    hi dave.
    we have driven about 2000k around france and ditched the car at Hertz versailles, rather than drive in Paris itself. We stood on top of the arc de triumphe and watched out over Paris as motorists, bikers, pushbikers, auto rickshaws, buses etc , somehow revolved around the arc without smashing into each other. we were amazed to say the least.. We did a tour on the double Red buses around the city. The pace is frantic, have to queue for everything in these countries.
    We are heading to Scotland to meet with friends now iin the uk but are currently shivering in Dover at 13 with wind-driven rain.
    Driving here on the left is far better than France and Switzerland. ( one close call in France to avoid a learner on the motorway)
    We have met lots from your country over here and from Canada. They have all been happy travellers.
    so its Scotland ho Dave. :) from here on in for two weeks.
    Cheers, Al.

    Hi Al
    I'm almost green with envy with your trip!!

    It sounds like a good time being had. Not sure about Dubai, but the indoor skiing there might almost be worth it though I had my fill of broiling and sandy countries, especially Egypt, Kuwait and Saudi. From seeing the European weather these past few weeks, that sure could have been better, but it does look better for the most part.

    I agree that getting back to your 'native' language after a while away is really a great feeling. I've struggled on trips and have to say that even flying into New York City and their so-called English sounded good after an extended trip.

    I hope you are able to head North to Scotland or at least the Yorkshire Dales/Hadrian's Wall as much of that is the way England was not too many years ago. Also, they drive on the LH side of the road which should be somewhat easier for you - and the traffic anywhere near London is about as bad as anywhere in the world.

    Have a safe rest of the trip
