Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.

  1. Things left at home … knickers for James this trip. He only packed 5! Could be worse, we came away one short trip to discover he’d not packed any clothes … cite Europe was the first stop!

  2. We also do the first start – second start Malarkey. The neighbours set their watches by us being back on Fox Hill Drive within ten minutes of leaving – this time it was Dave’s laptop charger.

    Safe travels, Hetty – it’s raining cats and dogs at Lake Maggiore too. Let’s hope for sunshine next week in Garda!xx

  3. Have a wonderful time Susan and John – don’t stop having adventures! And don’t stop telling us all about them. Here’s to having the sun on your face and the wind at your back; travel safely x
