We're an international and very mixed group, staying for a week in a mountain hut directly on the slope in an Austrian ski/snowboard resort. As we're not in the village but on the mountain, you can only get there skiing/boarding and our après ski will be the crazy group games that we'll do together - just as we'll be cooking and eating together etc. As we're organizing this ourselves (this is not a commercial offer) it's rather affordable. Please check http://www.crazycamp.org/csc and if you have any additional questions, please ask!

My Mother and Father were in Barcelona when they got caught up in the flight problems, they had no option but to put up in a hotel as there was no information given and could not get through to Ryan Air - on Sunday they had had enough and decided to try and get to Calais so they hired a car country by country to avoid the cross border charges but even so they paid a fortune and eventually when we heard that the channel ports were so full went and picked them up from Dunkirque. Both my parents looked awful after such an ordeal but were fine once we got them home with us. We have just been told that Ryan Air will only pay for expenses up to the cost of the flight so now have to see if their insurance will cover the rest, but I thought that if it was an EU carrier they were obliged to pay all reasonable expenses - anyone know if this is the case and if so how can Ryan Air get away with this?

We are supposed to be going to drive to the UK tonight via the Chunnel to spend New Year there - but just seen the weather reports for the Cotswolds (where we are heading) - Anyone know if there are problems on the roads because of snow there. We will be in a 4 x 4 but my wife is getting a bit worried about getting stuck there and is threatening to cancel the trip. If anyone has info I would be most grateful.

To celebrate my 70th birthday next year I plan to walk from my home in the Aude to the house in Blackpool, Lancashire, where I was born. Taking 70 days for the walk and arriving at the house of my birth exactly 70 years after the event. I have a blog for interested parties at: http://vicsbigwalk.blogspot.com

We decided to go down to France last week-end on the old Triumph, and ended up staying at Classic bike camping in Charente, just off the RN10 north of Angouleme. It is a great bikers site run by a Scottish couple, and ideally located if you are going south to Spain/Portugal. They accept motorcycles, bicycles and smaller campervans Their website is www.classicbikecamping.com
