That was the year that was #3

Continuing the popular series on some of last year’s highs and highers, things hot up as we hit the Alps…

France

A bit of boating, a bit of drinking and a bit of work. In that order.

You can have it your way… In Norway…

After 3 days on the road, I finally reached Sjoa. The next 3 weeks saw epic water levels, a sucessfully run ‘Discover Norway’ trip (see http://www.tomparkercoaching.co.uk for more details), Jam, cheap suits, parties and some great boating.

15 year record levels made for excellent playboating
on the Sjoa. Pic: TT.

So, to conclude this instalment, consider these pearls of wisdom;

Norway is a long way from everywhere, ‘Trevor’ is an excellent name for a beer, never accept rugs from others, as you don’t know where they’ve been until it’s too late and the ‘Local Stuff’ will soon be available at your local too.

Join us next time as we reach the final furlong and have a quick round up of the autumn…
