Ted heads out to Scotland mid February to move the majority of our 'things' to the UK. (moving companies much too expensive for the amount of stuff we have) The last role of our monster vehicle. He's looking forward to the 1200 km solo drive! Music, sunflower seeds, and maps in the front seat and he's off.
Next stage of travel (without the end in Greece as originally planned to visit friends- unfortunate but plans change...) will be done without our trusty Dell Inspiron companion and thus no more travelpod updates for the next while - one less thing to carry as we become the backpackin' train jumpin' gypsy family - is it appropriate that we will be going to Romania??! [English teachers out there - do you not just love these long run on sentences??] We will start with a hop, skip, and a jump from Montpellier to Nice (carnival time) and to Vienna. Then on to Prague for a few days (to celebrate Isla's 2nd birthday - how will she top this? .......I'm sure she will). Budapest, Hungary then calls, followed by 'Dracula' and the castles in Transylvania and perhaps a bit of skiing in the Carpathian Mountains, Romania. Next some exploring behind the still existing communist remnants of Bulgaria, the traditional transport-by-horse-and-trailer rural areas, and perhaps a visit to the Black Sea. Will likely end with an overnight 'sleeping' train between Bucharest and Budapest again where we will experience the 'no frills' airline travel to Glasgow. Ahhh some haggis and whisky in April. Talk to you then. Enjoy the beginnings of springtime.
