Lauralea and myself are this very year, celebrating hanging in there with each other for 25 years, which, like most things when you look back at it, seems a whole big deal. So we are thinking of a bit of a celebratory tour and we are having trouble making up our minds. While we don't want this to be the reason we lay down our 25 year relationship, we do want to have a bit of fun. It's just that with such an abundance of riches, we are having trouble deciding.
I was wondering how you might decide.
Think one week tucked away on a Scottish Island in late October in a small place right next to the sea. Long walks through the Scottish heather covered moors, warm fires with cups of good tea and during meals of halibut chowder, enjoying a cold glass of Tennent's Ale. Quiet with places to pray where people have been doing that for hundreds of years.
Taking a small apartment in London in the cool of October, seeing the beautiful art exhibits, and taking in noon hour concerts at St. Martin in the Fields. Walking through Hyde and Green parks through the big orange leaves, stopping for a pint or hot drink at the oldest pub we can find. Spending a day in Charing Cross with hours just for the used book stores that smell of old leather and paper bindings. Maybe take in an evening show in the West End, or a concert or two. Then hop the Eurostar and in two hours be in Paris for two days. The Eiffel tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral, french bread, strong coffee, outdoor cafes, Champs Elysees (To look and not to touch...)
See, it's a tough call.
If you had such options, what would you choose?
And if you know, then answer why you would choose that way.
Go ahead, dream a little.
