In the summer I met Sandra in the Italian seaside resort of Alba Adriatica and later we swapped facebook friendships.
Yesterday she posted a series of pictures of what she said "was my lake.”
And that made me wonder if my dad had visited the place when he was taking coach tours across Europe from the late 1930's through to the 1970's.
The coach tours were all inclusive lasted for seven to fifteen days and took in everything from lakes to cathedrals, and mountain to cities.
But that is to be unfair on what for many was their first opportunity to see continental Europe before cheap holiday packages became the norm.
Which of course just reinforces that idea that the world is really pretty small, and without thinking it we touch so many places
