One of the things that I’m missing whilst travelling the world is seasons.  We travelled have travelled from Summer in the UK straight back into Spring in South America.   I miss Autumn!  The way the trees change colour, the cosy nights in, candles and cups of tea.  Imagine, therefore, how I will feel about
