The month our lives changed beyond all recognition. On the 1st may we left our home in Nottingham and drove to jersey via Weymouth. We spent the next 2 weeks getting ready for the off. We completed the work on the landy, packed our kit and had lots of lovely dinners courtesy of David’s mum. We left for France on 16th – the start of our European adventure. We had a 2 week whistle stop tour visiting Mont Saint-Michel, the Somme in France, Berlin and Dresden in Germany, Luxembourg, Poland, the Baltic’s and Finland. On the way we danced in a swimming pool, got disgracefully drunk in Riga and felt the horrors of Auschwitz. We had our first experience of Wild Camping and over landing in a Land Rover.
