    my everyday language is fribourger “sensler düütsch”, so you probably wouldnae understand much. :wink:
    and yes, OH is local.

    you say you’ll be over this way from the 20th, i expect to be doing a wee excursion the last october week, direction med but i might well be passing your way since i don’t go autoroute.

    still can’t wrok our whether the tour will pass past our house or not? Or will it go towards Les Hopitaux and Vallorbe? Or turn by Les Fourgs and the Col des Etroits at St Croix?

    We missed the autumn show in the Jura! The leaves were still green when we left in September and were gone by the time we returned late October – can;t wait for next year. Hopefully we WILL be there by then!

    Godule, sincere condolences, so sorry I missed your posting until now.

    Sorry I don’t know romainmotiers, but I hope all went well with the funeral and you are coping well.

    thanks naps. He was ‘only’ my cousin, but I really liked him and his family. So sad that his wife has just been diagnosed with cancer. B……….r! It is just not fair.

    Romainmotiers is a small medieval village not far from you – it has the most wonderful Norman (romanesque) abbey – so do go and visit one day, it’s a lovely place.

    If all goes well (!?!) we might be making our move to the Jura early in the New Year- wish us luck. Maybe you’ll come and see us in the mountains one day. by for now Odile

    What have you visited in ‘my’ part of Switzerland? Tell us where you’ve been and your opinion, advice, etc. Hopefully I + English OH will soon be there and will re-discover my roots… so good ideas welcome.
