Paul's training has kicked in. The Ironman in Copenhagen is on 23rd August. Paul went up the valley this morning (on another beautiful day).

We left the snow behind as we drove into Switzerland towards Geneva. The GPS co-ordinates got us close to the car park but we were on the wrong side of the fence. We could see it but not get to it. We managed to work out how to get there using the maps provided and driving 3 km to ...
