Ferry booked. And yes, I'm determined it's not falling off the font page.

 

Are we hotelling on Thursday night?  If so, shall I book somewhere close by, as per?

Ramada booked.  Got a deal through the business, so we might as well treat ourselves.

Just out of interest, how much have you managed to get a room for at the Ramada? I just checked, it's a bit rich for me.

£75. 

 

There are cheaper options, but we are old gits and we need our comfort*.  We like to keep the car close too!

 

 

* This said, on the Sweden trip we did spend the first night in the car between Hamburg and Lubeck...

No, I thought about it and even looked at my diary to see if I could hang around in France a bit longer as it is only a 5 day trip I am on.

Sorry guys, I'm gonna declare myself out. Partly on cost grounds, but mainly on logistics.

 

I still like the idea of an AS France trip in the future though.

There are hotels but even better there is Mother.Frogchods complete with excessive food, wine and swimming pool..
No room here until renovation is complete. Plenty of hay in the barn though, oh and there's a very comfy sofa in my workshop.
Seriously though, if needed I could lob up a single bed in the atic.
Just need to avoid the wrath of Mrs.Frogchod.
