I (well, the family and I) have just had 4 days sight seeing in Iceland, and I'm posting this to say if you are even slightly thinking about going then its a must!
If you are not thinking about going, then start thinking :-)
Unbelievably beautiful and unspoiled.
Just amazing, go see for yourself.

Thank you for the recommendation Steve - over the years, we have often talked about visiting Iceland ... We might make it yet. :)

No one been anywhere since January? :D
Going to Sorrento in Italy on Sunday for a week. Never been and very much looking forward to seeing Pompey and/or Herculaneum.

Had a day out in Sorrento during my last cruise in April - it's a beautiful place (although the town was pretty mobbed with tourists). Driving down the Amalfi coast was stunning too. We got talking to a couple of Americans who said of all the places they'd visited, that was the first place they thought they'd love to up-sticks and move to.

Off to Vietnam, Cambodia and Singapore tomorrow.
We have reached the time of life to tick off a few "must do's", and Mrs Smith is ensuring holidays are not "wasted on golf" :D
Timing is good as I have a return of my 'problem shoulder'.
Hope to return on the 25th fully refreshed.

Any skiers out there? (Alpine).
A bit of a 'boast', but I'm highly chuffed with myself at 55 and a bit, so please forgive me.
Managed to ski down "The Swiss Wall" without a) breaking anything and b) without falling over even.

I'm very thankful it was not icy, and therefore relatively "easy".
Shan't be rushing back, but glad I got the badge.
