  13. Gorgeous photos Diane, your visitors would have enjoyed exploring so much. Can you believe your temperatures are exactly the same as ours at the moment, no rain for a while either. I suppose autumn and spring can be similar at times, except for the dropping leaves and growing new ones thing 😉 Hope you are both keeping well, much to my annoyance the cough has returned 😱 Take care xx

  14. What an amazing place to live and tour. Thanks for the shout out on the blog. Good to hear from you. I had not been checking on you cause I remembered some months ago you posted all you would be doing and I knew you were staying busy. Have you made it or when will you make it to Africa?

  17. I can see now why you have been so busy, Diane! I don't know how Americans survive their 'Europe in a week' style vacations - they must need a month off afterwards to recuperate! Seriously though, I've really enjoyed this post, especially as I have visited (even stayed at) a few of those places. Take good care and don't overdo things - - - Richard
