If only you knew isinkwe how desperate we are to get back....like so many other 'mites I fully expect. In fact we are just getting everything ready to collect our grandson who is finishing his exams this week and as a treat for working so hard we are driving him down through France and Italy. Now, I am pretty hopeless at technology but on my 'list to do and take' for the trip, I said to SO last night " we will be able to access the flight consolidators while we are away, won't we. I don't want to miss a flight sale". Our plan is to be back in November and come hell or high water, we are determined to make that happen...so you will get another TR asap
