Oh, so, yeh

To the one person that asked, no we aren't going to Malta!

For all my moaning, which was considerable, we have actually literally booked a summer holiday and all. We said "no" to the somewhat tempting heavily-discounted package holiday in Sorrento (amazing location, less-than-amazing accommodation) and "yes" to what I'll refer to, from now on, as "our chateau" (or an apartment therein) just outside of Lamilou-les-Bains in the Languedoc-Roussillon. It has a swimming pool, it has sprawling grounds, rivers, an old railway line, and even an orangerie. Yes, an orangerie. Bless them.

What is class is: car hire for 9 days was less that €300 (using Hertz through Ryanair.com) - how is that even possible?, we get to spend a day & night in Carcassone (that of the fairytale walled Cité) which is a destination in itself, and we fly out of Marseille-Provence airport, so we have a day or two to amuse ourselves along the Meditereanen coast, up in the hills, or in pretty cities and towns as we wish.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Ryanair for, and I've never said this before, flying into slightly obscure locations that make for perfect holidays (as opposed to long and boring coach trips into the city you actually wanted to see).

So, 6 weeks and counting...
