it'll be our 1st time ever , to those parts - IF we actually get there ;

- much the same , as I can say about retiring to Espana , although the complaints ( and the few remaining real positives ) about there appear somewhat different.... ;
now , contrary to afore-stated concerns , certainly France , e.g. Languedoc , somewhere like Beziers-Agde would be so much better hols - or even further inland , towards Carcassone , Limoux : without a shadow of a doubt , on sooo many counts !
Except that at our , somewhat advanced age/s , now our holidays have to have purposes other that actually holidaying - e.g. researching-finding some xyz sunnier place which also needs , first and foremost : to come up to imaginary scratch and tick enough boxes , to encourage us to eventually re-locate/retire to thereabouts....
( so then , better : let's not talk Harare , this time around !!! )
