  1. I thought it was good, showed a lot of promise. Nice car reviews and Ethiopia looks stunning. That's one of the reasons I watch Top Gear and the Grand Tour, I like to see parts of the world I wouldn't normally see. I have never seen that part of Ethiopia. The old Top Gear Vietnam episode is the reason my wife and I went there earlier this year. Stunning country and wonderful people.
  2. Well, you would think so. Immediately that we discovered what had happened, via phone call from the bank, I emailed the restaurant for a comment, I asked them through facebook and twitter to explain. Nothing was heard, so I gave them a couple of days and emailed the local rag. Still nothing from the restaurant. The bank are taking it forward (whatever that means).
  3. Indian Restaurant - Canal side - Stoke Bruerne. Should narrow it down.
  4. Just an update, we had a good weekend, weather could have been better, we had hail and all sorts. Met some lovely people. Only down side was my mum had a her card cloned in a canal side restaurant, that, we later found out on TripAdvisor, has a history of such things. How can they get away with it?
  5. Hello, haven't been on for quite some time. Going for a short break from Friday from Gayton. Looking forward to it. Taking my wife, my mum and my daughter, who is now 13 ( I remember announcing her birth on here). Different wife now though. Will wave if I see any boats I recognise.
  6. Went for a lovely ride on the K&A yesterday, from Bradford on Avon to Caen Hill and back again. A fair few boats on the move and a few walkers and cyclists. There was also a fishing match on so we had to play "dodge the poles", luckily our bells are quite loud so most of the fishermen heard us coming. We helped a lady who had fallen in trying to get on her boat and then for my good deed I was rewarded with a puncture - which was annoying as I had left my spare tube at home!. Still, it was only a 2 mile walk back to the car so not too bad.
  7. Good luck and well done. Having just returned from Samos and seen first hand the struggles that people must be going through, you have my support.
  8. Had my one and only capsize on one of those Medway things. Not nice, it was a very cold November day. I have actually been in a collision with a narrow boat, glancing blow in Thrupp. My fault, forgot my corrective stroke.
  9. I have seen those before, not convinced about the rigidity of them personally!
  10. Your best bet is a sit on top. Can be had reasonably cheaply. I have a Feel Free roamer which is perfect on canals. Not as pretty as my Canadian canoe but it does the job.
  11. I watched Chris Froome win again. I don't really get into international football, seems to me that most of the England team lack passion.
  12. My civic has been diagnosed with a faulty crank position sensor today. Not happy. It had a big service on Wednesday, engine management warning light came on yesterday.....
  13. Nope. However I am genuinely sorry that you will not be in the same league as us next season.
  14. Right. Back in Blighty now! Okay, so, firstly we turned up a bit early, as is my habit and informated the staff that we had arrived but that we were going for a walk and then lunch, I find that this way you identify yourself with someone and they recognise you on return. They did. We went up to the desk and the very helpful young lady confirmed the booking details and told us to go and load up the boat. We did this, she then sped through a blue folder of important stuff which mainly consisted of which restaurants to avoid! After a short while a chap appeared at the boat and asked if I had used this type of boat before, I hadn't. He then told me where everything was amd how it worked, and, Erm, that was that! Off we went into the windy basin! To be fair, the boat was great, weather wasn't but we did have a nice time. The lockies are splendid and great fun. We saw an otter. At the end, they calculated that we had only used 13 hours of engine time and as we had paid 150 up front, they ended up owing us money, which was nice. The Canal Du Midi is nice, not sure I would go back to that part though. No really a lot to do.
  15. Just sitting in a canal side bar. We ate discussing the differences between UK canals and the Midi. One of which is the handover process. I will elaborate once we have handed the boat back.
