After a grossly cramped flight over to the UK, which pressed together more humans per square foot than is wise, I am living out of a suitcase as we visit friends and family. My blog will therefore suffer over the next couple of weeks, but I must pass on this story from the Times (12.12.07):
A Christmas shopping trip to Lille in France ended in the wrong country when the coach driver mis-programmed his satellite navigation system. Instead of the bustling market, 50 passengers went to the village of Lille in Belgium, without any shops. Members of the Cheltenham and Gloucester building society social club want a refund. Pullman Coaches of Swansea is investigating.
