I think I’ve previously mentioned that Ali and I aren’t exactly sure how long we have left in Cayman due to an unhealthy amount of job uncertainty… This has been the case for the last eight months and is still an on-going cause of frustration – there’s nothing we can do about it, but are finding it increasingly difficult in terms of planning trips back home for weddings next year, planning trips away here, thinking about my future job hunting and just logistical problems in general.
Anyway, under the assumption that we will be here for a little while longer, we have a rolling list of holiday destinations that we (well, mostly I!) constantly update and tweak around. Very high up on the list is a trip either to Mendoza, Argentina, or Napa Valley, USA, for some vino sampling. So this article in Traditional Home caught my eye when I was flicking through the website earlier in the week – the gardens and vineyard of the Staglin family. I love the various areas within the garden – the patio, loggia, arbor, vegetable and cutting flower gardens, terraced lawns and courtyard lawn. Maybe we’ll stop by in 2011!
