Animalcouriers met dogs and cats from Athens and their owners, accompanied by volunteer Susanne, at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. Meanwhile our colleagues from Geodis Freight  met with volunteers Aimilia and Alexandra who accompanied dogs and their owners to Brussels airport. Annelies and her team from Geodis took the pets to their own premises, and watered and walked them while they waited for us to collect them.

We’re now at Calais, checked in and sitting on the dockside. The only sound we can hear from the back is snoring, but we’re not sure who it is!

The rather splendid apple puff we enjoyed at a French Logis — is it a dessert or a work of art?
