Day 1

We've on way!!! At large in Belgium at the moment, heading for Germany. Missed the ferry from Dover yesterday - by four hours and got fined - but got on the 2000hrs crossing and found a place to stay in Dunkerque.,

Bikes are going well, we're staying off motorways for the time being but the engines are loosening up nicely. Just hope they don't loosen up too much and fall out though. And its stopped raining although it was a bit drizzely when we first set off this morning.


Have had some very funny moments already when people have asked where we're off to. Somehow " China" doesn't seem to be the answer they are expecting - a woman in the petrol station nearly choked yesterday, but she recovered quite quickly.

Today, somewhere in Belgium
