We've had an unbelievably great time, amazing locations, weather, food and measures of alcohol. It's been great spending time with Dean & Alli who have been superb traveling companions. Highlights include Dean bringing a pack of cards that were magic ones, half of them being the 9 of hearts, Alli braving the toboggan run and Sue stealing glasses from the bar. All of us getting stern telling offs in the Hotel at Innsbruck, those tense moments driving the Stelvio Pass, watching the International Space Station pass over Lake Como, The Galati in Florence, The Leaning Tower Of Pisa and Oval Pizzas in Milan.
We've driven high up in mountains, around lakes and through tunnels. We've baked in the sun, cooled off in the pool and kept hydrated. Most importantly, we've had a really good laugh, swapped stories and wowed at some of the most beautiful natural & man made sights this world has to offer.
In the Euro Tunnel carriage there is a carful of chavs in front of us who get out and stand around with their hands down the front of their jogging bottoms.
Over 2400 miles and we have returned to England.
Now we have returned to flash floods, McDonalds & draconian out of date drink laws.
But I guess everyone else must like it this way.
Here's to the next great escape.....
