A year on, the destination remains the same - Abroad, and the people remain the
same albeit a year older and wiser.
This year we chose the tough travel day as day one and so it proved. Rain and a dense sea fog greeted the arrival at Dover followed by gale force winds. The Channel was crossed in treacherous storm conditions!
Even those of us taking the land option had to brave broken rails on the rail line but this did not deter them.
Troyes is the Mecca of shopping with three outlet villages, but should really be called Troyes-A-Result-For-The-Boys, because they are all closed on a Sunday which is when we had planned to visit.
