Nice unplanned trip courtesy of my parents air miles :)
The whole Dennis clan on holiday never runs smoothly so why would this trip be any different. From the moment we landed in Toulouse the fun and games started. The car we hired wasn't the biggest and my parents had use the fact that we weren't on a no frills flight to bring as much luggage filled with random items for the house (eg badminton racquet and a table for the pool) as physically possible, in fact our clothing allowances were limited! Anyway the car was small and we had lots of bags, so my sister, brother and I were squeezed into the back with a suitcase and all the hand luggage (we are all in our twenties so this was quiet impressive!). The fun didn't stop there, my dad doesn't do maps so not only did we not have a route planner for the trip there was no French map in the car, skip to a very frustrated mother at the side of a road somewhere between Auch and Mirande after we had taken the wrong road without knowing it :) Thank goodness for my brothers I phone, after close to 4 hours we arrived at the house, yay!
