Blighty is a term used by the soldiers during WWI when they had leave to go to England. This was often to recover from serious injury or shock or just to have a break from the anguish of the conflict.
So I am off to Blighty to pick up Henry III and begin part two of my therapy.
What I have learned:
1. Read the road rules before driving in Europe
2. Don't buy an Orange SIM card
3. Don’t trust Duty Free salespeople and/or Customs
4. Earphones are handy but earplugs are essential
5. Be careful when you buy fresh milk in Belgium – it is drinking yogurt and doesn’t taste very nice in coffee
6. Limitations are mental – not physical.
7. Paper maps still trump GPS
8. I will not miss the Slug – and I will not be buying a Peugeot car
9. Driveaway Holidays are a responsible corporate who deal with their problems in a reasonable and accountable manner
10. Orange Mobile France are NOT a responsible corporate who DO NOT deal with their problems in a reasonable and accountable manner
11. Belgian Chocolates are good for you!
12.I have a very cool aunt!
