I have recently completed a three month tour of Europe with my son and my two Amazon parrots, but first, I will tell how it was that I was spending so long in Europe.

Hopefully by then, I will have explained that it is not difficult to take your pet parrots on holiday with you.

I am retired and my son, Adam, is a European modern languages undergraduate, and as part of his studies, he had to spend a year in Europe.

You see, I had missed out on a school trip to the Rhine Valley many years ago, but as I don’t speak more than five words of German, I have never plucked up the courage to go.
