I want to go to…

If we could, we would travel the world. Our fancy would take us to exotic and fascinating destinations at a whim. We would visit the most beautiful locations, best restaurants, cafés and, ahem… watering holes. We would seek out the most enthralling exhibitions, museums and attractions, the most beguiling scenery and the most soothing and coveted attractions. The world would be our oyster! Sometimes our frustrations at not being able to adhere to these whims are almost too much to bear and that’s when we stomp our feet, pout our lips, let our brows sink into petulance and exclaim, ‘oooh…

The Gothic, Baroque and Louis XIV style houses are truly breathtaking and when coupled with music and lights it creates an amazing spectacle.

Merry Christmas everyone!

    But then, I always want to go to Scotland… Whenever life gets busy or stressful I have a lovely fantasy of running away and heading to the highlands.

    Yep, I want to go to Scotland!

    Britain, France, Italy,Icelandic countries, Greek Islands, Australia, New Zealand, Machu Pichu, Rio, Croatia… so many places. So little cash. That is why my bid for the Amazing Race must be accepted…

    Yes, I think Lydia was very moderate in her desires. She was prepared to be satisfied with just Brighton. I’m afraid our series of pouts at the dinner table is going to be much, much longer than just the one…
