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!
