    Well at last were on our way, seems like we have been waiting forever for the hols to come around. Met up with Maurice and Andrea at 19:30 in our first stop in Coalville. Tomorrow run to Dover ferry booked for 14:00 then on to Brussels for our second stopover. Will get some pics tomorrow, will try and post them tomorrow evening (WiFi Permitting)

    Weather is looking terrible for our trip down through Germany but never mind it can only get better (Fingers Crossed)

    I have been keeping in touch with them too. Told me there was still snow in the Alps and weather has been a bit mixed but is having a great time. Think the number mentioned a figure around 14- happy days :D

    Hi all you zedders, had a brill time in Lake Garda, weather is getting better, we are in Cap Martin at the moment, next to Monaco, going to have a drive through Monaco tomorrow. And yes it was snowing at the top of the Stelvio with around 3 foot of snow. Having trouble with crap WiFi at the hotels, so will try to upload pics ASAP.
