An interesting development yesterday trying to print our boarding passes on line, for this morning. Got as far as number of suitcases and then it said, sorry no further matey you will have to go to the airport and check in there. So, I thought I will just check our passport details because we still sometimes get accused of having duplicate passports when we get to the gate. Started to do this and changed things but again I only got so far before it (the computer) finally said, sorry matey no further you are now locked out for 24 hours! I telephoned and I must admit a very helpful guy, checked the passports and also moved our seats towards to the front of the plane, where Mary feels happier. As you can guess, despite the phone call, I approached the check in at Heathrow with trepidation!
Amazingly it worked! Took three goes (it’s all automated now) for the machine to recognise Mary’s passport but all was well. We printed off our own baggage labels and I mused on where eventually this automation will end. “Here we are, sir, the latest Boeing 737 manual and your pilots hat. Have a good flight.” 😱😱😱
But I digress. We arrived in Gruyeres, only partially Christmas decorated and no snow as on previous occasions. The Rampart Restaurant was hardly what you could call crowded!
But, a splendid Trout and almonds for me and Tagilatelle and Prawns for Mary, which was delicious. One bottle of wine, one sorbet, three coffees and that will be £98 thank you very much. Which is why we very rarely come for two weeks! 😆
Tomorrow, we shall return to Fribourg, where we have not been for ages and then go and meet Laura and Hannah at the railway station in Romont.
So, thank you for reading, sleep well!
As always, comments very welcome. M & M ✈️🇨🇭🍷🍷🍷
