The Great Escape

... wall but there was a 15 foot drop on one side and an 8 foot drop onto the pavement the other side. Once up, Jayne was stuck...on all fours. A brief risk assessment took place and the conclusion was that this really wasn't a great idea. Plus Jayne was shouting "I'm not going over this wall !". We managed to get Jayne down and I said I'd go over and run down to the bus stop and get the bus to wait. It was an excellent panic. I told Jayne to go back and keep ...

Tomorrow we were going to try and get out for some jolly japes on the high seas.

There's a mix of Brits & other Europeans here and very few young ones. There's plenty of the sandal & socks brigade here. We speak to few of them and it turns out there's lots of retired Brit expats here. The place is very hilly and so we ...

... again later on in September that year, but gave up after the locals dropped boulders on their ships from the high cliffs known as Los Gigantes. Bristol Airport is not the place to hang around for any amount of time but eventually we went to Gate 26 to board our Thompson flight to Tenerife. It was a Boeing 757 and it was packed. Why people put themselves through this ordeal for a week ...
