Hence a cheeky download of ‘MapMyTracks’ on my GPS enabled smartphone.

On Friday I went to the nurse to get my travel injections. As I was only going to Europe I didn’t expect there’d be too much of a kerfuffle about getting fit for travel, but after a 50 minute meeting at my local surgery, I was enlightened.
