can it be a gin-and-tonic-fest also ? I read once that port was 'discovered' in the Netherlands, after bringing back wine from Portugal and it upped its strength on the voyage. is that true ?

Hmm. I need to be in London on the 9th, 10th, 17th & 20th of March. Which leaves a gap of exactly the right time-frame. Unfortunately I also need to have the car in London. If I can figure out a way of getting the bike there too (somehow driving the car to Rotterdam would be infinitely less fun) then I'll join you!

obviously, if you don't get the motorbike there you could take a Boris bike for a long weekend away (use someone else credit card to pay for it though!). or, the third muskateer might not be motorbiking due to a gammy knee, so I suspect there may be some sort of train and ferry action.

Well the work on 17th & 20th has now been taken away from me , which potentially gets rid of the car/bike/London scenario, but unfortunately also gets rid of the cash to pay for exotic and, more expensively, fuel to get there

So I will have to pass

Have fun!

Would be nice to be there...

Hi guys,

it would be very nice to be with you... but I am pretty busy working right now... and with my little son Pablo(15 months) I have to work at home too.

But anyway - I wish you a great weekend!!!

Maybe you can join us at the HU Germany Meeting in June?
