By Amy Dickinson | Tribune Content Agency PUBLISHED: June 6, 2019 at 3:00 am | UPDATED: June 6, 2019 at 9:38 am DEAR AMY: Am I crazy to actually go through with this? A longtime Instagram follower of mine sent me a PM the other day complimenting me on my photography skills. We got to talking and he then admitted that he also likes me. Since then, we text, video chat and share our respective lives through the powers of social media. He lives in Brazil, I in the U.S. I am 15 years older than he — I am about to be 46. We hit it off really well, and he has not done what many guys interested in me have done: He has not asked for — or sent — nude photos. I have thought about opening my home for a few weeks with him paying for lodging. That could help me, as I am between jobs, and he could save on hotel costs. He will be applying for a travel visa. Do you think I should do this? Wondering WomanDEAR WONDERING: Let’s recap: THE OTHER DAY, you two met over social … [Read more...] about Ask Amy: Am I crazy to do this for my new Instagram friend?

Following the definite, incontrovertible and utterly undeniable news that yeti footprints have been sighted in the mountains of Nepal, the hunt is on again for those elusive, semi-mythical creatures which haunt the back woods and gloomy waters of the planet, as well as the more feverish parts of our imaginations. So where can you catch a glimpse of a yeti? And, more to the point, where can you lay eyes on a bigfoot, a bunyip or a fiendish chupacabra? Telegraph Travel goes a bit Mulder-and-Scully on a journey into the dark… Yeti Where? The creature also sometimes known as The Abominable Snowman tends to hang out – if it hangs out anywhere – amid the icy peaks of the Himalayas. Which means Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet and India. Sightings have also been claimed further afield in Mongolia, if you want to be really adventurous, and far closer to home in the Spanish ski resort of Formigal (though this one really resembled a man in a furry suit).

My middle child, aged 12, just brought home a letter about his school ski trip in 2020 – it’s to Maine, and will set us back to the tune of £1200. No chance. Ah, January. The beginning of 12 months of paying instalments towards your child’s annual school trip. Yes, I breathed a sigh of relief when my son said he didn’t want to go to Maine. I’d made it clear we’d make it work if he did, because that’s what parents do. We make sacrifices, happily, so our kids can seize all the opportunities that come their way.

But I was totally prepared to stump up the hefty deposit and commit to a year of forking out £75 each month to get my kid on that plane to Maine. But why?
