Renowned writer and film maker, Susan Sontag (1933-2004), once said 'I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list.'
That line would have been a fitting response, methinks, to an acquaintance who commented on a photograph I shared via Instagram recently, asking: 'Is there anywhere in the world that you are not going to visit?'. Good question, I say.
In fact, Peter and I have only just landed back at The Blue House having travelled extensively for some 45 days. Our adventure took us across the United Kingdom - from Kensington to Wiltshire, Cornwall and Devon to Somerset, Warwickshire to Yorkshire, County Durham to Cumbria and Northumberland, and then Cardiff in Wales and on to Edinburgh and Stirling in Scotland. From there we flew to Stockholm in Sweden, followed by Budapest in Hungary. And then travelled by rail to Vienna in Austria, and finally Prague in the Czech Republic. We ended the journey basking in the blazing sunshine for a few short days in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates.
Our suitcases have virtually exploded onto the living room floor, and on the kitchen bench is a jumble of postcards and ephemera, reminiscent of the trip. In the fullness of time, once I've caught my breath, I'll be sharing traveller's tales and a feast of tasty recipes with you. Until then, ta-ta, bye da, bye for noo, adjö, viszontlátásra, auf wiedersehen and rozloučení.
