Big as in comparision to what???.... Canada...Ha Ha!! Considering all of the UK fits inside of Ontario alone, I would say us Canadians don't think it is very far to travel between on end of Britian to the other.

lmao lmao

I saw this coming... Really I did! laugh

Right. We will be staying in Stevenage, Herts. with the in-laws, but can travel around a bit, within reason of course. It tends to get a bit expensive. wink Surely a mutual meeting place can be organised that will be best for all.

Oh, this is so exciting!!!! bemused

Actually I think Ontario is much bigger, I heard once that Britian can actually fit into Ontario three times, but I dont know if that is correct or not. I am pretty sure it fits in at least once with room to grow
laugh

I find this often though, for me driving from Edinburgh to my boat in Skye and back in one day is dueable, but for a lot of people here it would have to be a weekend event. I guess we are just used to big roads and long distances between major cities and dont think twice about it smile

Mrs. X, assuming I'm in the UK at some time during your visit I will pop over for a meet - I can also take you further afield should some of the others not be able to make it to Stevenage.

Oi, just remember that size isn't everything and that it's what you do with what you've got that means that you do whatever or something... laugh

Anyway, most of your lot speak French so you can't be that hard. wink

Thanks, Paul! smile But people don't necessarily have to come to us, we can go to them, too! It's just that if we're travelling by train, we don't want to go too far across the country as it gets a bit expensive.

But I do appreciate the offer of a lift. smile And it would be great to meet you if you're back in the UK by then!

Size doesn't matter - it's how you use what you've got. wink

Not by choice!! I know Sassy's not much older than me, so perhaps she went through the same horror of being forced to take French all through school. :p I, personally, was never bilingual, and have lost a lot of what I learnt over the years, so I can say quite proudly that I do not speak French!! laugh (Well, not a lot of it, anyway...)

By the way, Si, I'm inclined to agree with Sassy on this one. Canada is about 1,000,000 times larger than all of the UK, so we wouldn't think too much about travelling through a small part of it (England). laugh
Mrs. X
Yep but you have to remember how Shite the motorways in the UK can be - the easiest journey turns into an odyssey!!

Oh I know how that is! I've been there before! A five minute taxi ride turns out to be almost half an hour. (Can't remember where we were going at the time.) I have never seen so much traffic before in my life!! shock
