Feb 4, 2019 | Episodes, Road Trips

Guest Karen Davis, Dec 24, 2018:

“Hi Jemmy and Glen, we listened to our bit on your podcast and loved it! We laughed, especially as it took a while before Peter spoke 😁 and have shared it with friends and family. Now we are home in cold, but dry (for once) England and looking forward to Christmas Day tomorrow. Just wanted to say thanks for adding something special to our holiday in South Florida and to wish you and your families happy holidays and a successful 2019. Who knows maybe we will bump in to you both again on our next trip! Lots of love, Karen and Peter Davis (Bonnet House car park!) xx”
