    Well both me and @MAURICE THE MARTIAN started our Euro Trip yesterday.
    Things did not start off too well. Mozz stayed at ours Friday and when he went to fill the Zed up Saturday morning his gearbox packed up again. He ended up having to travel back home and swap everything into his 3 series.
    Last night after our meal my Catheter came out so me and Kim spent from 11pm until 2am at the Hospital having a new catheter fitted.
    I have to say the Hospital was absolutely disgusting and if it had been in the UK would be closed tomorrow.
    Well today we head to Trier in Germany

    Shame about the start of your holiday @MAURICE THE MARTIAN & @billz but hopefully all will be plain sailing from now on. Or should that be plain driving:whistle:
