Apr 13, 2005 06:00 PM Rain...sun...rain...sun...

Well...that's how the weather looks like here in Ireland. We have had showers from about 11 o'clock till the evening. This meant pulling over every time the rain started. It's like driving a topless car...
Anyway, we did do a lot of work today, so it wasn't so bad after all, but this will become a hard trip if the weather stays the same.

Apr 12, 2005 06:00 PM Switching cars

Next day, after a nice English breakfast we hit the road again and drove towards Blarney, just outside of Cork. We found the other team in no time and met up. Nice people. We talked some, changed cars and they left, while we "unpacked". We also got to the store and bought some food to last for the next couple of days.
There was a souvenir shop close by and we also went there to buy ourselfs a lighter (because we didn't had one in the camper and we forgot to buy one at the store).
The rest of the day we didn't do anything anymore. The idea was to get up early in the morning, so we could start working early. Certainly because sunrise was pretty early here in Ireland.

Apr 11, 2005 06:00 PM Pooling the car

We got the car yesterday. It was the poolcar, because we had to drive to Ireland by car and then do a switch like we did in Southern France.
We also ordered ticket to take the boat from Fishguard (Wales) to Rosslare (Ireland). We would have to take the boat at 14.30 hours because the next one would be at 2.45 hours (AM that is).
But, in order to get there in time, we got up at 5.30 AM. It was early, but we managed it. At 7.59 AM we already took the train through the tunnel towards England.
The trip went well, accept for the ring around London, we got trapped in a one traffic jam after another and on top of it I took the wrong exit because of traffic works. But the GPS helped us out just fin e :o).
So at 13.30 hours exactly, we checked in...exactly on time (because you had to be there one hour in advance). The boattrip took 3h30...something we comepletely didn't suspect. Anyway, at 18.00h we arrived at Ireland. We drove in the direction of Cork, where we would meet the other team, went to some restaurant to eat and eventually got into a nice Bed & Breakfast around 20.00 hours.

Apr 02, 2005 06:00 PM Back from Maloja

And we're back...we have been skiing for 3 days, had loooot's of fun, made lot's of new friends and met lot's of new people... I can't say it enough: I just love Maloja!!

Anyway, on tuesday the 12th Wouter and I will leave for Ireland for another month. So this week will be filled with social contacts :o)

Mar 25, 2005 09:00 PM Maloja here we come again

5.30am...we are standing in the trainstation of Dendermonde and the first youngsters are starting to arrive. We will leave with 181 children and 22 leaders.
This can't go wrong...YES, again to MALOJAAAAA!!! I just love to be there!!

Mar 21, 2005 09:00 PM Almost @ home

At noon we met the other team. Two nice girls who had been through a lot of adventures themselves. It was the first time ever we really met another Flemish team. So we talked quite a lot and then switched cars.
We left around 1pm I guess and were at home around 10pm. Which was obviously nice, because we had driven over 1000km's.
Finally we were back home...ready to start another adventure!! :o)

Mar 20, 2005 09:00 PM Shopping!!

We have been in Spain and even Andorra a few times, to finish of the Pyrenees. At last, yesterday we took ourselfs a day off and today we went looking for a place to clean out the mobile home. It wasn't easy at first, but eventually we found what we had been looking for and cleaned for a couple of hours. The camper was nice and shiny afterwards :o)
We also went shopping. We went to a big mall we had been beofre, because we knew they had the kinda things we wanted: wine, ham, paté, etc...
We have been degustating a couple of wines and bought ourselves quite a lot of them...hey it's good for you health, so why not?
And after that we went to the parking place we would meet the other team. This team would come with a Fiat Scudo (our pool-car) and we would switch cars (and everything we own of course).

Mar 17, 2005 09:00 PM Almost finished

We have finished of the coast and are now doing the Pyrenees. Awsome viewings, I must admit. It's also my first times I got into Spain. Not really special of course, because I barely touched the border and went back into France.
Anyway, today we stopped at around 15 hours, just to enjoy the sun. After an hour or so there was a police vehicle which stopped behind our camper and 3 officers came out and started to inspect the vehicle. Because I was enjoing the sun from a cople of meters higher up the hill in the grass, I had seen them comming.
We (for the 100.000th time) told them what the cameras were for and what we did. Always friendly people, who come and ask us what it's for, but after so many times it starts to become a pain in the ass.
There was once a guy who stopped at a red light, jumped out of his car and walked towards us. He then started to talk, but it all sounded really messed up...he had probably taken drugs or so, because it wasn't really normal. I sent him back to his car and he luckily did...damn weirdo ;o)
Many people wave in front of the cameras you know. Quite funny sometimes. The most funniest was a very small old car, full of young people, and the moment they passed us, the were all hanging out of the car in some way (through the roof, through the window, etc) with arms, hands or even faces, waving at us. Too bad I can't find the picture anymore.
In a couple of days, we will be switched. We've been calling the office a couple of times and there's a team which will meet us on a parking area and then we will switch cars. They are driving the pool-car (as it is called) and they'll get all there stuff into the camper, while we get ours out and into the pool-car. The thing is, the team is Flemish and therefor deserves somewhat more respect.
But we have been doing the whole coast of Southern France. With other words, they will be comming towards the Southern part of France with the idea to be able to lay on the beach a couple of times...but actually they will never have to reach the beach at all...and what's more...we are now finishing off the Pyrenees, so even those mountain-areas won't be done by them...I hope they'll not be too pissed.
When we will be back at home, I'll have just a couple of days to pack my bags again, because I'm going on a camp to Maloja in Switserland...

Mar 13, 2005 09:00 PM last!!

It's been a couple of days that we have been working many hours. We moved away from Marseille and Aix-en-Provence (which by the way is a very ugly area...there's dirt and garbage all over the place and there are gypsies which make it all way worse).
We got more west and out of the Alps and at the beginning of the Pyrenees. There hasn't much happened lately, we've enjoyed sunshine a couple of hours on the beach at 'La Grande Motte' and are now standing on a camping (finally, after looking for one a very long time).
I did pull the handle off the trash-water-basin. You should know that this is a basin which you can open and close with a handle on the outside of the camper. But by opening, it came all the way down, with handle and everything. So, there's now a big opening in our basin and any dishwater or so, simply runs out of the camper. :o)
Oh yeah, there is something important I would like to say. A friend of mine asked if I would be interested to start a bussiness with him. In the tourist-sector. I'm very much interested, but much needs to be discussed...we'll see what happens...

Mar 07, 2005 09:00 PM Feared Marseille

I thought Marseille would be a nightmare. So I started with fear. But we drove all thay and there was nothing about it. Just keep your eyes open, learn to drive the way they drive in Marseille and don't worry about much and you'll make it.
We almost finished off whole Marseille in one day. The only thing we would need to do is some highways and we would be able to leave Marseille. Great, because I don't really find the city interesting. It's too busy...
