    Well, the day has finally dawned ( been up since 3:15!) and I'm setting off to who knows where after getting the ferry from Plymouth to Roscoff this afternoon. All I know for sure is that I will be heading south. Never taken a motorhome or driven abroad alone before so I'm excited but also a little apprehensive ( hopefully in the right balance!) - I'll be absolutely fine once I lock my front door :D

    I'm hoping to bump into some fellow funsters on my travels ( I'll be sure to wave and say hello), and have just finished 'blue-petering' my downloadable funster disc.

    Happy travels all

    Well done Bridget, and happy travels.

    I'm sure you will meet lots of interesting people, and plenty of funsters as you near warmer climes.

    Happy travels. I'm awake not because of excitement of my travels today but of the rain that's been hammering on the roof most the night☔️ I would say can you take it away with you but as we'll be heading south in the next few weeks you can leave it here.

    Enjoy

    Good luck, were just going to Cornwall this weekend, might see you going in the opposite direction as we cross the bridge! We're the grumpies without a funster badge - which reminds me I must get one. :)

    There is an aire by the sea just outside Roscoff, quite popular with Brits but otherwise fine!

    Good luck in your travels. I'm sure all the funsters over in France and Spain will be looking out for you. Have a fantastic time. Don't be afraid to have the odd night in a hotel as a treat, you only live once. (y) :D
