Been past Laon a few times but never had the chance to visit, looks really impressive from the motorway.

Yeah, we have driven past it so many times but never stopped off at it, but we had some spare time before our ferry. It was lovely, we lucked out as the town was holding a medieval festival this weekend (not so good on the parking front but managed to find a space). We could easily spend more time there.

That trip sounds really cool OS.

strawberry float me I need a proper holiday. Having our trip moved to early/mid next year has been a real psychological blow. That may not even happen either at this rate. We've got a few nights away booked in some posh lodges here and there, so that's something.

Can you not get out and about in your van? To avoid quarantine you could do a mini trip to Germany using the Euro tunnel.

My trip was mostly little short hops, so I'd do a 2 to 4 hour drive in the morning and rock up to the site at lunch time. That way you could spend pretty much the whole day fannying about.

Looking forward to this national lockdown coinciding with and utterly strawberry floating up our UK based holiday, which is a replacement for our already strawberry floated up and cancelled trip. I'll be spending my 40th at home eating a sandwich at this rate for strawberry float sake.

The place in Mexico we would have been going to next week ( :x ) has been evacuated (as in the entire region has) becuase a category 4 hurricane is due to hit imminently. Imagine if the trip had gone ahead :dread: Theres pictures of the guests sat on blankets in corridors at a school they've been taken to.

Not that you'll hear about this on the news of course because nobody cares about that part of the world. I'm sure once an American or British person is hurt, or it suddenly takes a turn up to new Orleans, you'll hear loads about it :simper:

That's because America is the only place in the world which gets hit by hurricanes, or has elections/protests/redneck hillbilly gunfights.

Thankfully, because the restrictions in Scotland allowed hotels to remain open, I've finally been able to get away, heading out to one of the Scottish lochs today which'll be neat.
