It's nice to go travelling (if you pack the bags)

Acouple of months ago I rang a friend to wish her a happy birthday. 'Hello... hello,' I bellowed down the phone, the background noise making it impossible for her to hear me and for me to hear her. 'Where are you?' I shrieked. 'At the airport,' she shouted back. 'We're on our way to Madrid - it's a birthday surprise.' The husband had organised it all without her knowledge and they were indeed en route to the Spanish capital for two nights of bliss in a lovely hotel and with dinner booked in some swanky restaurant for the Saturday night. How thoughtful. How delightful. How imaginative.
