Away 6th - 14th Feb - SherylC
« on: February 04, 2018, 11:52:51 am »
Well, it's almost here...my 60th Birthday. I've been dreading this great age for a couple of years now. Nothing I can do about it of course, so to commiserate, Chris & Rebecca are taking me away for a break to Tallinn, capital of Estonia and former Soviet state of Russia.

Info: Estonia sits on the Northern Border of Finland and was under Russian occupation for many years. Tallinn is famous not only for it's beauty and architecture (Russian influence) but for its technological advances over the years including Skype. Near the Tallinn airport is Technopolis, the city's version of Silicon Valley. Scores of Estonian businesses there introduce the latest in high-tech services and gadgets to visitors from Estonia and abroad It is known as the Silicon Valley of the Baltics.

Sounds exciting, Sheryl!!  I see what appears to be  a castle right in the middle of the city!  You will have a wonderful trip.  I am sooo envious!!!  :yes03:

In case I forget, happy 60th!   I wish that was me!! You are younger than my daughter!  On the other hand, I'm rather glad it's not me because that would mean, I'd have another 5 years of working before I could retire!   :stars:

Thanks MaryLou. Yes iíve always wanted to visit Tallinn.

I have another 6.5 years of working before I retire officially and receive my state pension even though Iíve been paying into the pot (taxes and national insurance) since the age of 15! Fortunately I was able to retire from school in 2014, aged 56. I do some work in the voluntary sector....unpaid but rewarding in other ways. 

In Wales you can get a free bus-pass at the age of 60 (65 in England). I have applied and expecting it to arrive shortly.

Thanks Joy.
