3 years later

2 weeks and 4 days until we are at long last heading to Europe again. Last night we went to Huntly castle campsite to check everything was ready for our trip. Nice campsite but, 2 hours after we arrived their grass cutter sent 2 large stones at our drivers side window 😭. A trip into Aberdeen and we are all sorted. Now to make my lists and pack the Moho ready for our Europe Adventure.

Stonehaven

3 nights away in the MoHo to this MMC site. We used our own onboard facilities do can’t comment on their shower/toilet blocks. We bought an eco shower 🚿 head which works great and would recommend. Pressure great and doesn’t use excessive amount of water.

Stonehaven has a few takeaways including a chip shop very near the site. We didn’t use it due to John being Celiac and not worth the risk of contamination. However lots from the site used it and they used social distancing well with a member of staff directing people.

A poor duck 🦆 got trapped in the solar panels on the toilet block but the RSPB and fire brigade came to its rescued.

We went for a lovely walk down to the harbour and into the town, it’s sad to see so many shops still closed.

Ayr on Saturday for a few days and a visit to eldest son and youngest granddaughter. It will be nice to get and give a hug 🤗 we know they are well, but seeing is better.

Lockdown over (at least for now)

Decided to try out a #Duvalay mattress topper for a night before heading off next Saturday for a few days.

So we pack a few things and with the help of Campercontact app we headed to Cullen on the north east coast of Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿.

Duvalay was a success nice, soft and a comfortable night was had.

Sneaky few days away

It’s been a cold 🥶 long winter and we are stir crazy 😜. So enough already! MoHo packed and off we went for 3 days in Dunbar just below Edinburgh.

Campsite is Thurston Manor Innerwick, Dunbar, Lothian, Scotland, EH42 1SA. We picked a fully serviced pitch on hard standing (they are never flat).

Great view of the sea 🌊 in the distance. The site has an indoor 🏊‍♀️ which was a fine size for this time of the year but expect it would be mobbed when schools are on holiday. There are a couple of bars, an arcade and a restaurant. Sorry we didn’t try the meals so can’t review. The toilet and shower 🚿 block are tired and cold, but we had the better pitch so had access to a far warmer and rather good shower 🧼 block. One shower had a double shower!!

Would we go back? Yes think we might (when schools in).

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 £15 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
