GE 141 July 1984

15 Feb 2008 Denise said

Hello. Anyone out there from the GE 141 July 1984 (an eon ago- yes, back in the days of portable sound was in the form of a Walkman- which took a cassette-, Swatch were the plastic watches I thought would never catch on, and oversized CHOOSE LIFE t-shirts were all the rage)?!?!?! We had Alan the driver and Alain the French courier. My husband was Dirty Pierre who was one of the 'coach packers'. We kept contact intermittently with a few people years ago but as time goes on.... We often think back about the trip and how much FUN we had. Scarry thing is, our daughter is now old enough to want to do one herself. Would we recommend responsible parents....OF COURSE WE WOULD!! I remember thinking back then how OLD 35 was and I didn't want to get that it's a case of 'I wish I was 35'. Would love to hear from anybody from the trip <img src="" alt="Smiler" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::)-->

    Hi. I had Alain as courier in Sept/Oct 85. He was great. Remains one of the best holidays of mylife. EE563 I think it was.
