We are loving it here 🙂 !!! The city is beautiful. Yesterday we both arrived around 3 and ventured out to find some food and then groceries. Dinner was lovely! We sat in a cafe overlooking the river. Relaxing and delightful. Afterwards we wandered toward the old town looking for groceries. We found a Tesco […]
Got here safe and sound! All flights and transfers fine. Melissa arrived just 10 minutes after Alex, our host for the flat, had finished giving me the tour. All good! The city is beautiful and it’s lovely and warm. More soon….

Because Harry Potter should never, never have to make anyone’s list. It’s not only understood, it’s not necessarily […]
Today we woke up in crystal river and went downstairs to have continental breakfast. Of course, Emily was still in bed. So, I made an extra trip down there with her once everyone else was finished. There was an awesome pancake machine which made pancakes for you. One of the nice things is that our […]
