My 14 year old niece left for a holiday in Biarritz today with her school friend, they are travelling in a private executive jet.
The friends mother races yachts at international level.
When I was that age, my parents didn’t even have a ‘phone, let alone a car, a yacht or a jet. How times change.
I did get to go to Noli in Italy on a school trip though, so I don’t feel too ‘hard done by’. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noli
