Post 800

I didn’t know what to write about today, so posted a couple of ‘shorts’ earlier, then discovered this would be my 800th entry. I couldn’t let that go by without some form of landmark.
Despite my ‘old age’, I haven’t really done very much or visited far and away places, not that I have regrets, just that earlier in my life I either had no inclination or money!

My first trip abroad was our honeymoon in Amsterdam in 1991. I was so excited about having a passport and going to another country, the wedding took second billing (though our wedding night was a hoot!). We went back in 1993 and that was my first trip on a plane, so you can see I was a bit of a late starter in the traveling stakes.
eurodisneyHubby and I have been to Eurodisney, and we were probably two of the biggest kids in our party of three coach loads from work. We had a Social Club and got massive subsidies, so a weekend away (cabin on overnight ferry, one night Eurodisney hotel, 1 and a half days entrance and return ferry trip) all for the price of ยฃ30 a head was exceptional value. I had my silhouette cut out and framed (which is packed away here somewhere) as a memento.

We have also been to Dublin, and had to pay a visit here, even though I don’t like the stuff.

I went on a business trip to Europe, this being Luxembourg, Geneva and Milan then back to London in 4 days. I didn’t see much of Luxembourg, but I did see this

I was also lucky to see one of these for real on a whale watch in Kaikoura:

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  4. Good heavens, you HAVE been to some beautiful and memorable places in the world. And I think reviewing back through them is a lovely way to celebrate your posting anniversary. But wow! 800??? You are one prolific writer. Congratulations for your resplendent efforts. Perhaps you should plan a trip to celebrate? ๐Ÿ˜›

    • We’d like to, which is why we got Maggie jabbed up for her doggy passport last year (if things had worked out differently, there was a possibility of spending a week or so abroad with friends) . There are places on the canals and rivers we want to explore once the weather improves. At least we won’t have to worry about packing!

  5. Congrats on 800 posts! I languish at just over 300.

    Also? I am so glad to hear I am not the only one who visited the Guinness factory who didn’t like the product (though I happily partake of other libations)!
