    There is always somewhere

    may not be top notch
    may not be cheap

    but there is always somewhere

    We could do a mucky dee in Blighty and then a hearty breakfast the following morning as a very last resort

    or we could do as the unfortunate people in the plane crash in the Andes - look for the weakest member of the group and eat him - unless of course that is me in which case a packet of crisps will do.

    We should find something........ I am trying to find the telephone number of the restaurant, pizza place, that I have used before. If I can I will try to book us a table at 21:30.

    If not, we will have to starve....

    I think we will be alright.

    The alternative will be to arrive at St Omer, sling the bikes onto the main square, dive into a pizza place in our bike gear, sit down, scoff the grub and then check-in. That will work, too.

    All part of the fun.
    You adventure biker you

    what if you bumped into someone you knew on the train or at St Omer who happens to be going to Viaden as well

    Maybe staying at the same hotels

    Riding the same route

    You will be fine, the Square is awash with restaurants, there are more options in the side streets and I believe the hotel caters for guests until at least 10 pm.

    Enjoy your trip.

    Looks like my clients will both be going back home just after lunch.

    With luck I will be able to make a reasonably early departure. See you all at the passenger centre thing in good time for the train. If we are by chance all their earlier and all together let's go.

    Richard

    PS Looks like it's chilly over night in Vianden, too.
