Where I stayed
The Princess and Ghandals were having a heart to heart about their 'relationship' and we had to wait whilst she decided if she was fit enough to join us for the tour - then she went AWOL so we left without her, already forty minutes late.
Our driver, Thierry, was a drug f**ked surfer wannabe who had obviously had a heavy night and was miserable from the outset - Jo did little to improve his mood firstly by sulking outside the minivan door waiting for 'assistance' with her bags, and secondly throwing a hissy fit and demanding a U-turn when she discovered she'd left her phone in reception at the last hostel.
We amused ourselves with his OCD and twitching and decided we would ignore him and make our own fun in the wine region
After four vineyards and a hasty indigestion inducing lunch we were all merrily 'on our way' by the time we fell through the door at the 'Stumble Inn' where we continued the day with shots and a selection of alcoholic beverages.
As if we hadn't had enough we headed into town to look for a club and the best thing we could find was an Irish bar! After some more lubrication we decided to take a 'shortcut' back to the hostel and got hopelessly lost...rescued only by Arrid? what Assid, who? Afyd..oh David!!! His name was David, a bemused passing motorist, who was flagged down by four very intoxicated and tired ladies.
Back at the hostel Jane finally stopped dry humping the cushions and Alun had exhausted himself from all the dancing, so we hit the sack and fell asleep fully clothed in our bunks beds. Hiccup...nighty night x
