To Britain: bus, flight and car hire

We left a sunny Pessac for our journey to the UK. Number 48 bus from Pessac centre. The same driver as all the other times I've taken that bus. I wanted to stand and chat with him but the whole family were there and the kids get embarrassed...

Then easily through security and into the café. They called our flight. We staggered off to the holding pen. They checked our bags in the gauge. All were fine. Phew !

After an easy flight we went to pick up our hire car, pre booked and prepaid. "OK, you booked a small car and we have a Fiat 500 lined up for you. But we could upgrade you."

"To what and for how much?"

After pledging a king's ransom in addition to the arm and leg we had already paid, we drove off in a Peugeot 207. We got Pat and Gwilym's phones working, but not their GPS... So we had a circuitous journey to Bath. One day I must learn that route.
