What did you do today ? … I went to Switzerland and back !

When two good friends who I met on twitter invited me to go the Geneva Motor Show, I thought to myself, that sounds expensive, but after reluctantly asking the question “sounds great, how much is it?” you could have knocked me down with a feather! All in all return flight, entrance to the show itself and parking at the Airport ….. £86 yes £86 …… or I could get a return train journey from Haddenham & Thame Parkway to Manchester for £88.60, £2.60 dearer, how can this be?

So it was a date. Up early at 4:30am with a great run to Luton Airport, well off site parking 10 minutes away. To say it was cold at that time of the day would be an understatement, not sure how cold, but cold enough to freeze the … well you get the picture. As you dont even really have to go outside at the Geneva end, a small light jacket was all I was taking and wow was I cold waiting for the transfer bus to the Airport!

Paul and Dave were already at the airport, we were already checked in online, so up to the long “disney” queue we went. Security is so hot at Airports which is understandable, but I wish they would realise thats its going to take longer to check everyone and employ more staff. Anyway as always I get “bleeped” and get frisked…. always by a man, I never get the women!

It was too early (for them) for a pint so a quick cup of coffee, sit down and we were off to Geneva.

We were meeting Richard at that end and he arrived the same time as us, you would have thought we planned it!

Once inside the show, it was amazing with all the BIG boys there, with £££££ worth or cars. If you know me you will know I am the biggest Mercedes fan in the world, so could not wait to get to their stand and when I did I was not disappointed, every make, every model #Heaven !

After spending around five hours at the show, which was just right, it was a quick pint, before the homeward bound journey started.

All in all it was a great laugh and day out … and yes if invited, will be going next year.
