David bought an old blue mini, NVV 376, and I managed to park it outside the Proctor's Office!!: undergraduates were not allowed cars in Oxford!! . We got up early on May Day and drove to Stonehenge to see the sun rise- not a soul!

In the summer vacation we drove down to Greece, camping, for 6 weeks. The car broke down coming down the Gross Glockner, but was eventually repaired: whilst waiting for it we watched the England v.Germany football final in a local bar- surrounded by supporters for Germany!! .
