There are certain items that you will buy every month of your life. That is a fact. And without fail, it will always, always be a chore to head out into town, to battle traffic, and aggressive car guards, or aggressive city parking officials, and random road works, just so you can get to Waltons [...]
I have just settled down next to the heated pool. This after a game of tennis, some brekkie and a 10 minute steam followed by a shower. Things could be worse. How other hotels can claim to be 5-stars, I don’t know.
