Closing question:


This Swedish sailing ship was built in exactly the same place as...




... my latest Volvo 850. (Goteborg).

So here's a question for you all:  

Which vehicle would you rather have, sweet fellow bloggers?

(If you can't be honest, at least be practical)

    1. I didn't know that Ford made cars in 1025. Mrs Miniver was a crap fillum, wasn't it? (I am not - for ONE moment) expecting you to agree with me, Jonathan.

  2. I'd love to own a 35ft sailing yacht but that ship looks decidedly like the Flying Dutchman might be on board ( OK I know it's the wrong country but you get my gist). So it's the practical Volvo for me as I actually need one of those. Sigh.

    PS Only 25mins from the Opening Ceremony - hope you're going to watch!

    1. Come on - no compromise, Elehance: Either the full sized vessel, or a modest Volvo. I will accept - at a stretch - a 35 foot stretch-Volvo.

      I will be watching it from behind the sofa... on iPlayer, tomorrow.

  4. When I went to live in Sweden, I travelled on a small ship. My only sadness was that it had no sails.

  5. Could the Volvo be fitted with sails, for those blustery Bath days?

  6. I'd love the ship--does it come with crew? Himself might want to fight me for the Volvo, so i'm going with the safer choice.
