What are your holiday plans?

I'm currently torn between the south of France (Eurostar to Avignon!), the Baltic states (before Putin goes there), or just returning to the US (yearning to get back to Gettysburg). Got some guidebooks for the first two so will sit down over the next few days with some wine and beer to see which is most appealing. And then go for the other because it's cheaper.

Book a holiday cottage in The Cotswolds in November.

Summer will be spent wafting Mimi with ferns.

Yes, that's the other option for the south of France. Until such time as 'London' Oxford airport starts offering regular commerical routes, getting airborne is a real pain here in the 'Shire. I also rather fancy the idea of idly watching the French countryside zoom by whilst I quaff railway wine and solve murders.

"I may be German, but I search it practice because I was five years ago at the last time in Germany."

Thanks, Bing.

Dammit. Now I want to be walking along the Promenade des anglais on my way to sit outside the bar in the market and watch the acrobats. And they have trams, too.

I'm considering a weekend in Ibiza. Not to go clubbing or anything but just because it ticks quite a few boxes:

  • Nice weather
  • Close to the sea for swimming
  • Relatively cheap
  • Lots of flights
  • A nice place to wander around in with the old town and whatnot

Aside from that the only thing I've got planned is a weekend in Centre Parcs with my family later on in the year. This is mostly for my niece's benefit but I'm quite looking forward to it myself for being able to cycle around the forest and all that jazz. It probably won't be as interesting a time as the last time I was there* but still.

*At age fifteen with my family and best mate in tow. The two of us decided that the swimming pool was the ideal venue for our first experimentation with acid. We only nearly drowned twice so it was all good.

We're off to Berlin in a month for four nights, then at the end of August going to the Lake District where it will clearly piss it down all week long.

Today I learned that if you hit alt-u in the reply box it sticks in the BBCode tags for underline.

True fact: the only premiership-level football game I've attended was watching Bavarian Munich at the Olympic Stadium.

I thought in Hochdeutsche umlauts had been gone, along with the esszet. Or was that a weird dream?

Now I'm thinking I should be considering Germany too (albeit perhaps not to see how well the Lacetti really handles corners at high speed).

Hmm...perhaps a long weekend in Berlin or Hamburg later in the year might be in order?
