And there it is, XT. In a breath you have organised what we are doing for my son's 13th birthday that lands on the 19th of August.  I have been stressing for weeks as to what to do. So far, it boiled down to a visit to Martinique, or a day at the Treetop Adventure Park - neither of which got any bells ringing.

What you found, on the other hand, has my boy jumping around all over the place!

I'm so glad to hear that!  :) 
That Adventure Park looks like fun. I used a zip-line just once in my life and I loved it.

Work. Read/write... then house sitting in August for my ex-wife (3 indoor cats & a slew of strays she feeds outside [she captures them and has the critters spayed and given shots so they don't get sick]) and then on to Michigan to visit mom in September.

Ummnn, maybe your ex is my sister. Ah, no. She has 2 inside the house and 3 outside.  ;D

I'm worried for the trees. My diet isn't going according to plan - if I even had a plan that is.

I take what Marie Antoinette says, seriously.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

So you see how the water idea is much safer all round.

Argentina does have tsunami defences, doesn't it?

I'm back and not that happy about it. Hell, I would have stayed for Danny if it'd hit!!

Must check flight prices, asap.

We all know that you are glad to be back, so you can stop pretending.

You missed the work, obviously.

Hmmm.. a post and a zero postcount. 

Do you know I landed yesterday at 8.45am, had my phone on a minute later, and was called about a job at 8.49am.

Way to let me ease myself back into things.

I'm thinking about going back next Easter but if would have to be without my missus. She says she'd be ok with that but I swear I caught her sharpening a meat cleaver last night.

I'd tread carefully if I were you. My husband going to the Caribbean and I staying home and working?!! Maybe the meat cleaver is just scare tactics. If I was her I'd choose a stealth weapon. Something that causes chronic, unrelenting pain.  ;D ;D

Like when she cooked dinner that time?

If she ever reads this, I'm already dead.

Off to Rome at the end of September, just for 5 days but looking forward to all that Italian food and wine.

I'm due a trip to Rome soon too. Unfortunately, I can only go from Friday to Sunday as it stands.

Will be my first visit there, I have been to Northern Italy several times so this will be a new experience. Booked a few things before going, usual tourist places.

I've been all over Italy, pretty much, but I've never made it to Rome for some reason.  I actually have to go there with a friend of mine who needs to sort out his properties. Not sure exactly when, but it might be very soon.

Roma, città eterna!! I'm so envious, guys. I've been there twice and I hope I can come back again. You need at least a week to visit the "important places" and that is if you skip altogether the Vatican Museums.  :D

Still want to visit Venice and Florence.
