THE GRAND TOUR ...6 WEEKS!

I will be gone on the Grand Tour...for 6 weeks.. From Bath....my favorite city..to Venice my most favorite city.. I am excited to have a little 2 hour session at the newly opened spa...I can't wait to sit in the real Bath waters. Click here to see..it is a little more modern than I would have designed it but the mineral water is real. The Queens of England went for the cure..and many got pregnant. hmm...I am hoping that my story gets pregnant. I am sure it will not be me.
My husband John Doan will be doing Celtic Pilgrimage concerts and a recording in Germany. We have 11 concerts set up..by me..It will be fun seeing old friends and new. I don't know if I will have time to blog but wanted to let you know in case you are checking my blog and wondered what happened to me.
We have wonderful friends keeping the home fires burning..and the flowers watered..as they will be house sitting 24/7 at our Hotel home...."Harp Cliff Cottage".
We will be home on June 30th.

Our trip includes...England, Wales, Holland (2 days) Germany (I have never been to Holland and Germany) A little side trip to the east side of France and Switzerland. Austria to see dear Harald. And finally Italy..Florence and beloved ....
Venice...the most romantic city in the world!!!
Ciao..and I will save you some Gelato...it is a food staple for me when I am in Italy!

Oh, if you have the time in Bath, they have a wonderful costume museum there. Lots of dresses from the Jane Austen era. I am sure you would like to see it.
I do wish you both the most wonderful trip, with lots of new audience to appreciate John´s music.
All the best!

I'll be in Bath at the end of June and if time permits, I will check out the spa. I'll be on an escorted tour so don't think it will be possible to do more than peek in.

Enjoy Venice and have a gelato for me. It is my favorite when in Italy. They even have Tiramisu gelato!

I'm sure you will return with a lot of inspiring posts from your journey.

Bon Voyage!

Hi Deirdra!

thanks for your response on my Lace Addict post. Wanted to wish you luck on your treasure hunting in Europe. Apparently Amsterdam is excellent for finding beautiful textiles/trims (my niece lives there and her mom - my sis - visits her fairly frequently and has picked up some lovely pieces for me).

Hugs,

Sue
