Alan is a brilliant navigator. We have a deal (since he can’t drive) – he navigates and gives me all the directins, including which lane to be in. I don’t care if we get it wrong, as long as he makes the decisions! The sofa fitted into the van, we drove back, got a bit lost in the centre of Zurich, did a few laps of Bellevue and Bahnhofstrasse, but finally found our way home! Unloaded sofa and returned van, all within 2 hours. Our office now has a lovely sofa bed, new cushions and it now doubles as the “guest room”. As a bonus, our mate also donated his plant (no idea what it is :-) I’ve watered and pruned it, so our flat also now has greenery :-)
I was so worried about the whole plan, but I needn’t have been. I’m an advanced driver, and I should learn to trust my skills and believe in Alan’s confidence in me!
