So here we are finally in Vienna. This city has been on the dream list for over fifty years - wow can you believe that!!!!! When we think back to some of our very earliest of dreams or wishes this has to be close to one of the first I can remember. So the years of dreaming about seeing the majestic Lipizzaner stallions perform at the Spanish Riding School has finally come to fruition.
Off to Europe again and this time away from sand, sun and surf and into the mountains of Austria.
An early flight with a ridiculously early starts like 3am but it does means we’re there nice and early and hit the ground running. But Salzburg didn’t include any running, it just isn’t that kind of city.
We’re back in London, Dave’s very favourite part of the world, and fabulous timing as there’s lots on.
Chelsea flower show has always been on the list of ‘must dos’ but didn’t really envisage going on my own and DC was certainly not a starter.
This week we're residing in a lovely part of Berkshire, amongst glorious farming countryside, just thirty minutes drive from Oxford. Holding the reins with three delightful fury four legged friends who are the best company and an absolute pleasure to take walking.
What a fabulous place to hang out during a cold February, central London. Admittedly it brought the winter woolies back out, but the sun shone and it was brisk for our morning walks, just as we like it. Coffee always tastes better when you get home a little chilly and the house is cosy, it’s an absolute pleasure to be residing here for a month.
This time we headed for Barcelona in search of some sunshine and excitement!! David definitely lead the charge as he’s mooted going there many times and we’ve always ended out somewhere else - but not this time. So am really excited to see what we may find. We had a few suggestions from friends and colleagues but sadly learnt more about what the locals really love on our flight back!!!!
After Florence it was a bit quiet on the work front - spasmodic probably a better word. A couple of short stints in the country with some rather fun rare sheep breeds up in the Cotswolds. The two small mobs of Portlands and Castlemilk Moorit were more like our South Island wild that,
A quick two hour train trip from Rome made Florence so easy to visit and we timed it in the evening so as to make the most of our time. But sadly didn't get to see much of the wonderful Tuscan countryside.
We'd both been here before and I'd been spellbound
