I missed my family holiday this year as it was just after my hip op and I was busy with work. Thought I’d feel sad but I was actually relieved and glad to stay put. I couldn’t have joined in properly anyway – my family climbed Snowdon on the hottest day of the year (quite a walk at the best of times).
So, I’ve a flight booked to Barcelona – with a snowboard included (it’s one re-booked several times from last year). It amuses me to see it there – bit out of place on the beach but a bit like a surf board with bindings I suppose. I’d hoped to give surfing a try this September (an option where I’d stay – near the beach, outside of the city) but my hip’s not better. I’m getting a 2nd opinion in view to a replacement.
I’ve been deliberating about whether or not I should go to Barcelona. It’s been quite a year and to be honest, I could do with the time-out and a bit of a re-charge. Flying and travel’s going to be a bit complicated and weird but I might go for it and take care.
