Iain and I are heading off the the Alps in south-east Germany. Oberstdorf to be exact. We are going to be meeting Dietrich and Reingart, Sabina, Inger, Neil and Christina. I, for one, am looking forward to the clear mountain air, the alpine meadows and the festival of bringing the animals down from the high pastures.

Iain has polished his boots and laid out all the stuff for his back-pack. We leave on the Fort William to London sleeper tonight. The station is only 5 blocks from the house! Then it's the Eurostar to Paris and, after visiting folk in Paris, it's the train to Frankfurt, Ulm and lastly Oberstdorf.

Got the Euros, the mobile phone, the digi and a clutch of train tickets. The best view is looking back. (Not exactly Patrick Leigh Fermor but the idea is the same!)
