    Hi Alex,

    Ive cancelled the hotels but couldnt cancel the Eurostar (gits) So ive got a crossing ticket left open to be used within a year.

    Im really sorry mate.. so wanted to come, but i started to feel a bit guilty about spending all that money on myself, especially because i havnt taken Ellie away this year yet :(

    It was the right decision to take, but not an easy one beleive me :(

    Im still going to get the stickers done for you all though :)

    No worries mate, I understand, the power of woman is formibable! ;)

    It's a real shame you can't come though, you will be missed!

    I really hope Ali can make it! Not sounding too promising though :(

    Evening guys. Got speaking to someone the other day who's been to Switzerland a few times and he's said that we've really got to be careful with the cameras because

    a) they dont paint them bright yellow
    b) they are basically a concrete block on the floor that you would never guess was a camera

    Basically he only knew because of his tomtom beeping away at him letting him know! Also... what are we doing about our headlights? Do we have to have them adjusted for driving on the other side of the road?

    Oh excellent. Cheers mate! Didnt think it was as simple as a couple of clicks of the mouse. I'm thinking of getting one myself. Sounds as though it'll save me a load of hassle

    Yeah, we will have to be careful on the Swiss motorways, should be fine on the alps though.

    Been thinking about getting something like that, where do you get yours from and how much did it cost? I think the S270 also has Europe and is a fair bit cheaper.

    One other thing with headlights. Having just returned from a week's holiday with my A3 in Switzerland, most Swiss drivers drive with dipped headlights or DRLs on at all the times. Auto-lights are extremely useful as well because of the number of tunnels. Remember Swiss law requires the use of headlights in all tunnels and the speed limit in most tunnels is 100kph or 60mph. Quite a few tunnels have radar units built-in to the tunnels to check on excessive speed.

    Yea I got told about the tunnels too about it being law to have your lights on in them. Shouldn't effect me too much because I always have my DRL's on and have auto lights. Apparently not much in the form of road lighting out there either.

    Hey guys. Just to let you know that I might not be able to do this. An opportunity has come up that I can't afford to miss. I'll know for sure if I can come the week before we're due to leave. Shame because I was really looking forward to it!!
