Sunday reading

Not much of new products of note from the Singapore Sunday Straits Times yesterday.

One of the articles featured Cheltenham, a larger town (city) on the southern edge of the Cotswolds. We had only been to the Cotswolds once, driving through in a matter of ~2.5 days and staying in a lovely B&B along the way. In some ways, we liked it more in the Cotswolds than the lake district, but that is a matter of personal preference. Well this inpired me to write another post musing on our own experience of the lovely Cotswolds.

The main feature in the newspaper was Sri Lanka, and the resorts that one can opt to go to. Now this is not on our “to do” list, but it made for good reading and also knowing what one can do while in the island that has finally returned to peace after many decades of civil war.

Not to leave out a guest writer’s article on her visit to Bordeaux. This region was one of the stopovers on our 3-week roadtrip all around the “edges” of France in the summer of 2005. How time flies, but we could still recall it as if it happened only recently!

This Friday, we will be flying off to Japan to begin our annual “pilgrimage”. The Sunday after this is Valentine’s day. Unfortunately the Bvlgari cafe at Ginza is booked up but fortunately I found an alternative venue! Regardless of whether you are traveling abroad or staying, there will be numerous offers and options to choose from.

Here’s looking forward to another week!
