On My Mind

Looking Ahead

We stayed put over the holidays (save a quick trip with my sister), which was nice. However, the next ten weeks are always a challenge—it’s gloomy on the school run and I spend far too much time indoors. To counteract the winter doldrums, I’m planning a few trips so that I have something to look forward to. California in March and I’m thinking about where to go on the Mediterranean next summer. TBC

  • Can’t wait for you to come to California, and I agree about planning a summer trip. I’m thinking about Croatia or Corsica. Somewhere a little less built up?

  • I couldn’t agree more about travel plans reducing doldrums. In fact, I read an article recently quoting a study (I know, I know but it cited a a real medical journal) that said we derive markedly more pleasure from planning our trips than we do when we’re actually on them!
    We are in the middle of a massive backyard reno that includes a pool and pool house so thought a few months ago that we didn’t need to book a spring trip…..but now……winter is back and looming large. I feel my booking finger twitching every day lol.

  • Preston,
    This message is more personal and probably not for publishing.
    Speaking of California, I would like to email you about my family’s hotel here in Los Angeles.
    Perhaps we could be a candidate for your husbands company, Tablet.
    We are rated #10 in Los Angeles today by trip advisor.
    I am not sure how to contact you by email. My email is above.
