Guess Where?





Sun, sea, sand, sky, white wine (too much of it), sunburn, cold nights, warm evenings, long drives, short flights, oysters, chocolate, old friends, young family, spinach, the black stuff, the red stuff, the right stuff, a lot of laughter, a few tears, hellos and goodbyes, socks and sandals (but not together, obviously), forty shades of green, bright lights, street fights (only kidding), dairy cows, funny accents, silly hats, designer shoes, no smoking …


Guess where I’ve been?

    I couldn’t possibly say – but did you kiss the Blarney Stone, bejasus?

  3. Elaine Says:

    This post reminded me of precis exercises at school; particularly the juxtaposition of the black stuff and the red stuff.

    I’d say “Enjoy”, but it’d be redundant since you clearly are!

  4. R. Sherman Says:

    It really doesn’t matter, I want to be there inasmuch as I’ve not had a holiday in a while.

    Glad you’re having fun.


  5. Iota Says:

    I’ve been wondering where you’ve been, actually.

    France. Or Italy.

  6. Iota Says:

    Except PM has given it away, and I know exactly what that means. You met up in PV without me, didn’t you? I was going to write “I’ll never forgive either of you”, but I’ve learnt from experience that you have to say that kind of thing in person or on the phone. Emailing is so open to people not picking up the tone of voice, and thinking you mean it.

  7. Mom de Plume Says:

    Definitely Ireland!!! Sounds fabulous! Hope you are having fun!

  8. gaelikaa Says:

    Ireland? Must be!

  9. Rob Says:

    Ah go on. Tell us more, why don’t you.

  11. Grannymar Says:

    Clairenbridge in the west of Ireland for the oyster Festival. Am I right?

  12. reluctantmemsahib Says:

    Potty: you are very clever. The closest until Grannymar stepped in! (And no, I didn’t kiss the Blarney Stone …).

    Iota: it does look very France or Italy, no? Temperatures certainly were: definately bikini weather, which definately not typical of Blarney country and more like Mauritius Rummuser.

    Grannymar wins. not quite Clairenbridge (though we did enjoy delicious oysters there the same day). Actually the Bay of Galway.

    Rob, you are very good at keeping secrets given you were there too! x

  13. Mud Says:

    Damn – I got here too late, I was going to guess Ireland. honest!

    Sounds fabulous – nourishment for the soul, and the tummy!

  14. Rummuser Says:

    Grannymar always wins. Sob, sob, sob.

  15. Jo Says:

    Ok, so 2 days late on this one.
    As I was reading the post, I kept thinking….Cornwall.
    But Ireland sounds lovely and looks stunning.

  16. janelle Says:

    ummmm tanga in the winter? (apart from dairy cows and no smoking…) no clue. but god it sounds lovely.! x j

  17. ParadiseLostinTranslation Says:

    Did you buy more shoes? And did it rain? I’m looking forward to the photos of the silly hats;o) Or was it silly shoes & designer hats???……..

  18. MTJAM Says:

    Late, but obviously Ireland 🙂 How beautiful.

  19. Cheryl Says:

    Is there such a thing as “too much wine”? Oh yes, lost my head… I’ve definitely had too much wine on occasion. Hope you had a great time.

    I cam across your story and couldn’t lift my eye off the screen till i am done.
    I have seen Ireland and most of it is really green and beautifull.
    The Pictures I see here shows it is Africa, and west side of it, probably north of south Africa. There is a good weather most of the year.
