New Renault (well almost)

Picking up the replacement Renault Grand Scenic today. Very similar to the old one but this is an automatic with leather interior. Also a little bit longer being a Grand Scenic. Drives well on the way back from Nottingham. Must remember that this is a diesel!!

MGOC Snowdrop Run

The weather is not ideal today but we are participating in the annual snowdrop run organised by the Cambridge MG owners club. We start from Melbourn village after the customary bacon butty and pot of snowdrops. We follow the road to the south and east of Cambridge and then end up next to Ely Cathedral where we park the MGF (ours is 5th from the left). We are having some lunch and then join a tour of the cathedral.  Very informative and a good day out.

Innsbruck – Day II – Christmas day

After having recovered from the previous evening we have a light breakfast and are picked up by James and Liesa who drive us to Achensee where we had coffee. We then drive on to Sixenhof Museum where we see a “live” telling of the Christmas story with donkey, ox and sheep. When we come back outside it is snowing on Christmas day.

Innsbruck – Day I

We have settled into our apartment and after breakfast we have a look round in Innsbruck. While there is no snow in the city , the mountains around Innsbruck are white.

We meet James and Liesa and visit a museum with local arts and crafts. We are then collected later by James and meet Liesa’s parents Karl and Silvia for the first time in their hut. They could not have been more hospitable and have laid on a wonderful spread of food and drinks. While we have tried to make a large dent into all this we are defeated by 1am and go back to our apartment stuffed and well inebriated.

Flying to Innsbruck

Not much to tell apart from us flying to Innsbruck with Easyjet from Tegel. A rather grey and cloudy day in Innsbruck where James is awaiting us. Starting to rain and always amazed how pilots can land in such bad visibility.

Berlin – Day I

We’re off to Berlin and are visiting Susanna and Luka in their new flat. Leaving work early we drive to Gatwick to catch the Easyjet flight to Tegel. We arrive at 21:00 and take a taxi to the Hotel “Hansablick” which is just around the corner. We then have coffee and wine with Susanna.
