Kalimera from Kalh-fornia!! We spend a lot of time on this lovely island staying over the old port and love it and everyone on it.
Hi Gert, you mentioned Vancouver, believe me that is the very place where I wanted to emigrate to way back when we got married in 1971, obviously it never happened. I still dream of 'what if' In fact we did look into living on Vancouver Island a few years ago.My husband had relatives in Toronto and in those days they were going to speak for us.I suppose living where we are means Europe and wider are accessible.New York is also a place we've looked into as a holiday destination. We once landed at Queens on our way to Florida so I guess we can say we've been to NY.I can imagine Maui would be really nice to visit.I do feel for you when the temperature is as hot as that is expected to be. We rarely get extremes in the weather - but the British still have it as their number one talking point!
Audrey, I wish I could travel. I do not have the funds to so, so I just hope one day before I'm too old i'll win the lottery and then I can see the world. I have been to Vancouver, Canada (which isn't that different from where I live. I also have been to Maui (which was heaven, very expensive but wonderful). You are truly lucky that you can travel as much as you do.As for the scenery, thanks. There are some very pretty places where I live but like anywhere there are some not so pretty places too. We are headed into some really high temps (might hit triple digits) in the coming days and we haven't had any rain in more than 6 weeks. So there is some fire danger, etc.
Those films sound great Gert, there are a two or three I haven't come across.One we love to watch on Christmas Eve is It's A Wonderful Life (b&w)I really like Carousel as well - especially love the song when you walk through a storm etc. Still got visiting Mykonos on my 'to do' list for next year and looking forward to Malta again in September. Do you venture far Gert? The scenery where you live is beautiful.
Audrey, There are many films I have seen that made me want to move to the film's location.Under The Tuscan SunEnchanted AprilCasino Royale (Montenegro)The Holiday (the little village where Iris lived)Last Holiday (Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic)Amélie (Paris)Just a couple from the top of my head. Stand by Me isn't one of my favorites but you know what they say, 'Different Strokes'.
Did you enjoy the film so much Gert it made you restless to move there?Another film I really like is Stand By Me, have you ever seen that one?I hope you're enjoying your day, for me it's now almost bedtime.
Funny that you mentioned 'Shirley Valentine', after seeing it I wanted to pack up and move to Greece.
Hi Gert, the windmills will now be just a tourist attraction I would think, it's an island I would love to visit so if I get there I'll let you know about them.One of my favourite films is Shirley Valentine - it was filmed on Mykonos
6:00 in the morning and looks like an all night drinking party has gone on (still going).
Boy the wind is really blowing but how come the windmills aren't turning?
