    Taxi to station, train Monday morning to Manchester, hotel at Manchester airport Monday night and flight to Germany 6.40am Tuesday morning.
    Overnight ferry booked Amsterdam to Newcastle Thursday arriving back Friday morning, MOT booked for 12noon.
    What can go wrong? Answer, nothing, we've done it before.:D

    Setting back off from Hamburg Wednesday, stop over somewhere on a Stellplatze, then to Amsterdam for 5pm ferry.
    Insurance and breakdown sorted, bedding, quilt, pan, a few more bits and pieces.

    Have we forgot owt?

    Apparently black alloys are the must have for 2018 :D:D:D
    Exciting time picking up your new van, a real adventure. Wishing you many happy miles in it.
