And we're off!

I am currently sitting on a bed, in a small hotel in Portsmouth. In a couple of hours when we have finished all the complimentary tea and coffee, we'll be heading off to board the ferry which is going to slowly take us to Spain.

I am still reeling with the amount of space available in the boot of my car (although the downside is, no roof down action until we have arrived at the villa and unloaded), so I have literally brought everything but the kitchen sink.

It's freezing cold, so I can't see we'll be doing much more than a brisk stroll around the deck just because we can, but I'm hoping to document the trip with a few well chosen photos, and of course some clips from the in car camera of bits of driving around Spain over the next couple of weeks, to bore you all rigid.

Woolly, Dave54, hasontour and 6 others like this.

Have just given in and paid for 3 hours of wifi on the boat. This is looking over where we're sitting, back end of the boat I believe.
