Dear Adventurer
As you read this, UK border force permitting, I will be travelling back from France  having crossed the Channel on luxury French ice-breaker Le Commandant Charcot. More about that in the next issue. Meantime, I just wish the weather would warm up! Time to head for wamer climes? Get looking, get planning, get in touch.
