Cruiseday Tuesday – the Greek islands

There are 6,000 to pick from… so there’s no disgrace if someone mentions their Greek island which, of course, you’ve never heard of. We all know the well-known ones, Corfu, where 25 years ago next week Mrs M embarked on her life of joy (or marriage), Crete, Rhodes… I’ll throw in Kythera (ky-where-a) which is […]

Holiday Snaps – Post-exam hols

I’m glad that’s all over – the Post-Leaving Cert holidays. By the time it got to my two the destinations had changed.., it was Lisbon and Amsterdam. For me and my buddies it was camping in the French Riviera. And, no, of course it wasn’t Cannes. But St Raphael. And yes, I’ve had to add […]
