As you can see, Dixie and Tilly are very excited. They’re all packed, there’s more dog food than human food in the van, their passports have been checked and they can’t wait to be off. Just a couple more days, then it’s off to France for 6 weeks.
Tilly has been learning some key French phrases such as:
‘Do you sell Jumbones?’
‘Of course I could eat two!’
‘Where might I find a dead seagull?’ (See last year’s post, ‘The Labrador And The Seagull’) and
‘Have you got any spare bits of food, my mummy and daddy don’t feed me enough?’
Dixie says she can’t be bothered learning any French, she’ll just bark louder.
We have no real plans, but are just hoping to find nice places to walk – maybe in the Massif Central, the Alps and Jura. We’ve done bits in the Alps before, but not the other two areas. Yuri (from Twitter), has given us lots of information about Jura though, and it looks rather nice.
Anyway, I might tweet the odd thing, but the blog’ll be very quiet ’till September. Hope everyone out there has a fantastic summer – we’ll soon be on the countdown to Christmas again!!!
