Well it's goodbye from me ... and goodbye from her!

This is wierd. We are now saying goodbye to all you keen bloggers out there because we may not get the chance to log on before reaching blighty (although we're keeping you guessing our date of actual return!). However, soon we will be saying hello to many of you in real time.

We're in tuscany at the moment browsing the outlet stores. Heading for Germany and then Holland next.

Rain rain go away come back another day!

It's raining its pouring Don Corleone is snoring.... no we're not in Wales yet, we're in Napoli South Italy. It's truely turned autumnal now - freezing cold and terrential rain for the past week... great! Erica has had a wonderful time but at least good food and good vino!

Alas no more pictures the camara is knackered. Back soon ... we feel as though we are heading home now. Wales will be our home for the interim until we sort ourselves out and come through campervan cold turkey.

Lots of love

Super special Santorini

On Santorini island just now - very beautiful but very commercial with lots of tourists. The views of the Caldera are stunning so lots of sunset viewings over the next 2 days. We've left Audrey on Amorgos island - its wierd being back in a 'proper bed' and having space without knocking heads....!

Italy next week then back in Blighty end next month.

More photos to follow.

The sun came out ...

We're still in Greece where the weather is sunny and about 32 degrees. Just spent a week on the beach topping up our tans and spending most of the day either sleeping or reading. In fact our bodies are so unused to being vertical that we feel faint just getting a cup of water. It's a hard life! We had our first encounter with 'Brits Abroad'... a small fishing village was taken over by +50 year olds from Gatwick or Manchester.... lots of lobsters basking in the sun during the day and eating roast lamb with two veg at the local taverna watching the cricket and drinking pints at night. Quote of the 6 months was overheard by Bethan (she calls it taking an interest in people I call it curtain twitching) ... "bought a lovely cotton shirt for 17 Euros that's errr (getting the calculator out) about 25 quid wot a rip off!"

Back to touring more sites with old stones today (as Gray calls them).

We should be back end Octoberish - any house/flat sitters required... we're your people!
