    Last week we 'sold' our van. I mean of course that we took a deposit and the buyer would return to collect it later (today).......

    Well I collected him from the train station, we did all the 'admin' stuff, and after a couple of hours 'handover' I watch him drive away in HIS new van :cry:

    I do hope the new owners of 'Wolfy' have as much fun as we have had these last 3 years :)

    Now, where did I leave that bag of flour? ..........;)

    The sense of bereavement will fade with time. :)

    Should we open a book on how and when you start touring again? Bikes and tents? :LOL:

    Good luck for the future and what ever your new venture is, it was reading your blog that finally convinced me to go to Scandinavia after years of thinking about it and I'm so glad I did.

    Thanks @lorger I didn't realise I had such a positive influence on here, usually I manage (inadvertently) to upset more than I help :eek:

    Norway by the way was still the BEST place for us and we WILL be returning (y)

    All the best with what you decide to play at next ! We are balancing on a knifes edge whether we can keep our MH or will be forced to sell due to property requirements. Hoping the situation might just be resolved soon. So I kinda know how you are feeling... Our mate Ed................. I mean da Judge is in the same position also.

    Anyway all the very best !

    Stay in touch. Just loved your travel diaries and they have been a great source of information on a year trip. Good luck with the boat and hope some day can meet up for a beer when we visit Scotland next year
