In Search of Summer


 Yesterday the temperatures didn't get out of the teens. In spite of two wood stoves going, the house was chilly. So I went to to Chile, to enjoy Maria Cecilia's lush summer gardens at Casa Dulce Hogar. 

I recommend blog travel to anyone looking for summer in the midst of snow and ice --  it's free; no security lines or baggage fees; and, unlike James James Morrison Morrison's mother, you can be back in time for tea.

South Africa and New Zealand are lovely at this time of year. . .

Ah yes, the wonders of virtual travel. I've just checked out the links, and I can see why you visit to escape the chill. Hope you're feeling a little warmer now.

Bitterly cold here too yesterday. So I installed the birdbath heater. And a miracle. A pair of blue birds showed up for a bath and drink. What a treat.

No one has commented on the A.A Milne reference yet. I love James James Morrison Morrison Weatherby George Dupree!

Me too, Anonymous! I know it by heart and used to annoy my boys with it.

Not much of a traveler anymore -- my gypsy days are over -- good idea just to sit in a comfortable chair and travel online. -- barbara

Hello Vicki

Happy New year to you! I love reading blogs on traveling. That's how I am learing about England and planning my trip there soon.

Take care.

Best
Tracy :)

I agree, there's nothing like blog travel for cheering you up and broadening your outlook.
