One Week To Go....

It has been a while since our last blog as since April we have had to be doing some rather boring and uninteresting stuff- Em had exams, Steve had work! But now it is ONE WEEK to go! This has come round very quickly and we are kind of ready... almost. Steve had his last day of work on Friday and was given a two person inflatable kayak as a leaving present so we shall keep you updated on how we get on! Very excited to try it out though!  

                                                                 Bert in Bude

Over the May bank holiday weekend we tried out Bert for the first time which was really fun, we travelled to Bude in Cornwall which was gorgeous! Will definitely be going there again as it was beautiful and the waves were brilliant! The weekend did highlight a few things that we didn't have but wished we did! Mainly silly things like drawers instead of the rail in the wardrobe, wash bag, a bead curtain (to stop the flies coming in Bert), and suntan lotion.... and then after-sun.
This week we are just sorting out all our clothes, saying our good-byes, getting our euros and daydreaming about not being in cold, wet England for a while!!
But after a few shopping trips and lots of lovely gifts from our friends and family we are pretty much done! The weird thing is that we don't need to pack a suitcase... just Bert! So all of our stuff that we want to take are in boxes in our parents' houses for the time being, and all we need to do now is pack Bert up, get our Euros and do a food shop on Monday as we leave early Tuesday morning!

Excited is not the word!! It has been a long time coming and now its almost here, we can barely believe it. I am sure we will forget something essential though.... Suggestions? Comments?

Happy Camping!
