    Gearbox disaster advice please

    I was accelerating up a slight hill this evening behind another car, so was only moderate accel. Changed into 3rd and a massive crunch!!! I backed off for a moment and pushed back into 3rd. Which seemed ok, then i attempted 4th. Nothing. Oh dear. I seem to be stuck in 3rd. The gate still feels ok? But a slighlty loser feel to the gearbox into gates. Couldn't seem to select any other gear, so 18miles from home i decided to drive back preying for no red lights. After a few 360's in the middle of the roads at red lights to keep my momentoum i got home.
    Pulled up, strange, push into reverse, no reverse yet it feels like it's trying to drive didn't want to push it. But every other gear feels like 3rd. Even in neutral.

    Any ideas what ive done? Im stuck abroad in Switzerland, i saw a mate of mine get stung for nearly 3k for a blown cylinder head at a Mitsubishi main stealer. So naturally im bricking it now.
