After deciding I needed Time Out, off I jetted on a plane with plenty of books to read (Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella – review coming soon, promise; The Self-Preservation Society by Kate Harrison; Look Back in Hunger: The Autobiography by Jo Brand; Pagan Visions for a Sustainable Future by Ly De Angeles, et al; I am What I am by John Barrowman; The Rapture by Liz Jensen; The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson and The Element Encyclopedia of Magical Creatures: The Ultimate A-Z of Fantastic Beings from Myth and Magic by John & Caitlin Matthews).
The locals were wearing their coats, hats, scarfs and glovers and looked at me like I was a crazy person or some sort of tourist sun-bathing topless on the beach.
Plenty of good food, drink and good times were had. I went there as a singledom and came back with a boyfriend. The story of Boyfriend-W (as he shall be named for now) will be revealed in Part 2.
