As for the Germans, I told myself that maybe they weren't so good at speaking English, but I never met a german that wasn't fluent before. The 3 there on Saturday night were a laugh though
I have done a fair bit of touring in Germany in my rock n roll days, so I know Germans have a slightly different sense of humour!
Kev - Thanks, very kind words, you made me blush

That always makes the walking twice as difficult so much kudos for not packing it in and carrying on.
Hope you get better weather next time.
I'm alright with a soaking, its when the wind is up as well and you get slapped in the face with it constantly.. Not knowing if the wet on your face is sweat, rain or dreepy nose snot.. Oh the joys of this pastime are endless...
I am blessed by the bad weather faerie.. Never any good weather for BC Its my dad, and Liethy that have the weather gods on side.. When we going out again Leithy?

I try not to understand my weather charm - I don't want it to desert me .

Oh I think it makes for a boring report when you do the same route as ahbody else and it all goes to plan

However, most admirable for me was the way you just shrugged off the glorious conditions that were revealed the following morning - I'd have been fuming at the hand the weather gods had dealt - never mind having to set the fire as the last to depart.
Well done and what's next?
