    Thats it the ferries booked, we're set to go. :BigGrin:

    Leaving from Portsmouth to Caen mid August
    Returning from Santander to Plymouth early October.

    Wish we were going now I've had enough of decorating and Jan keeps finding more little jobs for me to do.:cry:

    Can't wait really looking forward to going, I love that feeling of heading off into the unknown. :thumb:

    Eight weeks away in the sun. Spare a thought for the rest of us 2 weeks holiday at best. I'm 47 next week so only 18 years till retirement and I can enjoy these long trips.
    Hope you all have a great time.

    Andyman, you are only 47 now. Are you sure the British government (any party) is going to let you retire at 65 in 18 years time.
    You'll be lucky if the age hasn't gone up to 70 or even more for retiring.:Rofl1:

    The way this country is going, if we dont starve due to increased food prices, we;ll freeze as we wont be able to afford to heat the house.
    Maybe it's time to become a Itinerant

    Oh, how I envy you alanval!

    Since I took early retirement I seem to be busier than ever these days.
    (although I do get away for short breaks most weeks)

    Hi Ror

    There are 3 vans (Geo and myself, Suzy and Bryan and Mark and Linda) that have already booked their ferries, the same one leaving Plymouth on 24 August to Santander, and we all booked nice accommodation as well. That's the nice side, the bad part is that Geo and myself are booked in at the doctors on 7 July to have our injections. It's not the needle that bothers me, its the possible side affects to them that does. Oh well, needs must:Doh:

    Hi Pam
    We've got a cabin coming back as we're on the overnight ferry.

    What injections are you having?
    I think Jan & I are ok as we had loads last November when we went to Asia.
    Hope so I hate the needle

    Definitely having:
    Hepatitis A - recommended for all travelers
    Typhoid - again recommended for all travelers given in the form on four capsules taken on alternate days until completed.

    Then it goes on to say that you need:
    Hepatitis B if you are likely to have intimate contact with local residents
    Rabies for travelers who may have direct contact with animals and may not have access to medical care
    Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR for all travelers born after 1956
    Tetanus-diptheria - which is recommended every 10 years.

    I am ready for another tetanus jab anyway so I will have that and I think Geo is ready for one as well.

    We had all those for Egypt and topped up for Asia last year.
    The only one we have'nt had is a Rabies jab.

    Don't worry
    I've got a plan to keep the wild animals at bay.
    I'm gonna put some of Jans cakes outside the RV at night.
    That'll keep em away.:Rofl1:

    Hi had a Typhoid and Tetnus/Diphtheria/Polio combined last week HepA and B this week, so far no side effects at all :BigGrin: the Hep B is a course of three, the next in a month and the final at xmas.

    Bit of pain in the arms but ok, susan says it feels like someones punched her in the arms.

    Thanks a lot Pam
    I just read that and laughed out loud.
    She's sat next to me on the sofa knitting.

    Anyone know how to remove a knitting needle from your left ear:cry:

    Olley, Geo has just asked how much the injections cost - he's heard they're about £70-90 each:Eek!:

    Gosh I hope not.

    Hep B - why did you have that one - you're not intending to get intimate with any locals are you???:Rofl1:
