Well just so that everyone can get worried we have diagnosed that overheating problems as a problem with the head gasket. Anyone know a good mechanic? In France?
We’re in Geneva at the moment and have just found an internet cafe. We plan to update the site in a few days to keep an eye out for some new articles. In the meantime we’re both well and have been enjoying the snow!
Setting off early we headed for Italy, just a little drive through a huge mountain range including Mont Blanc (yep that famous white mountain.)
