You need to buy tickets for dogs at the same time as your own - mit is on the next page online. £20 each - each way. So not cheap.

Thanks gb and dmu. Mine(s) of information as always.

We are taking our two dogs to the UK for a week. Never done it before.

Re: Road to a Grecian turn?

The ECB is trying to emphasise that to members. Of course, IF they are still sovereign, whether they choose to implement Lex Monetae is a sovereign matter. But they cannot, I would think, set it to...

TP is right. Commuting is VERY stressful. I did it for one week a month (which is much easier) for about five years. I loved the Dordogne, but travel to the UK is a bit more from there, which is one...
