Monday, April 9, 2012

Met the truck at Hammersmith, got all loaded up, so now we
can start,

Haven’t really chatted with anyone yet, got lots of time to
put names to faces

Our driver is Adam, Polly is our guide

Polly the guide and Adam have done this trip several times,
so it’s going to nothing new for them

So it’s sit back and wait till we get somewhere now

Saint Lievein, Hougtom, Belgium

Our first night was in a village, way off the beaten track

Adam pulled over at this farm, just because the place had a
green field (forgetting the horses knocking about, anyway this was to be our
place to kip for the night, the cook group had been sorted, so everyone else
got tents/sleeping bags  sorted

It was a quick meal, spaghetti  and then people pretty much wandered about, looking  around, the owner of this place bred horses(to me they looked a pretty motley bunch)

He even broke out a couple of bottles off bourbon (probablyleft over from Christmas, but it was a nice offer, the hens pretty much laideggs everywhere, the cock isn’t as vocal as mine though

I went to bed bout 11ish, what a long night, I was freezing,woke up pretty much every hour, even the little road was pretty busy all night with traffic, anyway it was aquick breakfast of porridge and toast and then we are on our way, off toCologne (aint been there for 30 odd years)

Well we seemed to have by passed Cologne, we are heading forthe Czech republic, it has been pretty boring, a lot of motor way driving andthe usual comfort breaks, these go on as scenery is pretty much what you wouldexpect on any European motorway, trees, towns, villages in the process of looking for a ‘bus no’
I wore my cap for the night, hope it will be warmer than last night, still we are heading to warmer climes


We are now in Prague, but as I said earlier, we never got to see much of Europe, mostly motorway, but it’s a day out in the city tomorrow

For some reason, I cant reply to comments, thanks and I can  only apologiise
