Our dear family and friends

We awoke to the terrible news of the evil attack in Nice during the Bastille Day evening celebrations.

We are a long way from there and quite safe. It doesn't detract from the tragedy in Nice.

We will be staying in the Burgundy region until 29 July. We leave Dijon for an overnight stay in Geneva before flying home to Melbourne.

Thank you for your care and wonderful comments on our blog!

Jan, Mabel, Lyn and Neville

Safe travel
Hi Jan, Thanks for your reassurance. So glad you are safe. My two precious young people are due to fly to Brussels, and then France, early Sunday morning, along with 100 others from Legacy Australia. Ian and I are wondering if we will receive a call to say the trip is cancelled. Part of me wants that, so I know they are safe, but part of me says that is letting the terrorists have a victory. I am worried, confused and angry that so much planning by so many wonderful people might all be for nothing. Stay safe. XX

Thanks God that you are away from it. My friend's daughters are in Nice but they were at the hotel when it happened.

Dear Jan, as always your blog is a great read, combined with great photos .... lovely to see everyone having a fabulous time - scenery, history, food, wine ... it was especially good to read the latest message confirming that you are all safe; a long way from Nice.
