Some postcard news…

from 1980s holidays by foreign waters

Dalyan sailing holiday: “Yesterday, we took a river trip inland to see some rock tombs and an ancient Greek city – nice to be off the boat for a change.”

Menorca: “This afternoon we took a boat trip around Mahon harbour – with a short stop for gin refreshment. Didn’t manage to lose any of the children!”

Iona: “Staying at the Abbey which is itself an experience! (Never peeled so many potatoes in my life before etc. etc.) Worship is particularly good. This afternoon, walked up to the N.E. corner of the Island in brilliant sun, then paddled across the sands at the north end – only to get soaked walking home again.”

Marmaris: [postcard shows] “Unspoilt scenery of this bay where we are staying. The main road of the place is still as dusty as ??200 years ago and we are expecting John Wayne to appear on his horse any minute.”

Switzerland: “Here we are again in the snow – a great change from the desert of Egypt. I decided to go to Cairo and down the Nile for 2 weeks with 2 German girl friends. The Valley of Kings was wonderful + tombs and temples.”
