    When it’s like this you can’t help but think why travel abroad.

    What other country can offer the same breadth of beauty and facilities.

    Currently I’m the garden drinking a Bloody Mary about to have a bbq. The birds are singing, quiet and lovely.

    God bless this Emerald Isle.

    Scoots don’t bother replying with gloom and doom post save it for the Brexit forum.

    Keep telling yourself that. Spain, Prague, will become desirable destinations again without drunken Blighty stag / hen parties.

    This morning I drove from Middlesbrough to Manchester. The views on the M62 are quite stunning. Different, but every bit as wonderful as the alps.

    It's not that the sun is shining it's that the temperate climate makes it just part of an ever changing landscape. That is what makes the UK one of the best places to experience life.

    I was up at sunrise today for a run along the beach before the tide took it. No one else but a few dog walkers and a couple of horse riders. A few joggers were pounding the pavement along the prom which is a popular parkrun 5k route, don't really understand that, they scared of sand or something.

    Sure, I could have done this in Spain, and have done when on holiday, but a lot easier to drive the two miles to the beach than faff around with airports. Then back home to watch the overnight episode of Game of Thrones.

    Life's what you make it. Many will be sleeping through the morning, as they do with life in general. Their loss.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Where do you reckon has the best climate in the world?

    Canary Islands have got to be up there. Lanzarote/Fuerteventura are around 20°C in winter, rarely go above 30°C in the middle of summer and there is always a cooling breeze, plus exceptionally low rainfall. And, unlike the Med, virtually no mosquitoes.

    I like the countryside of Majorca, it reminds me a lot of the South of France, particularly Valbonne where I lived for a couple of years.

    Thanks to AGW soon the mediterranean will be way too hot and the UK will be perfect. Any hotter the UK gets will be counteracted by Arctic meltdown slowing down the NAD. So the UK will carry on being perfect.
