Marilyn and David's Wedding Anniversaries.
Ninth, in September 2011, on the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club trip to Austria in the 1976 Daimler Double Six Avon-Stevens Convertible.
Ten Jaguars and two Daimlers set off from the UK for an Austrian adventure at the end of August 2011. Five of the cars were V12s. The organisers were Simon and Ann Cronin, with support from Travel Destinations. Cars ranged from a 1948 XK120 to a new XJ saloon and set off from all corners of the UK. Most used the Channel Tunnel 08.50 service on 31st August, with several using the Hull to Zeebrugge crossing. The main "tunnel" group met up outside the terminal building before boarding the shuttle for France. We caught occasional glimpses of some of the cars during the day, but only met up with everyone at the first hotel in Marche-en-Famenne, Southern Belgium. One factor very obvious from the start was that this trip was very much more "organised" than our previous JEC holidays, with a much more detailed daily itinerary from Travel Destinations. The "door to door" mileage for us over the entire trip was an impressive 2,546.
