    Due to a medical glitch we unfortunately will not be fishing up in Norway this summer. Instead we leave tomorrow in the fiver for Munich to deliver my semi tame professors computer (which I am not allowed to touch), so that will be difficult in itself. He flies out to some conference or other next Sunday in Italy, so I have until Saturday to get there. Then another delivery of a boat and outboard to some ex pat living in the sticks in Portugal who thankfully due to weight issues has not asked for FB pies. From there back to my winter quarters in Benidorm to water my plants before an early September flight home for yet another hospital appointment with the heart man. Home for a few days before flying back to Spain for another month before flying back to the UK for a week for a family wedding before returning to Benidorm for the winter. Bloody hard work being a poor pensioner, but without us there would be a few disappointed people around Europe :).

    I just assumed you were bringing a couple of crates of Fray Bentos Steak and Ale pies (no kidney or chicken) without me asking!

    Maybe your caravan can't carry much.

    Safe travels...

    We arrived in Munich lunchtime Wednesday after driving through pouring rain almost all the way from Dunkirk. First night was spent on a hof just off the autobahn and we are now pitched up here for a few days. http://www.muenchen.de/rathaus/home_en/Department-of-Communal-Services/campingplatz_en
    Its not exactly cheep, but its almost in the city centre but in woodland with a river running through it. A lovely beer garden just a few yards away with typical Bavarian food and lots of nectar. The fiver has caused quite a stir and if it wasnt for the fact we have quite a long way to go as yet, there would be a good chance of it being sold. We were at the local beergarden last night, here. http://www.gasthof-hinterbruehl.de/
    and will be off tonight looking for more oompah music. Roll out the barrel, the sun has got his hat on :D.

    At your age you should go to bed early.

    You need to save your energy for the Boat Delivery Run to Toulouse.

    JJ, of course as almost always you are correct. Having spent the afternoon in the Hofbrauhaus am ready for bed now. Am sure those beer glasses are more than a pint :D.
    For any one that is interested.

    A couple of photos from the Hofbraeuhaus Munich. The oldest in Munich, complete with umpah band and an awful lot of beer.
