When I returned home in September 2018 from Italy the central heating boiler was broken.
When I returned home in November from Malta the freezer had broken down and defrosted.
I am going to get these things fixed and finish a few more jobs around the house and then start to travel again.
In April I am starting in the UK with a week at a holiday cottage in Mevagissey in Cornwall with my grandchildren. I have worked in Cornwall in the 1990s but it is my first holiday there since 1972.
This is me in Falmouth…
In May we are going to Spain to the city of Valencia, we have been before but didn’t allow enough time to see all that I wanted to. This time we are meeting my sister and then spending a few days afterwards at her home near Alicante.
The following month in June we are returning to Spain, this time to Madrid. We have been there before as well but only for a day so we obviously need more time to explore the city.
At some point we are going to Scotland and probably a weekend in Glasgow and then I have an idea in my head about visiting the Faroe Islands for a few days, flights are available from Edinburgh.
I have always wanted to visit Berlin but for various reasons have never made it. I will be going there in May but this is for a ‘stag weekend’ so I am not confident about this being a cultural experience.
In September we have made arrangements to travel to Southern Portugal, We will start in Faro and the Algarve and then find a way through the mountains to visit the south of the country and slip across to Extremadura in neighbouring Spain.
