Pilfering in Barcelona

Pilfering in Barcelona

 

Is the title of my new short story. Since I was indeed Pilfered in Barcelona.

They took my brand new phone and my money and I was not best pleased I can assure you.

Should you have the desire to read my holiday tales I now have a selection of 11 would you believe?! My short (ish) stories are based on my experiences in the following places and they are as amusing as they are true:

1.  Trinidad & Tobago

2. Miami, USA

3. Lake Como, Italy

4. Cancun, Mexico

5. New York, USA

6. Las Vegas, USA

7. Santorini, Greece

8. Herefordshire, UK

9. Barcelona, Spain

10. Negril, Jamaica

11. Caribbean Cruise

What is my favourite story? – Well I guess it’s gotta be Trinidad and Tobago as it was the most surreal holiday of them all and will be familiar to a lot of women planning their big day (or someone else’s!).

I’m off to Croatia next week and I really am hoping (indeed praying!), that there will be no drama to be had and therefore I will have a pleasant time unworthy of note.

Las Vegas seems all but a distant memory for me now, even though technically it’s been a mere 4 weeks since I returned from there, lol. Alas, I have realised that holidays and me, well we just go hand in hand. Escaping the hugely unpredictable weather in the UK to seek out sun, sea and luxuriation is compulsory for me and I need AT LEAST 2 longhaul holidays a year, not to mention additional European or UK ventures. Last year was a great year as I managed to go on 4 holidays: to Jamaica, Ibiza, The Dominican Republic and Lake Como in Italy not to mention Wales and Leamington Spa. The previous year I went to New York twice, to Amsterdam, Herefordshire and Hertfordshire. So, I’ve had a pretty good run methinks.

In 2 weeks time (Wooooo!), Ian and I are going to Cancun in Mexico. I haven’t been to Mexico before, so I’m really looking forward to experiencing all that it has to offer. We’ll be staying at the “Adults Only” resort Secrets Silversands Riviera, with an all inclusive package that’s entitled “Ultimate Luxury”. I am keen to find out what that entails as it sounds splendiferous! P.S I realise that splendiferous isn’t actually a word but you know what I mean, lol.

So..Bring on the Ultimate Luxury oh yes indeed!
