Writer’s minor holiday

by Gareth on August 2, 2011

That's Neil Finn behind the hatVery last minute, this post. I’m about to fly out of NZ for the longest holiday I’ve had in a long time — celebrating an important milestone for she who must be obeyed (I’m not allowed to mention what age she was last birthday, but it was more than me…). We’ll be flying to Europe, walking in the Dolomites, cycling round the Rhone Valley, sojourning near the Worthersee, visiting friends in Bologna and touring SW France and Barcelona, then catching up with friends and relatives in the UK, with a final stopover in San Francisco on the way home. Back at the end of September with a lot of trees to plant to make up for the air miles. Bryan’s in charge in the interim, and will endeavour to keep things ticking over. I’m hoping that that at least a few of the people who have promised guest posts will keep their word (you know who you are!), plus I’d welcome offers of guest contributions. I’ll be popping in from time to time to see how things are getting on, and may muster a post or two when the novelty of a proper holiday begins to wear off. ;-) And you can’t escape email these days, even in little hotels under Mt Ventoux. Good luck to you all…

A very well deserved break.

My long list of things to do one day include riding up Mt Ventoux – scene of many a battle in the Tour De France and, very sadly, where Tom Simpson killed himself trying to stay in the race.

We’ll look forward to seeing the holiday snaps, Gareth.
