Location: ..looking at the Malvern Hills

How lovely. If I remember correctly it's still new to you and that's probably lovely too.

 

We spent our honeymoon based in Malvern and walking in the Malvern Hills (a few weeks off 30 years ago). It sounds tame when travel is so easy now. I can remember us literally skipping across hills singing tunes from 'The Dream of Gerontius' and his 'Enigma Variations' at the tops of our voices, because there was no-one else around.

Yes, it is a lovely part of the world to be. Unfortunately, it won't seem so lovely tomorrow when I'm back at work and commuting 80 miles a day. At least I've got something nice to come home to.

How romantic! I do think the hills bring out the madness in us :D

Ahh...last night of the Proms would have never been the same if he had never written that immortal piece!
