnish capital of the Sami (the indigenous Reindeer herders of nothern Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia) Inari is a perfect place to try out a few winter activities and marvel at the amazing landscapes.

Given the location (Lapland has more Reindeer than people) it seems appropriate that the photos for my first post come from our visit to a local Reindeer Farm where we learnt all about these wonderful animals and the culture of the Sami people:
