own a vegetable garden
Radish Overload

But still totally worth it! As I don’t have my own garden I got an allotment. I now have potatoes, lettuce, radish, beetroot, celariac, artichoke, spring onions, carrots, tunip, cabbage, brussel sprouts, peas, mangetout, broad beans, peppers, courgettes, swiss chard, squash, sweetcorn and cauliflower growing! I could probably end world hunger…



drink a bottle of wine worth over €100
Going upmarket...

A bottle of Saint-Émilion: Château Beauséjour-Duffau-Lagarrosse, ranked Premier grand cru classé B wine fans! Originally bought for €95 a number of years ago but currently worth €104. Well I say currently but bottle empty now!
It was rather delicious and well worth the money – makes for depressing drinking when you have to return to the budget buys though…



see Pompeii
When they invent a time machine...

...I’m going to live in Pompeii back in the day! Nearly didn’t make this one due to train strike in Naples. Waited over 3 hours for trains to start running; God I hated that city! Was worth the wait though. Pompeii even more amazing then I was expecting. If it wasn’t for the large groups of tourists you bump into now and then you would swear you had stepped back in time. I love it when something you learned about in school becomes real! Nerd or what!
