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!
