Holidaying at home

When everybody seems to be on holiday apart from you, you feel rather miserable, am I right?
It happens! Oh, don't be a baby!
All you need to do is head to Windsor, with its' tiny cobbled streets, it's such a charming place to be on a sunny summer evening.


There is the riverside off course, with the very popular Brown's restaurant or the upmarket Sir Christopher Wren's Hotel terrace; but sometimes it's worth heading up towards the old centre to discover a quaint corner packed with pubs and restaurants, right across from the Castle entrance. Tables are set outside on the cobbled streets, squeezed between old, traditional buildings, and walls that are dotted with baskets full of colourful flowers.
When you look up at the sky, you see the sun shining on the clouds and you really feel like you are in Majorca or Tenerife.

There is ample choice of restaurants but we chose Latino taverna this time, for a spot of Greek mezze, to complete the Med feeling we started building up!

Lovely soft keftedes (meatballs), juicy dolmades (rice and minced pork wrapped in vine leaves), grilled halloumi and a fresh salad.
As for drinks, I went with a glass of crisp and slightly sweet rose Tsantali wine, while my fiance had an Ouzo cocktail with sprite and strawberry liqueur; Pink Ouzo? Interesting!
 


What is your holiday-pretend place?
