Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 64 Jetted Off

Jetted Off

Jetted off for a week in Spain.

Looking forward to:

Sun, Sea, Sand clear blue skies.

Wearing sandals and shorts,

despite the odd looks from locals, who were wrapped up in gloves and scarves.

Enjoying eating paella, drinking sangria, soaking up the sun.

Seeing the country by car.

Relaxed, refreshed, then


Return to work.

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

Shrinky said...

Oooooh, I am jealous! Mind, it is always a bit of an anti-climax coming home again, isn't it? Never mind hon, retirement ain't too long around the corner, eh? Smile.

Emmie said...

CrystalChick said...

Mmmmmm.... Sangria!

Julia Smith said...

Love the part about the locals wearing hats and scarves! That happens to Canucks in Florida all the time. My mom went swimming in the pool on a trip there, and a man in a jacket asked her if she was from Canada.

Hope your trip is renewing for a long, long time.

Just add music to it and you have a hit.

Have you considered ...running off to Nashville and becoming a country music song writer. hehehehe.

I love to travel and would love to go to Spain...especially want to see the alhambra palace in Granada. You've wet my appetite. Returning home is not fun though, takes ages to settle down into Real Life. :)
