This is just to let you know I am currently in Sorrento, drinking wine as the sun sets. Today I spent a full day at the museum in Naples (with a long lunch break) and tomorrow I am going to Pompeii.

Tonight's supper will be in one of the many little restaurants along the nearest street and will be accompanied by more wine.

I need to relax as much as possible as next week I am back teaching for my favourite term where kids do lots of exams and we get all the good school trips.

My holiday lasts a full week and I flew, with DH, from Edinburgh yesterday. The flight was great but the airport was very busy and we were too cheap to pay extra so had to sit apart.

The rest of the week is not fully planned but any suggestions welcome.

A fantasy thread?

I'll have whatever you're drinking 😂. Seriously though OP, I think some people may misunderstand your post.

I'm in my pants drinking cheap Merlot and eating a creme egg

It is where I should be right now.

Where should you be right now? In the park? In the pub? Out for dinner? At a party? Australia?

Sounds like utter bliss! I’ve been on several such holidays in the last couple of weeks myself.

Stet Sat 04-Apr-20 18:03:21

That's pretty much where I should be right now anyway.

Cismyfatarse Sat 04-Apr-20 18:04:12

Do you think I will enjoy Pompeii tomorrow?

EricaNernie Sat 04-Apr-20 18:04:21

In a remote cottage in Wales, I so wish.

I'm in Barbados
Channning Tatum has just gone to get me a drink and when he comes back he will apply the sun lotion grin

ScorpionQueen Sat 04-Apr-20 18:05:24

That sounds blissful.
I'm not booked to go away so am sat in the beer garden of my local with a group of friends. Kids are all playing and we've decided to BBQ tomorrow.

Disclaimer: I am sat in my living room with a gin and tonic having just done the ironing which is still nice.

I should be in Portugal 🇵🇹 my ds first holiday abroad . Instead I'm watching blippi on the sofa with ds

Cismyfatarse Sat 04-Apr-20 18:06:36

Changing is going to have to get his skates on. He is joining me for drinks after dinner (once DH is asleep, of course, I am not that cruel).

I normally go to St Ives this time of year, luckily we went in February for DH's birthday, so glad we didn't miss our annual week there.
I've been looking at the webcams and it's empty, so strange.

Cismyfatarse Sat 04-Apr-20 18:06:57

Where in Portugal?

titchy Sat 04-Apr-20 18:07:14

Honestly - go to Herculaneum instead of Pompeii. You might prefer it though - I always imagined it must better than the real thing wink

FlibbertyGiblets Sat 04-Apr-20 18:07:16

Go to Pompeii quite early as it gets busy. Wear comfy sturdy footwear and don't forget your suncream.

I think you should do a taste test of gelato/ice creams and report back through the week.

I'm in a town house with period features, log fire, free wifi and a gorgeous modern garden.
Loads of restaurants around and a beach at the end of the road.

I'm at home, but writing the positives - makes me feel better.

not listing everything that needs doing cos that'll burst my bubble
