I’m not sure yet.
Maybe Tunisia, or the Seychelles, or Barbados – with Elizabeth, my girlfriend.
Anndra Nach buidhe dhuibh. Lucky for you.
Màrtainn Uill, Anndra, tha mi a’ creidsinn ma tha an t-airgead agad, gu bheil e cho math a chosg. Well, Andrew, I think that if you have the money, you may as well spend it.
