So today is the day.. am just preparing to leave on my way to the ferry then over to France. I will try to maintain the blog/vlog everyday, but if I am riding for long stretches I might be too tired. Sorry
Watch this space for more adventures.
Arrived in Portsmouth about 5pm, so not bad going and no rain… yet.
After carefully packing, unpacking and cutting it down to a minimum, for me that is, I forgot to pack a bracket thing for attaching the gopro to the bike… humph. So decided to try and find somewhere to buy one, but no such luck.
Arrived at the ferry at 7ish and got on quickly, but a wee frenchman couldn’t make up his mind which way round he wanted me to park… round and round.
Got sorted eventually so unpacked my overnight stuff and went to find my cabin. In the cabin I suddenly thought I’d left my passport on the bike, in full view, so hurried back down to the vehicle deck…. no passport eek!!! Looked all over the bike, but nothing. Back to the cabin to check again… nothing. Went to the information desk to report it, but no passport handed in… now I’m panicking. Back down to the bike to check again… still nothing. Back to cabin and pulled everything out… there it is, hiding in the spare glove bag… grr but very relieved… phew!
Just had a small bottle of wine, only 250cl but because I hardly ever drink, am feeling a bit tipsy… hic!
Off to bed now… bonjour St Malo in the morning…. nite nite.
Couldn’t upload the video on the boat last night, the wifi wasn’t up to it…
