Yesterday was the Bakers Dozen Days to go (13)… today it’s an even dozen… so here we go with Stays 8 – 14: Florence, Bordeaux, Cannes, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, Munich & Monaco. These places I visited on my 1st ever (& so far only) overseas. Faced with 3 months off work (un-asked for after a take-over) I decided to travel. I was insecure & inexperienced & honestly, did not enjoy it as much as I think I should have. However it allowed me to see more of the world & make some good friends (who sadly have disappeared over time). My favourite place of the above was Switzerland & the Alps – standing on top of the world was just amazing. Also, Austria (which sadly, like the rest of these stays, I won’t be re-visiting in 180 Stays) was just sublime – the amazing green hills, waterfalls & crisp, clean air was simply amazing to me!
