gap years are not confined to university students, young people, or any particular age group so we decided we would have a gap year this year. We started in Tenerife, a month in the sun during January and February is not to be sneezed at and we loved it.
Next adventure was a flight to Las Vegas, staying on the Strip and taking a flight in a light aircraft over the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon, wicked! Our next trip was a week relaxing in Majorca after the children had left it! Lovely weather, people and hotel and food, very relaxing. We have just got home from a trip visiting our son and his American wife, they live in a fantastic setting where people flock to see the autumn leaf colours, we stayed at a magnificent In on the mountain surrounded by trees and wildlife (even a bear was sighted very close to the Inn). We are still recovering from jetlag and are thinking of planning another trip before Christmas.
