We were offered 8£ a month on a 24 month contract , 20 MG per month
Who's offering that Sandra? Is that a phone sim or mifi?

Itís MIFI Jean

I usually pay £20+, 20Mg a month for two months when we travel with 3Three

As a months notice is required I was cancelling today and was offered the £8 deal

Decided to go with it as the cost over 12 months is much the same as a couple of trips a year

I find 3Three MIFI totally reliable for my IPad Iíve never run out at 20Mg a month and I cost it as part of my holiday expenditure

We were talking about doing some shorter trips in the UK in between the longer trips once we go home

So it made sense

Iíve found a firm in the north that makes tow ball carriers for trikes so will call on them to discuss a bespoke one and buy an electric trike when we get home

Iím really stuck without some method of transport, a mile is so near and yet so far

If that firm doesnt work out Sandra it might be worth talking to Armitage trailers in Ferrybridge. http://www.armitagetrailers.com/

They do all sorts of stuff for motorhomes. They definitely make the best scooter rack. Even if they dont have one for a trike I bet they could modify something for you. You have seen what a doddle mine is.

Yes they put the tow bar on our motorhome

Is a heavy duty one made to carry a scooter rack although our scooter was a bit too heavy

So weight is not a problem with a trike+ bike

We will sort it, just not this trip

We are on a car park in Saverne

To be fair there is an aire at Ä7 + a charge for water and electric

Itís on the same car park just futher down

As we filled and emptied before leaving today we donít require any services

Alberts gone off with the hound , there is a canal just down from us

We may drive to have a quick look at the castle in the morning before we leave

We are prob heading for Strasbourg as itís a while since weíve been there

Then down the wine route to see the villages

The weather has been brilliant today

We are at Kehl, close to Strasbourg

On a stellplatz

Ä8 a night , electric one or two Ä , havent worked out if itís by time or usage

Went out today and left the aircon on for the hound , still running when we got back

Just under a mile to the town centre , about the same to the supermarket, a doddle with a bike

A HanauerLandMarkt today and tomorrow , with people wearing traditional dress and regional produce

And guess what I found in the town ?

Tomorrow Strasbourg, a mile down the Rhine to the tram , and then we are taking a boat trip to see the sites

Walked just over two miles today, admittedly with the help of of anti inflam medication, which Iím not supposed to take

And my joints are a bit iffy now, but wine definately eases them

Glad the weather is holding out. Just arrived in Flamborough (Again) weather is a bit naff, got the fire on but its a reasonable forecast.

There is a Woolworths in Fussen, Bavaria. looks similar sign to that. Sounds like your at least getting about now. Two miles is impressive. Its about 1.8 more than I could do right now. I can Kayak further than I can walk and faster although it looks a bit choppy today. Enjoy the Rhine.

Depends on the day Barry

Getting back was a bit of an ordeal , I feel every slope on the pavement , and it did take a couple of hours

Lay down for a while and dozed and feel fine now

I loved Woolworths as a kid , seemed to be one at every holiday resort , where you spent your allowance

So we had a walk round , full of Christmas stuff , bought some paper plates for late breakfasts/lunch when travelling

Iím hoping I can cycle when I eventually get a tricycle

Meanwhile Albert does all the cycling to supermarkets, dog runs etc

I have loaned our electric bikes to my daughter along with two batteries

She cycled 29 miles today in hills with her cycling fanatic husband

When we get home Alberts getting an electric bike but with 26 inch wheels

I was going to sell our two, but we need to prize them away from her first

The weather here is fantastic, no need for heaters , a bit hot for us during the day

We ran the heater briefly this morning whilst we showered , then the aircon to cool it down for the hound

We are not rushing, the call for home needs to be ignored till the 30th of Oct

As our son and his new family have our home

And possibally we will need to share it a bit longer when we get back

Iíve yet to meet my new grandson

He weighs 10lb now, apparently with the Birthmark !!!!

Itís strange, Albert has a birth mark on the back of his neck in his hairline, quite pronounced

All of our kids and grandkids have been born with same mark

On some it fades over time on some it remains

Itís the Malloen streak

Leaving Strasbourg till tomorrow

Yesterday was a bit too much and joints are very stiff today, even Alberts struggling with his knees

Still have to walk a mile to the tram along the Rhine so not today

Weather here magnificent, apparently Alsace has the lowest rain fall in France

So just a restful day doing not a lot
