I've been busy today - a nephew's birthday, meal out with the partner and finalising the splash page for our Fixathon project. This is probably the first day in a while that I've not had a concrete idea for 200WAD. Normally, I would think of something or have something semi-significant that sticks in my mind, but not today, not really.

I thought I would do @jacklyons writing prompt: "Write about a country you've visited or a place you've been".

I've not been to many places in my time, although I grew up knowing I wanted to travel a lot. I think I've failed on that point and I'm definitely jealous of some nomad life styles I've seen, but perception is dangerous.

Anyway, I've been to the following countries:

France - I've been to France multiple times. Mostly recently on a weekend trip to Paris with Nay, but also a villa trip with my family where my Dad spent time in court for hitting a moped when driving on the wrong side of the road. Whoops.

Italy - We went here for our first abroad holiday as a couple. We spent a glorious week in Sorrento. Our hotel was on top of a hill with a view of Mount Vesuvius. I don't think I will ever forget spending €5.50 for a can of coke in Capri. FIVE. FIFTY. FOR A COKE.

Majorca - This was earlier this year. I started using 200WAD the day before I went. You can read those entries here: Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3.

America - When I was young, we went on a family holiday to Orlando, Florida for 2 weeks. There were so many memories from this time, including the amazing villa, the usual Florida trimmings and a special encounter with an armadillo.

Writing this, this seems like very few. Surely I've missed something...

With my current situation, I think long term travels are out of the question. Many locations will need more consideration, since Nay isn't as into trying many different foods as I am.

Our next trip is a break away to Krakow, Poland in September.

    @craigpetterson - you got'er done with a splash of reality. The best kind.
