France 2019 - Some holiday pics.

Horrible weather at the minute so here's some clips from last years holiday to look at , mostly mountains ' cos that's what we like. Apologise for the music that gets on your nerves but it comes with the quickie 'make video' programme.

Some fine photography dear boy. Thanks.



I would recognise the blue/white banded shirt anywhere.


I was trying to identify several spots.


We certainly like similar places, but always better if you two can be there.


How is the winter music scene going and the planning for the coming Summer?


We are in the middle of jousting with the Polish Immigration for a Temporary Resident Permit to avoid the 90/180 Schengen rule(but they have not sorted the form, 2 weeks before Brexit - I hate Administrators). I seem to remember you are sorted for Schengen by virtue of ROI passport, lucky b*gger.


Also with the Polish Tax man who wants to know tax we paid in UK in 2015 FFS. It is all up-to-date in UK and I owe nothing in Poland by virtue of Double-Taxation agreement. All just hassle.


Ah well, we fight on.


Best wishes to you and Jayne from Basia and I.

Some great photos there Alan. Recognised a few places but not all. That one near the end is a favourite spot of ours, Domme in the Dordogne. Often end up there end of season. As for the music. Flipping heck!! All the musical talent in your family and you put on something from a 1970s public information film. You should be ashamed of yourself! Nil Points!

When Jayne's filming from the back of the scooter on that Tunnel de la Fayolle I can't enjoy the scenery for checking the road in front!!

Great photos!

Leave our Alan alone. He explained he could not change it and apologised in advance for the music.


At least what his family puts out beats anything you post ....and his daughter can sing. Motes in eyes etc.


Now get yourself back to FC, where we can really tell you what we think.

How do you know? You never listen to any of it.

He should have had that lovely daughter of his singing a nice Enya style ballad over it. Of course she can sing better than me. Im a Rock God. Rock Gods dont have to be able to sing.

Sorry Alan, just ignore the old wind bag.

We often use William the Conq's Castle, Falaise as a first overnight. A rather humorous moment as we dandered around was when the better half got a bit confused stating that the statue of William at our castle in Carrickfergus depicts him as quite small.
History was never her strong point. 😄

You always gave advise well after we passed the place

No way could we access your suggestions without a scoter

Iím sure you were pissed off because

My photo of the star was better than yours

Love from both of us
