I don't have a holiday until September. Until then, I'll just content myself with reading Kim Ayres' account of his travels this month from Castle Douglas to Brittany.
"Ten miles from Dover I was feeling pleased with our progress... In the sweltering heat I asked Maggie to pull out the directions I’d printed off to find the Premier Travel Inn motel I’d booked for us to stay in the night before taking the ferry to France. “Is it supposed to have tomorrow’s date on it?” she asked."
