Possibly a mistake in copying the lat/long?

I don't know what toxoplasmosis is but I sure as hell don't like the sound of it.

Hopefully there's hoses en-route, I'll take some cleaning stuff with me I think

Straight up, Ian was in Avranches ICU for some time; he got infected after river water got into an open wound. The thing is, these coypu are dead cute and will swim up to your boat as you're going along. You're advised not to cuddle or kiss them but instead to hit them over the head with an oar until they stop moving.

I'm sure the pair of liquidisers hung off the back of Matt's boat will make a nice soup out of them

I think I can remember to take something that deals with them more efficiently.

Without doubt. I will correct it when I add the latest points.

Baby wipes are great for keeping the handies clean of nasty toxywhatsists.

Coming from a well known rat lover, that's a touch harsh.

Toxoplasmosis is most commonly encountered in domestic cats. Having as I do, a comfortable surplus of said felines, I can reassure you that it's not quite Ebola we're dealing with here. However, Laydees who are planning to get knocked up are advised to stay clear, as there are potentially serious complications. Erin take note .

Paris is meant to be romantic.

Martini will probably get all doe-eyed when he sees the Eifell Tower, so long as no one tells him it is not a lighthouse.
