Oli - Leaving on a jet plane

Sweet Olivia ready to go
Hi again

Here I am catching up with my blog again midweek.

Dinner at Julio`s on Sunday was Olivia’s last night in Spain before going back to England to continue her Erasmus University Exchange Programme in Cornwall.

She had been with us for a month but time has flown past and on Monday it was time for her to go back. We shall miss her, of course, but she will be back again for Easter in the middle of March which is not so far away really.

This is a picture of her ready for her trip which turned out to be full of incidents. She nearly missed the plane leaving Barajas which was, in any case, delayed. Thus she missed her train from Gatwick and had to catch a later one which left her at a station too far away to get to Falmouth. Luckily 2 of her flatmates were able to pick her up in their car. Falmouth is a 7 or 8 hour train journey from London with 2 or 3 stops and is out in the sticks, literally.

Susi will be going to see her in February and we, hopefully, will too in May. I have never visited Cornwall which is one of the most beautiful parts of England and I am looking forward to it a lot. It is very much Daphne du Maurier land, the author of Rebecca and Jamaica Inn, both set in Cornwall of course.

Bye for now
