  1. Wow, what wonderful places to visit, it looks like you'll have a fantastic trip.

  2. Oh my goodness, 8 weeks, that's a long time to be living out of a suitcase.....what adventures you are going to have. Yes, I admit it Anne, I am jealous but very excited for you both........

    So many beautiful sights, you are going to be keen to get painting when you get back home. Make sure you take some watercolour pencils and a visual diary with you Anne, or at least something to sketch in and with.....

    Are you going to be able to pop into Blogland and let us know how it's all going? I know you'll be busy, but just a thought!

    Such beautiful Autumn weather here at the moment, by the time you get over there Spring should be getting into full swing.
