Holiday

I was getting a bit cross about the fact that after June I will have used up nearly all of my annual leave, and there are so many places I want to go and it's all SO unfair. But then I started working out how much of the world I have been lucky enough to see, and I felt really rather guilty.

Here is a list:
Dublin
France - more times than I can remember, lots of different places
Corsica
Switzerland
Belgium
Spain - mainland, and all four of the Balearics (Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza, Formentera)
Italy - la Cinque Terre, Tuscany, Elba
Greece
Amsterdam a couple of times
Malta
America - a lot of the USA. 3 months driving across 32 states and clocking up over 7000 miles. But also separate holidays to San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Santa Fe, Boston.
Toronto, Canada
Mexico twice - Juarez and the Yucatan peninsular
Singapore
Malaysia - Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi
India - Kerala

And here is where I still want to go:
Tokyo
Cuba
Africa
Scandanavia
Brazil


I think my carbon footprint might already be that of a giant, so those exotic destinations will have to wait. Exploring our own fair island is the priority for now. And getting rid of the car too.
