Bonjour Bertrand, don't scratch too much or you'll have no hair left!!
I don't think anyone has used the word emergency and I'm not sure I would apply it to this situation.
Basically it's someone who partway into a trip is now being abandoned by her travel companion who has to return to the UK unexpectedly. She's a woman on her own, and is hoping there might be others in the area who want to travel with her for a while, or maybe longer. she's an experienced traveller but has never been on her own before.
you may be interested to hear that my first bit of advice was to get a large glass of wine and drink it!!
hopefully that clarifies things, and yes, as soon as I know WHERE she is heading I will let you all know!
PS I still have your socks Bertrand - they have achieved legendary status with my sisters.
