LOL! About ten years ago I remember posting on here some madcap idea about getting hold of a fast rowing boat and rowing across France from the channel to the Med using the canals and river systems for charity. Totally bonkers. I once did a sponsored row in my early 20s from Fort William to Inverness single handed in an old wooden Norwegian clinker built rowing boat including Loch Ness (about 70 miles I think in total) so I guess I thought "how hard can it be"

Yes, a really long paddle! I heard Romania is a beautiful country. However I have always dreamed of going to Slovenia, wandering in a motorhome.

Iím currently reading up on all the relevant safety/traveling rules as these change faster than you can count to 5. Luckily, I came across www.travelsafe-abroad.com/slovenia/ to help me brush up on all things Slovenia and get ready for my trip. Itís gonna be awesome.

Wimp. Thats the time to go out of season.

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

Except it isn't. I wont change anyones minds I guess but to me June, July and August are the best months especially around the Alps and even in the UK it seems after this tour. Best chance of decent weather for a kick off and on this UK trip its just got busier the colder and grimmer it gets. August on Arran was only half as busy with vans as it was second week in September onwards when all the "lets avoid the school holidays" brigade got going. It was the same in south western Scotland after that and its the same in many parts of Europe IMO. Slovenia or at least the best parts of it are in the Triglav Alps. It will be pretty grim there by now I would imagine.
