Friday Fun: Dining with Friends

When the summer holidays are over and people gather back for school and work once more, I miss all of my friends who live in other countries. Since I am still cautious about travelling, I can’t go and see them, but I am imagining we are sitting and having endless discussions over dinner and wine in places like these.

It doesn’t always have to be a dining table, it can be a cosy chat between friends (although that fireplace feels like a bit of a waste). From Outside Modern.

Friday Fun: Rural Retreats

Now that the weather has finally brightened up, who doesn’t dream of an outdoors lifestyle in a rural area not too deprived of creature comforts? I can imagine long, long dinners and chats with friends in these locations (perhaps a book club?).
