Yet another crazy couple of days.
Thursday was leaving London with packing the van up (and emptying that toilet) and finally finishing the last of the house sprucing. I also had to pilot the van onto our street which wasn’t anywhere as bad as I thought.
After that we finally did the final run across the the south circular to the M20 and headed off to Keith and Linda’s for our last night in a proper bed for a few months. Which was lovely 🙂
Friday was actually leaving the UK, the big day we’d been building up to for months. We got up and packed the final washing and stuff into the van. Including a lovely new fold up table…thanks K&L! Then we were off Dover bound.
Predictably the kids loved the ferry and all the driving on and off and in and out. There were some sights but all was good. We got off the other side and I remembered to “DRIVE ON THE RIGHT”…so all good!
Now we’re about to turn in on a lovely campsite and our first continental stop at Château du Gandspette. Everything you’d want in a french campsite, swimming pools, playground, table tennis, and a cafe serving frites!
So on our rather long winded “Grand Depart” we’ve finally departed….eep!
