OK, so our trip to the UK didn't exactly get off to the best start.

As we pay for roadside assistance insurance for all of Europe (ANWB), we thought we'd just make a quick phone call and some lovely person would come along and fix it for us. We called and called and called again. We were promised that someone was on their way and would be there soon.

We waited so long that we eventually decided to fix it ourselves.

We now know how to change one of Fred's tyres. And we've cancelled our roadside assistance insurance!

So we've done the "trial run" to Chamonix for a few weeks.

It was so great that we didn't want to go back home! Particularly not when this also meant having to finish up work (booo!) and pack up an apartment. Summer time was ending and the storm clouds were moving in.

It's not all doom and gloom and boxes, however. We've broken up this time with the wedding of good friends (yay!), a trip to Switzerland for Jen (yay!), a trip to Luxembourg for Mark (yay!) and so on. There's also the regular fun stuff, like climbing at the gym, catching up with mates over a biertje or three and enjoying our last days by the canals.

We'll be on the road again soon!
