We have been in England nearly one month and are experiencing harshest winter in 30 years. Every trip we have done is affected by snow and ice, and as spectacular as it was initially, it is making out trip very hard work.

Had a very good christmas and new year with Andrew's sister in Cornwall and even made news headline dressed up as clowns as we went swimming on New Years Day. Something you will only ever do once in your life, and it was FREEZING!!!!!

Last week, while travelling north, we flowed the snowplough on one of England's main motorway which was reduced to one lane due to blizzard. 

In the forth coming week, we have about 1000 miles to travel and the forecast is for yet more snow. Let's hope we make it.

Off to warmer climate on 20th Jan with 3 weeks in Egypt before returning to UK for a couple of weeks then off skiing in Bulgaria for one week, then back to England and flying to Greece on 18th March and working our way over land back to England (again) for end of May.

Hope winter or summer or the tropical weather is treating you well, look forward to hearing from you.

I couldn't figure out which clown was who...the tallest one is Richard, Allison in yellow t-shirt, Andrew appropriately in pink and Shawn in red & yellow.
