Never was a JW, but been here a long time.
Off on a trip in a week or so, UK to Andorra to stay with a friend for 10 days or so (beautiful place) then a week or so wending through France back home.
Did the same trip the last couple of years -it was wonderful. Met some lovely people, including an ex-polce woman over coffees and calvados after dinner.
But ... I don't feel so enthusiastic about this trip. I'll visit the Cathar sites and other places.
Maybe- just maybe - I've come to the conclusion that these trips are not as much fun if you don't have a companion to share it with.
