2004. In April Chris and I spent a wet but enjoyable week in Tuscany. Nine months later, I set off for a memorable five weeks in northern India, leaving Chris at home to mind the dog…
2006. I was off again, to New Zealand, to meet the family of our future son-in-law, Steve.
2007. I was back in India, this time in the south.
Future projects? More Italy, more India, Spain, Morocco, Damascus, Petra…
2014 update Five years have past. The death of Chris, move to the new house, and increasing health issues have sadly put travel plans on hold. Having got through the shoulder replacement, the following winter must be taken up with replacing the first hip replacement. And then, and then…a more bionic me will head for India I hope.
2015 update Alas, another year with no travelling: 2015 was the cancer year … …
2016. At last, my first foreign travel since Chris died: two trips to Italy, one on my own and one with Jude and family.
2017. I fitted a wonderful holiday to Istanbul with Jude and family – between two shoulder operations.
2018. Alas, like 2015, a year dominated by ill health, this time my innards.
2019. Again, a lovely holiday with Jude and family, this time in Istanbul and nearby Sintra. On the way home I also visited Barcelona.
