Tunisia, and Magic Wars." (markbourne, take note.)
Also, if you find yourself REALLY pining for something beautiful, or being frustrated by the crowds of London and grey skies, I recommend this panoramic shot of the waters between Bamfield and the Ross Islets off the coast of Vancouver Island (near where the folks got swept of a hiking trail and into the ocea last week - cool video on the news story). It's a super slow download as it's full sized images pasted together - don't look at it unless you've got a fat pipe and even then about twenty seconds. But it really does capture that feeling of being on a kayak out in the middle of nowhere - nothing but fresh air, blue sky, the lap of waves and the bark of seals.
