A fortnight to go

Till we go over

02:30 ferry to Calais

From Dover.

Then down into France

Wrong side of the road,

The motor home weighed down

With all of our load.

Then on into Spain

And over the plain.

I'll do ow't this winter

To get out of the rain,

The horrible snow and the

Wind and the fog,

It's all arranged now

And even the dog

Has a passport to travel

And had rabies jab,

Some good Euro maps

We now need to grab.

Some cream and sun hats

And Immodium for belly,

But one thing we won't need

And that is the Welles

Then when we come home

Safe and sound GOD willing

5 months will have gone by

And we'll have been chillin.

Your best wishes we take with us,

and the wish for good health,

to this forum I write on

with occasional stealth

and wit as intended and tongue fixed in cheek,

I'll try to keep you updated at least once a week.

we drive down to southern France every September and then take the Santander ferry and drive to Gibraltar every March for a month at a time wonderful way to shorten the winter. what pure joy it is to drive on continental motorways and go hundreds of miles and never see a cone or road works, although we do have a caravan we are lucky to have friends with apartments in cap d adge and in Estepona so all we have to take is our suitcases and ourselves


How wonderful, hope you have a great time, lots of sun and good air quality, will look forward to your posts all your adventures ect, safe journey god speed. Joan x
