ADVENTURE BEFORE DEMENTIA

This is the post excerpt.

The Bury’s are planning their travels again, but no cruise ship this time! We are going on the road for 28 days in our newly converted mini bus that John has turned into a motor home. The hope is that we will travel from the north east of Scotland to New Haven in the south of England and get the ferry across to France. This blog will follow our travels and see where we end up.

 

Impromptu night away

Sun ☀️ here in North east Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 so a night away in our MoHo’s with our friends.

Only an hour away to Culloden near Inverness to a nice quiet sight. We had a few hours sitting out in the sun befor having a nice meal in the Culloden Inn. A few gins to finish off a lovely night away.

Sun 🌞 still here this morning although it’s not exactly shorts and tee shirt weather it’s still nice.

Sunny Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

And home

3800 miles through Scotland, England, Holland, Germany, Lichtenstein, Bavaria (they say they are not Germany lol), Austria, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Luxembourg and Belgium.

Round mountains, through the alps in tunnels and over them. Castles, forts, Mozart, Ariel cars and lakes. Snorkelling in the Adriatic Sea, eating different food, drinking gin and locals drinks.

Laughing, looking in awe, sitting in the sun and listening to thunder. Being woken by a bold duck knocking on the door for his breakfast and visits from swans. Boats so close they would wave to us. Rubbish roads and roadworks.

A few more ticks on the bucket list and meeting new people. New MoHo had lots of beautiful views.

Chitty chitty fairytale castle and Belgium chocolate.

And we loved every minute but for the record Brugge was our favourite.

Thanks for joining us we enjoyed your comments. Next years plans have already begun.

Blighty

Arrived late last night as the ferry was delayed due to winds. The lovely couple at Brookcroft campsite a few miles from the port were there with torches 🔦 to get us settled into the site and open the gate for us. That’s service! And with EHU, toilet and shower ÂŁ15 a night.

After a good nights sleep we are now in Bedfordshire where we used to live to visit our friend Charlotte.

The site at the Cross Keys pub Pulloxhill is bogged down but they have let us stay tucked away at the back of the pub with hook up.

Possibly Glasgow tomorrow to visit Our son and granddaughter. Putting off going home until the last minute.

4 days until back at work

Last night!

Holland 🇳🇱 again and in a site minutes from the port. Nice site and we are the only ones here.

A gaggle of ducks 🦆 have kept us company today, I love ducks 🦆 but had to draw the line on the one who wanted to come into the Moho.

Rain ☔️ started as it got dark and the temperature has definitely dropped 😢

Ferry ⛴ at 14.15 tomorrow.

Last night in The continent.

Prime and rain

For the first time in a month we have had rain ☔️ during the day. So it was feet up and binging on Carnival Row on Prime Eating Belgium chocolate. Yes both Prime and Netflix work in Europe.

So not a lot to report even Spike the vampire 🧛‍♀️ gnome is watching the iPad.

Moving onto Holland 🇳🇱 tomorrow the be near the port for our exit on Thursday. It’s been an exciting and quick month.

2 days to go. Zero miles today.
