    We're off tomorrow.

    El Brato is being delivered to school tomorrow morning and is off to a different continent for a month.

    We're making the most of it and are heading off literally minutes after we get rid of him.

    We'll be getting the boring UK bit of the trip out of the way and staying at Canterbury. The tunnel is booked for Saturday morning and we'll heading for Chamonix as a starting point.

    I'll keep posting as we go. There will be food pictures (y)

    The tunnel this morning was as busy as I've ever seen it, a combination of school holidays and extra security though. It took us 45 minutes from leaving the motorway to checking in and they were quoting all sorts of delays. In the end though we were only about 10 minutes late leaving.

    We're parked up at Arrigny - Port de Chantecoq aire for the night which is huge and packed. The sun is shining and it's about 28 degrees.

    Dinner tonight is consisting of things I found in the freezer before we left so I'm not posting pictures of that!

    Carrying on to Chamonix tomorrow so will post again then.

    Have a good trip Nick(y)

    If you see a fat bloke at Garda in a group of 7 it might be me.

    Just approach and say " Hi Chris , you fat bastard"

    Most of my friends address me in this way , these days.​

    After the beer last night we took the dogs back to the van and went in search of food.

    This is not a difficult task here. (y)

    Duck breast with Blueberries cooked properly i.e. so rare it was still quacking (y) image.jpeg


    Chicken in a morel and wine sauce with potato gratin. image.jpeg


    Been for a wander today, had a few more beers but it's hotter than yesterday so retired to the van for a siesta. We're just contemplating getting ready and heading out again.

    Pictures from today are on my real camera and like a twat I've not brought a card reader with me. :doh: Will have to buy one at some point.

    Moved on today and after a pig of a journey starting with an hour from Chamonix to the tunnel toll booths we finally made it to Peschiera del Garda and are firmly ensconced on a great pitch at Camping Cappucini. Front row nearest the lake, about 50 yards from the water and slightly less from the bar.

    The dogs have been for a swim and I've had a couple of Spritz Aperols (y)
