B, boys & I just spent the weekend camping with my bro-in-law and it was gorgeous weather. We sat out reminising about when we travelled Europe and it reminded me of an amazing coincidence that we experienced that i thought may be a good thread starter?
During the months of July & August 2004, we moved around Italy. Pisa - Rome - Napoli - Florence - Venice. For six weeks we didn't see a single GB car or speak to any english people. When we arrived in Florence we drove on to our campsite and we were directed to a large pitch for the van. As we drove past one couple we noticed they had a GB on the back of their car and so we made a mental note to plod up to see them once we were set up at the pitch. Few hours later we walked up and they were stood outside their tent. We nodded and said hello and once they saw we were english we stopped to chat. They too said that they were yet to see any other GB's during their 3 week stay in Italy. Whilst we were chatting away, i noticed on the registration plate for their car underneath all the letters and numbers it said BK Rollinson LE15. I quickly asked 'whereabouts are you from' and they said " You won't have heard of it, its the smallest county in England. We're from Oakham in Rutland" We couldn't believe that not only were they the only British for us to see in 2 months in Italy, but they were from the same town as us. We were all so shocked and quickly found out that they knew our parents very well and we knew their kids from school.
Now is that a coincidence?????
Anyone had any others?
