    Tomorrow is the day I have been dreaming of for so long now, I finished work 2 weeks ago and Glynn did his last day at work today so tomorrow we are off, no waiting!! :BigGrin: Herman Junior is loaded ready for the journey, we have been given champagne, wine, brandy and lots of Euros as leaving presents so we will be fine :Rofl1: We will start off by spending a week near Mont St Michel while we get used to the idea of what we are doing and then we will spend a few weeks working our way to the South of France ready for the TDF in July. After that who knows...... wherever the fancy takes us and the sun is shining :Cool: Hope to bump in to plenty of Funsters along the way :thumb: I will try to update the blog as often as I can with our adventures and here's hoping there aren't too many additions to the Learning Curve tab :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Good luck and have a fantastic time, I know you will. Hope to see you on the road sometime next year.

    Hope you keep posting on here as we need help naming our new van. Colin has refused to let me call it 'Dora the Explorer' :Rofl1:

    We are meeting Carol & Peter in the Pyrenees around the middle of June and we want to be in Carcasonne for The Bastille day fireworks on 14th July so it sounds like we are going to be further south than you but keep in touch with where you are as we would love to meet up again :thumb:

    Congratulations, and enjoy your new life! We'll hope to see you sometime when you are meandering through France - you will often meet other Funsters here (especially as we have some who are here more often than not!), and you will get a warm welcome.

    Oh lucky you. No wonder your excited. Reading posts like yours just makes me wish I too could retire and go off exploring places.

    Enjoy your time away, stay safe and have fun, and post plenty photos for all of us back here.:Smile:

    Well done you two. Have a great time. :thumb:

    I've been trying for some years now, to persuade Rita to get rid of the "work shackles", but so far, I have failed miserably. :Wink:

    Follow your dream, but remain safe doing so. :thumb:

    Happy travels,

    Jock.

    Coolbeanz,

    We will be in the same boat as yourselves very soon. I pack it in on 16th May and Lynne will finish on 1st August, we can't wait to join you but will probably do our shakedown trials in the UK first.

    Up to now out little 5.7M camper has been known as TC (the camper) but our near neighbour has christened it the Minibago.................

    Good luck on your trip; live every day to the full, you have earned it.

    The Tinca's
