Austria is beautiful,can be very warm,we go to Cyprus to see hubby’s dad and wife when they decamp there fo winter,but having lived there more like going home than holiday,only so much to see and expensive since they got the euro. Italy is also one of my faves, went as a child and also as an adult by train,had to start at Paris,then on to Venice,Rome,Milan,Florence, Naples,Sorrento brilliant holiay. This was pre Eurostar,still trying to persuade hubby that it is just the best way to travel. Wouldn’t mind going back to Canada and seeing what I want to see,not just what my mother’s husband (Canadian, thinks you should see,which usually means he wants or needs to go there,will drop you off and pick you up,usually at he same place he dropped you off in 25 mins,if you’re lucky 45.) was visiting my mother and felt like I’d been kidnapped!
