We surrender. ….

Waiting to get on the ferry back to Dublin. …

Elapsed Travel Time: 00:36:26
Km Driven: 1659.4
Petrol Used: 6 tanks and we’ve half a tank left
Show Tunes Sung: 0 – but there have been several plaintive choruses of “why does it always rain on me”
Fights: 0 amazingly

When we get back and I’ve had some sleep, I’ll organise all these posts better and put up the longer sections.

Overall, given the time, distance and various dramas, I think we’ve done pretty well!

Stuff that broke!

And….. the TV aerial has blown off somewhere along the way. 

The car aerial broke off pretty early on the Glasgow – Donington leg (possibly due to the addition of a foam pirate flag).

So…. the list of stuff to repair is currently:
Waste water connection mounting.
Bed slats.
New TV aerial.
Possibly water pump.
Car radio aerial.
Possibly Audi air suspension compressor.

Aaaand….we’re in Wales!

5th country in 13 days!

Elapsed Travel Time: 00:33:45
Km Driven: 1493
Petrol Used: we just got another tank.  We got vouchers for free pizza.
Show Tunes Sung: 0
Fights: 0 with each other – however, beamer guy very nearly left the petrol station with his goolies stapled to his stupid fake twin exhaust!

Welcome to Wales – beware of badgers apparently. ..
