Well Steve, you know: badges are important. Unfortunately the Rhossili one, the Swiss roll at Premier store, wasn't available, so I swapped it with a similar one.

I hope you have been able to get some good flying in between sampling all the culinary delights that the UK is rightly famed for. Italian ice cream and danish pastries etc, etc....

Unfortunately flying was a bit lacking. Just had few nice sessions, one on Lundy, one on Rhossili and one on back of the wrecker. Today and tomorrow should be good to have another couple.

But most important I met several pilots I knew in my past travels to UK and had a great time with lot of nice people and skilled pilots.

Oh, and tons of pictures and videos...

Yes, for sure. Get in touch if you come and we could go on Cima di Medeglia or Cavaldrossa and fly.

Safe journey back home Ric and hopefully catch up again soon

Thanks Les!

Back to reality: thinking, designing, building, flying gliders... and a lot of gardening waiting for pre winter works.

Thanks, looking forward for that.

The journey to Dover was easy and straightforward: 4h20m.

I was then three hours earlier and decided to finally visit the Dover castle.

By the way, the last evening I went to Il Vecchio in Bridgend.

Wow, I was really surprised about quality. Great, real tasting lasagne, served without French fries; a real, original babba and, surprise, a real Neapolitan espresso.

So if someone next in Bridgend would like to feel the Italian atmosphere and taste, I could only suggest it 😋
