    20 minutes to go (waiting for No.1 son to get home) before we leave on our 23 day trip to Europe, Nothing planned just going to take it as we move along. Finally hope to get to Lido de Jeselo and the Venice area.

    All packed, including the Kitchen Sink.

    Will try and update but can't promise anything as SHMBO says I'm not allowed to take Laptop!!!!!!:ROFLMAO:

    have a great time, we did the same left uk 25th June for just over 2 weeks, just wandered around.
    landed in dunkerque, drove to luxembourg to a site recommend that had lakes (too small to use canoe) nice site though with free wifi, then into france, then germany by the rhine for 3 nights, back through luxembourg, went to an aire at mareuil sur ay by canal, used canoe, next day bike to epernay as tour de france was on, ended up at le touqet on aire before heading back to dunkerque and back to wet old uk 12th july. 1,500 miles later .......

    We have finally made it to Lido de Jeselo after spending 2 nights in St. Florentine, France and 3 nights Le Coin Tranquil. Couldn't get in at Camping Butterfly on Lake Garda so made our way direct to Lido de Jeselo and staying at Lido Union until Thursday when we are going to try Lake Garda again. Weather really nice, 32oC on average each day. Did Venice allday yesterday, very pretty city. SWMBO took me to a Market this morning spent 3 hours looking at dresses etc SHE BOUGHT ONE, makes a change as they are usually all wrong!!!!!.

    Using the I phone? She went shopping again this afternoon, bought 2 ( twooooo) pairs of shoes AND 2 (twooooo) handbags, what did I buy? A new catch for one of the cupboards. Just cooked tea on the bbq, it's 22C and having a cup of tea before washing up, then some more el vino blanco. It really is a hard life only draw back is video camera has packed in so lost a lot of Venice piccys yesterday.
