It’s official, Gulliver is now in the hands of Mark Knowles, in the south of France!

Apparently he took a little detour by way of French customs but no harm done apparently. Gulliver is intact and ready to set out on a couple of days of … bear business? I’m informed that he’s going to spend some time in La Col sur Loup with Marks’ wife, which will be followed by a bikini/bay watch in or around Cannes.

I’m prefectly sure that Mark and Gulliver will pass nonchalantly for Baywatch types. All being well …

So, bring it on Mark, The Missus –¬†and Gulliver of course.

I have no idea.

He’s definitely somewhere. Just a pity I don’t know his exact … whereabouts. I’m assuming he’s loitering around somewhere in France now, forging his way towards Mark Knowles. That’s the plan, anyway.

Something that was pointed out to me (after I placed his furryness in a bag on a plane) was the fact that I should have included a small, lightweight notebook with him, in order for his Keepers to write a small message or so that they could simply sign it – a bit like the way we used to get passport stamps everytime we crossed borders.

I may ask Mark if I can forward him one, so that he can send it with Gulliver.

Anyway – all being well Gulliver should appear in France tomorrow and finally start his journey proper. I had a look at Villauris – assuming there’s only one Villauris in France – and it certainly looks very beautiful.

I’m looking forwards to finding out more about the area, as that’s the point of Gullivers Travel.

Would you have heard of Villauris but for Gulliver? I know I wouldn’t have. And maybe this way we’ll all learn more about various parts of our world that we may not have without Gullivers Keepers’ being good enough to put up with his silly habits and treacle scoffing.

Bring it on, Villauris. And Mark Knowles of course …
