I do a lot of travelling. Mainly in my armchair, often to Blogland. But, for one week only, I did the real thing. To where it's all happening right now! Cyprus. We heard the news first hand from a man in a cafe.
I'm just waiting for the Beeb to call me and commission a report. I'm sure it will come soon.
At the airport. This honeycomb cannelloni done three ways was delicious: aubergine and tomato, spinach and ricotta, butternut squash. It sustained me for hours, through snow-based delays and thousands of miles.
I rather liked the decor. Reclaimed floorboards on the walls with massive chandeliers gave this restaurant a modern chalet feel.
Day one involved a ritual recce. So what did we discover? A coastal walk lined with rocks and trees.
Bushes of my favourite childhood flower, hibiscus. Sea water that was just a bit too cold to swim in.
A kitsch bar based on one of my favourite childhood programmes. Do you remember John, Buck, Manolito and the fiery but beautiful Victoria? I loved her look. All piled-high dark hair and eyes, tight bodices and full skirts.
TV, another rich source of travel dreams.
Now I need to come by and visit your worlds.
