The place we are staying is more of a backpackers, but that is happy for me as there are heaps of people here my age, most are Aussies and Kiwis funnily enough! There is a bar downstairs with a pretty good social scene, lots of theme nights (tonight is Sake for 100Y, tomorrow is Ladies Night for all 3 of us, haha). They have the most brilliant invention here - a low coffee table with a sort of doona tablecloth, and are HEATED underneath. so everyone sits on the floor with their legs under the doona... just wonderful. Dad is torturing all the poor backpackers who exist on 2 min noodles by cooking up bacon for breakfast and having an 8kg slab of Wagyu beef in the fridge (really)!!
And the most exciting thing is that it's SNOWING right now... I need to go out and dance in it and take photos (same rules apply when it rains at Lorna Glen)
