One of my favourite ever ‘Strange’ Family holidays was a camping and birdwatching trip to the French Pyrenees when I was 12.
The weather was beautiful, the animal life was spectacular, and we spent much of our non-active time harvesting scraps of information about a major global sporting event that was going on at the time (Barcelona Olympics ’92).
Last week, 26 years later, I had the pleasure of taking my wife on a trip down my personal memory lane by staying in a deluxe caravan in the same village – Luz Saint Sauveur – where I stayed with my family. As with the ‘classic’ ’92 holiday, we had gorgeous weather, there was a major sporting event on which we were keeping a fairly close eye, and the area was absolutely teeming with wildlife (they even have bears now! – not that we saw any).
