The last weekend of June found me camping near Skipton, in the Yorkshire Dales for our VT Ooop North Camping Weekend, this was organised by alyf1961, who also organised the first VT meet of
July Skipton Sheep Day.
A week later, I was in Zurich, where I was very well looked after by yumyum (Sonja), who invited me to stay at her home, showed me the sights of her city, organised a VT meet - a day out to Rapperswil, and came with me to see Bruce Springsteen. I arrived home via Geneva.
My next planned trip was a disaster- I was due to fly to Dublin to see Springsteen, which I was really looking forward to, especially as I had planned to see annemariebyrne, who had got me my ticket, and was also going to the concert. Well through a frustrating (and expensive) chain of events, I arrived at Manchester Airport, just as the plane doors were closing.
