    We are about to 'invade' Europe (France, Belgium, Holland & Germany), do you think they are ready?

    Think not of Europe think of the effect on your homeland.

    Are they short of good dentists? I suspect the truth is that Johnny Foriegner in the Low Countries are usually too pi$$ed on strong lager to care about anything, and , they cant play rugby,its their genetic make up and the other make up..

    Nver been to Eric Land, is there a protocol? Raised Arm, small moustache, drive a VW and leather underpants..

    Ah, the garden of England, land of the 23'9 sometimes they ever speak English, well with a Polish accent.
    I am going there to reclaim it, there is a strong Republican movement in Merthyr who are intent taking over most of Europe, not keen on Greece of Portugal, I dont like poor people and scroungers...

    Right,
    The time has arrived.
    a) Van wrapped in camouflage, so that will make our travels through Belgium easier.
    b) To get through France, I have peeled some garlic, liquidised them and poured the juice into the diesel tank, that should enables to get through France in Stealth mode.
    c) One of the biggest issue we had was getting lard into Europe, so I ended up with a cunning plan, I have repacked it and called it ‘Organic and perfume free’ face cream. As all Brits know you cant do proper chips with that Olive Oil, the salt and vinegar simply will not stick.
    d) I have managed to remember a few foreign phrases that will help us…
    1. Ave vooos a cuppa
    2. Nay lad kant standee the pongee
    3. Deux largers pal.
    4. Ey is par king year.

    I have managed to accumulate a few hand signals so that will help.

    Also, I have removed the large steering wheel of the Rapido and replaced it with a monkey wrench, the passenger/navigator can hold onto the steering wheel to give the impression that we are truly European and therefore we can easily fool Johnny Foreigner..

    Germany is going to be the problem, all I know is that if I change all the letter W with the letter V then my German will be top notch. Mind you going for a wee will end up going for a vee. Hang on, if I ask for Wheat, I may end up getting that stuff ladies puts on their legs to remove hair..

    Any other suggestions?

    Don't worry. We have been here in France 10 days and now sat south of Carpentras. Aint seen another funster and only 1 Brit! Seems to us that the whole of the Dutch nation is here. Moved onto a Camping Cheque site today to be told only 1 night as fully booked! Back to Aires then.
    Cheers
    Bernie
