It's not in the same league as the cruises that the guys from NB Chance have been going on lately, there might be just enough time to skull a beer on our upcoming voyage!
We have booked the ferry from Dover to Calais for the 4th May ... mind you, the fare is a bit cheaper than a grand cruise too!
1 x 7.75 metre motorhome, 2 Adults, 2 Dogs and 3 Cats £48.75 !!! How cheap is that?!!
So, that is exciting ... our plans are moving on!
On another matter I thought I would share my latest purchase, which may be of interest to boaters. I bought this u-beaut phone the other day from Aldi ... it is waterproof, shockproof, it has a camera and torch it is bluetooth enabled, but that is about it. What I like about it is that it takes 2 sim cards, so at the moment I have my Aussie sim card as well as my UK sim card in it. When we go to Europe we will buy a European sim and take out the UK one. I have to have a Aussie sim in order to do on-line banking with the Australian banks. The European sim will enable us to make cheap calls in Europe, rather than having a UK one on roaming. Elaine will still have the main UK whizz-bang phone but we will only use that in an emergency.
How much for the 'Aldi Rugged' phone? Just £39.95, another bargain! It comes unlocked but will not work with a 3 sim!!
Here is my Aldi Rugged ...
We cleared a few more things off of the boat today whilst Elaine has been packing stuff into the motorhome. Once we have moved into the van I will take it to a weighbridge to make sure we are not overloaded!!!
05.00 start tomorrow as we are off to Manchester for Elaine's penultimate appointment....nearly there!!
