I can’t quite believe it. For two years Brian has been secretly planning this mega trip to Europe. And now it’s almost over.
Europe has been every bit as wonderful as we hoped it would be. Just gorgeous.
In case you’re new to the show, let me give you a quick recap of what the past five months have looked like. The things you might have missed.
We picked up a vintage car from the UK in May (that Brian purchased off the internet while he was still in New Zealand) We drove through Belgium, France, and Italy and then got a ferry to Greece where we picked our kids up from Athens and sailed to the Greek Island of Paros for a month. The car had lots of niggly problems, but we won’t go into that now. Bri feels fragile enough as it is.
The kids flew from Greece back to the UK, and we drove back through Europe to England. The car had some troubles. It blew up. I know that Brian will say that it didn’t, but he’s lying. It did.
We waited for the car to be fixed, visited lots of family members and then drove back to Tuscany to housesit for six weeks. We looked after a sweet little cat in a wonderful house overlooking the Mediterranean in the town of Porto Santo Stefano. It was divine. If you haven’t yet signed up to be a housesitter, then you want your head reading. It’s brill.
We drove back from Italy, over the French Alps and are now sitting in our car outside an Airbnb in Calais making this podcast for you.
Tomorrow we will cross the border of France and return to England. The Queen has died, a close family member is not well, and if we can’t sell the car in the next two weeks, then we stand to lose twenty grand. Oh, and it looks as though we will have to enter Thailand illegally.
Other than that everything is hunky dory.
