We had three holidays this year. First, we spent Easter in London. This was an interesting experience of the city as tourists after having lived there for ten years. Then, taking advantage of the additional Bank Holiday for the Jubilee and Royal Wedding we spent a very varied week in Barcelona. Finally, as a surprise for my 40th birthday we spent a couple of weeks travelling around Denmark. I also had a nice long weekend walking in the Yorkshire Dales. Now we are looking forward to a week ski-ing in Italy. It’s not such a hard life!
