1: In August of 2010 Christopher, Claire, Graeme and Owen set off on an adventure. The day to leave arrived and with our backpacks and cases, off we went.....until someone nearly left in our cab, a typical Stott situation. Finally at the airport, on the plane and squished into the smallest seats possible the plane took off. Here are our memories... We went to new places, met family and reconnected with others, made friends, discovered castles, dared the roads, found the bookshops, enjoyed the beach, loved the Museums, mastered The Tube and ate a lot of fish, chips and mushy peas. The sun shone for us nearly every day. We were thrilled to have been there but happy to come home... CHEERS
