Back Soon...

2407953770_19aa78d8c9.jpg 

 
We've gotten so fed up with the rest of the northern hemisphere rhapsodizing about cherry blossoms and warm breezes while here in Scotland we're still huddling around our heaters, that we've decided to head off for a couple of weeks to find some sun.

Where are we going? Ah, for that you'll just have to wait until we get back. Don't you just love surprises? ;)

Oh, okay, I'll give you some clues. It wouldn't be any fun otherwise!

The country we are going to:

Has over 5,000 kilometers of coastline and more than 1,000 islands.
Is less than a four-hour flight from London.
Does not speak a Romance language.
Shares land borders with five other countries.
Tempts with specialties such as air-cured ham, bean stew with paprika and pork, and a spicy relish made from peppers and eggplant.
Has a cuisine I have never (knowingly) tasted before, which I suspect is probably the case for many of you too! 

Any guesses?

Croatia! Have fun!

April 15, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBenjamin

Either Turkey or Greece.

April 15, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChristina

hum... croatia? :-)

April 15, 2008 | Unregistered Commentersigrid

I know! I know! But your secret is safe with me...

By the way, Seattle is still very cold and wet. The weather report looks better for Edinburgh than for us back home.

Have fun!

Love,
Mom

April 16, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMom

April 16, 2008 | Unregistered Commentermatt

Croatia! Thank you Google Maps!

April 16, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBrendan

April 16, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterjoey

wherever you are going, Melissa have the time of your life!
and... always remember there's plenty of sun here in Israel too. You'd be welcome here. :)

April 16, 2008 | Unregistered Commentermalka lev adom

It's definitely not Greece, as I'm pretty sure Melissa has had Greek food before (with all those Greeks in Churchill House!?)

I'd go for Croatia, too.

April 16, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterPille

croatia? lucky you

April 16, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterlobstersquad

Definitely Croatia! :)

Btw, I'm Croatian, and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have, or suggest places to eat!

April 16, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterManinas

Forgot to add: have fun!

I can't wait to see the pictures! I find it very interesting to see familiar places through other people's eyes.

April 16, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterManinas

Hmmm... While I'm trying to guess where you are, I wish you a good time, wherever you are!

Croatia it has to be, it is known to be the "Land of a thousand islands". Enjoy yourself.

April 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly

When you find the sun, please let us know - or describe some lovely spicy dish that will make us feel like summer. Last week it may have been a balmy 25C here in the Pacific Nortwet, but like your mom said, the current weather outlook for Ol' Reeky was considerably better than ours. Today it snowed - and hailed - and rained...

I'd even cozy up to a peat fire at this point.

I was going to say somewhere in southeast asia, but from the looks of everyone else's guesses I think I did not read the descriptors closely enough. I cannot wait to see pics of what you ate when you return.

April 23, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterLiz

Well, my first thought was Greece, but then I wanted to be more clever, so then I started wondering about Macedonia.But that many islands seems a bit much for a landlocked country, even with all those beautiful lakes.

La Grecia! Woohoo! Of course I wish you were coming back to Calabria though....

April 24, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterbleeding espresso

Oops, or Croatia...or...hmm...Indonesia?

April 24, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterbleeding espresso

Gah! Land borders. OK I'll stop now ;)

April 24, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterbleeding espresso

Enjoy your travels and bring back some good food to share!

xoxo, jaden

Dubai, Maybe? They have a conciderable amount of islands and coastal region. Not sure about the 5 boarders though, will have to look up. Amazing food I absolutely sure! Hope you had a wonderful time.
