Through the group I was met by Steve, an old friend of Clive from CJ Scooters who used to sell spares on the UK National Rallies.
Anyway we got on well, and through Steve's Bulgarian girlfriend Kalina we got to meet council. Mission accomplished. I also got my son Sam a new pen-friend in Kalina's daughter Pinkie.
VT is jaw-droppingly beautiful. No wonder so many Brits have moved there.
