    It can be such a scary thing as we have to suppress our learned reflexes and not automatically make the wrong move which would normally be the correct move. The first time I drove over there, the guy at the car rental told me as I was leaving: "Just follow the car in front of you.". But this almost backfired when I was following @Rev in his Z8 one day as we came to a "T" in the road and he made a right turn. I followed his example except that when I was stopped waiting to turn, looked the wrong way to see who was coming and when it was clear, pulled out almost hitting a van coming towards me on my right. I saw it at the last possible instant and was able to stop enough for him to make it around me but it was SOOOOO CLOSE!!!!!. I know I'd stressed out several UK drivers THAT day!!!! Frankie

    Ok, so I've recovered enough to sort out my photos. It's been great going through them all to see which ones to upload. Relived the weekend again - brilliant.

    Is that the pic of the zeds infront of the flanders fields museum @Mr C ? Lee took it with his Go Pro so depends on what one would be best for @Redline to use to be able to edit it best. :)

    @Mint there is a really funny pic of me watching @pgunter eating his cherry pie lol!! Think it needs a caption lol =))
