Leaving to go on holiday to a rented house is a bit of a hassle! No hard decisions about what to leave out of the suitcase, as you can always squeeze something more in the car. Lots of food, because the local prices are perceived (no doubt correctly) as being expensive plus all the left-over food in the fridge, bottles of the favourite wine because it probably won't be available down there, the extra clothes ('coz you never know what the weather might be), footwear to cover every eventuality, books that I hadn't quite got around to reading... and so it goes on.
|All that food.....!|
However, eventually we arrived, and it all seems worthwhile after all (even if, or perhaps because, internet access is very slow (if you manage to log on), no matter what network you use).
