    Morning Folks

    We will be driving to Dover today. We will park on the front and catch the ferry too Calais tomorrow morning.

    We then have three months to meander through France and Spain.

    June has planned the trip with military precision although there will be a few revisions to the plan.Were in no hurry.

    If anybody spots us please say hello.

    Happy Days.

    Jim

    We too are off next Sunday for 2 months maybe more who knows.we are in no hurry to get back.have no house to worry about in blighty so that saves us a bob or two just our camp site fees to pay or wild camp if we see it safe enough.
    Will give you a wave and if you see a voyager with a huge Welsh dragon with the word Cymru in red on the bonnet that will be us.Hope the weather and the cost of fuel will be kind to us both but if it isn't who cares anyway we are still going to do it. You only live once eh?

    Well Trophychap and I are off and onto the tunnel late next Sunday night, to Gravelines for sleep and then on Mon to Adinkerk for himself to stock up on baccy. We were going to Berck s M for a day or 2 for the kite Festival but forecast at the moment is rain, so dunno if we'll bother.

    Will be watching the forecast though as Pete himself pictures us on a Med beach (Agde area) and I'd quite like to go to Annecy ...... :Doh:

    Back on the tunnel a few days into May and I think the Med is a long slog if you haven't got an awful lot of time and the weather isn't - pretty much - guaranteed. We'll prolly land up in Chateauroux LOL, we don't actually plan all that much.

    But whatever - wherever - the Fun stickers are on the van; the kettle is usually on ........ come and say hello cos if you don't we'll be saying it to you - whether you want to or not!

    Quick Update

    Hi Folks
    Just got a bit of free WIFI. We are doing fine and are in Altea, near Benidorm. Alls fine and the weather for the past two days has been great.

    We have had some good and some bad weather on our way down through France and Spain, mostly bad. The bank holiday weekend was rain, rain, rain.

    Were having a ball no-matter what.

    I will post a more comprehensive report when time allows.

    Cheers
    Jim
