I am going to Surrey and Glasgow,same holiday every year, dreary ,wet and cold weather,most of the time, still I love the place for family and friends are there,and Glaswegians in Glasgow. Don`t see the need for a desert island with sea and sun ,I can see that nearly every day here,living a short drive from a beautiful beach.which I seldom bother with anyway.We usually go to New York after England,but this year I had a serious illness and the insurance scrubbed me "high risk" so sadly NY is out for this trip.

Aw Taurus , ah never hailed from Brig'ton myself but I'd have felt that same homesickness too. laugh.gif My lovely gran came from Brig'ton and she would say, " I went to Helensburgh today" or sometimes it would be Greenock or some other town. I'd ask her why she went there and she'd say, " Sure, I've got my penny ticket and I can get my messages anywhere". laugh.gif God bless her.

Melody, my stepmum was the same. She'd just 'get on a bus'. Didn't matter if it went to Balloch or Drumchapel as long as it went somewhere.

Many years ago when I was young ,it was a lovely sunny day and my mum worked until midday and when she came home she said come on we`ll take a wee run to Lanark. Lovely,,so away up to Waterloo St for the bus,and we`re having a lovely bus run,when she suddenly said in a panic,"I`ve loaked us oot,I forgoat my keys",and there and then she stood up and asked the driver to stop,I think it was an express too,so out we got and had to find a bus to take us back to Glasgow. It used to be lovely to wake up on a lovely day and decide to "go away for the day" usually to Rothesay or Saltcoats. That was nearly as good as holiday,the excitement of it all.

Rab, if you go to Italy, go to Venice and sail up and down the Grand Canal stopping off at all the Islands.
Your wife would love it as there are market's there with lovely items especially linen and lovely Murano glass ornaments.

I have lovely table covers and napkins, and some Murano ornaments I bought.

You can also dine in some lovely Italian restaurants, but be more adventurous than my husband.
I would order a Pasta meal with a glass of wine, my husband ordered fish & chips with a pint of beer. rolleyes.gif

Go to St. Mark's Square in the evening and dance to the Orchestra's that play there.

Heather, as someone who has visited Venice and Murano you may enjoy a book called"The Glassblower of Murano" by Marina Fiorato.
She is a superb author and storyteller.Her other books are as equally engaging. rolleyes.gif

Jup, when we were in Murano, we went into a place where we could watch the Glassblowers, it was really hot with the fires, and it was amazing how the men shaped and coloured the glass.
