there have been ridiculous outfits, and severe expansion of comfort zones as I do new and scary things,
like singing on stage.............
there have been trips to distant railway stations to meet special people and wave flags.
there have been ancient monuments to visit, the highlight of which was definitely the latrines - well for the youngest boy at least!
trips to the North Sea; big, blue and impossibly cold.
and there has plenty of feasting.
In truth it has been mostly about the feasting.
with the occasional wild animal sighting........
