This year London’s celebrating! And we’ve invited the whole world to do it with us. Apart from everything else that’s happening in the capital, there’s also the World Gay Pride 2012! The main street parade is taking place on the 7th of July. I don’t know how different it’s going to be but I assume it’ll be much busier with a greater variety of marchers. That will be my fourth parade in London. I was away on holidays during some of the previous years. JJ’s holidays start the day after so we could party a bit that Saturday night. I’m expected it to be a fun weekend.
Right after that weekend, we leave on holiday. I’m so incredibly excited about it. I can’t wait for some warm sunny weather and to put my feet again in the sand of a beach with crystal clear waters. We couldn’t decide on the destination. JJ got his summer holidays approved very recently and we had to make up our minds on ta destination quickly. The last two summers we’ve been together we went to the Greek islands, Rhodes and Symi the first year and Naxos and Santorini the second. We had both times amazing time, but I thought of going to a different country this time. I don’t want to be the boyfriend that imposes his country of origin as a constant holiday’s destination. There are so many different destinations to choose from, not that JJ really minds. I believe he had a great time in Greece.
So, after rejecting destinations like the Gran Canarias or the south coast of Spain for various reasons, we’ve decided on Italy and specifically the island of Sardinia. It’s a destination we both haven’t visited that combines good Italian food (I expect) and from what we’ve seen nice beaches. We’ve booked a hotel on the south side of the island and a car to take us to places. The island is so big that driving to the northern area is more than 3.5 hours away which is a bit too much for a day trip. So, we’ll stay mostly on the quieter, from what we’ve read, south side. I’ve bought already two guides and I’m circling on the map areas to visit. Cagliari seems very nice to stroll around and the surrounding sandy beaches too good to miss!
I’m counting the days…
