Dad texting!

Got a text from Dad earlier and this is what it said ... weth walk gt cabel car up mt. Then did via ferarta ludadx

My Dad has his own texting language which only a few can understand !  The texts roughly translates to ...

Hi,  Good weather. Been walking. Got a cable car up the mountain. Then did Via ferrata. Love Dad x

Sometimes I have to read them a few times and then read them out loud. At first I thought he was talking about cable TV as I'd asked him if there was anywhere to watch the football!

Oh and for those that don't know what a Via ferrata is take a look here.  Not what I would call an enjoyable walk !

A Walking Holiday ...

Dad has left the bike at home (well the bike repair shop) and headed off on walking holiday. He kept telling me he was going to Bolivia but as I'd booked him a flight to Munich I knew something was a miss!  Turns out he was heading for Barvaria . Just had a text from him to say he was staying at a place called Oberammergau. I thought it was going to take me some time to find as my Dad's spelling isn't the best, plus he has his own "text speak". Turns out it there is a place called Oberammergau !

I think even managed to find out where they are staying -  here.The plan is to do day walks from the hotel so no heavy back packs to carry on this trip!

I've text Dad and asked if he's found somewhere yet to watch the footie but I wouldn't really want to be an England supporter watching the footie in Germany!

Will update as and when I hear from him.
