First blog of the holiday or perhaps trip is the more appropriate terminology, given the experiences and challenges encountered.
Just found this blogging application for my phone, so I will give it a go and pass around the link - certainly easier than individual emails and postcards don't come cheap (just spent £6 on the things, which is the equivalent of 12 dinners!)
Sitting in the bar at the Hiker Youth Hostel we are staying at (sleeping in a bunk bed for the first time since I was 16). Thought we would chill out for a bit with our substitution for beer (a bottle of beer is the price of two meals, so we have had to make do with sprite and coke).
Not much happening just listening to music from the 90's and trying to eaves drop on some French conversation to see what I can understand - it's all in the name of eduction, seriously!
