OK, so although we were desperate for a sunshine holiday, Zed & I had put off going abroad with our 4 year old (Zak) and our 1 year old (Aniya). We thought we would rather be covered with honey and hung beneath a bee hive before enduring being in a 5ft x 2ft enclosure for hours upon end with our little ‘angels’. 
 
A couple of months ago, we decided to throw caution to the wind and booked to go to the Cape Verde Islands (a 6 hour flight), which we returned from last week. 
 
This year marks the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s first Pacific voyage that weighed anchor in 1768. 
 
A local lad, Captain Cook went on to circumnavigate the globe from west to east, so you could say he made the ultimate ‘voyage and return’! 
 
And along the same theme, we’re looking forward to the return of our regular guests, rather like watching out for the returning swallows each summer – we are always delighted to see them!
