In August Gordon will then have been at his company for 25 years,
and he's getting for a bonus of three weeks paid holiday. So we've
decided to hire a car and drive around Eastern Europe. We'll be
leaving towards the end of August, and our aim there is to visit as
many countries as we can. We're flying out to Budapest - soon we're
due to catch a plane on the 28th day - and then we'll be stopping over
at a friend's house, before starting our grand tour. We'll most probably
spend the best part of a week in Hungary. When we've just finished
there, we'll probably be go to Romania, but beyond that we haven't
planned too much arrangements. We will know a bit more by the end
of this week, when we're getting a whole load of brochures from the
tourist board. We'd like to get to as far as Russia, but realistically I
doubt whether we'll have time. I hope it won't be too expensive –
from till now on we'll really have to tighten our belts! I can't wait!
In just over two months' of time we'll be having the time of our lives!
