My daughter who lives in Paris, is getting very excited, as she is off to Rome for the weekend with a group of girlfriends.
I've already been to Rome, so I'm not really jealous this time! Last year, they went to Barcelona and the year before to Seville. Now those are two places that are definitely on my list to visit. I think Seville would probably be my first choice, as it is not such a big city. I've also heard that Seville is the most romantic city in Spain, so I know that I would absolutely love it there.

I think I love City Breaks almost as much as I love going on a week or two week break. One of my favourites (apart from Venice, which my older Followers - and I use that word loosely, you understand! - know that I absolutely adore) was Florence. I can still remember sitting outside in the balmy night air right next to the Duomo, enjoying a wonderful Italian meal.
Believe it or not, the Duomo took six centuries to complete and is now one of the most enduring symbols throughout the whole of Italy.
I was very lucky indeed that, for my 60th birthday, my family arranged for me to go to Prague. Now that was absolutely wonderful and if you ever get the chance to go there, I would thoroughly recommend it. I should say here that the April of my 60th birthday, was the hottest April I have ever known! So we were still sitting outside at 11 p.m. at night, people watching and generally soaking up the wonderful ambience of this beautiful city.
The old town square in Prague, with its origins in the 12th century, is one of the most beautiful historical sights in Europe.

I'll finish off today with a couple of quotes on spring.
