Once more we had to be saved, this time by an Irish chap called Neil who kindly shared his lunch with us. We had refused to pay 6 pounds each for a sarnie near the border crossing so whilst we had some chocolate and crisps there was nothing substantial
I had to laugh when during our bus journey (no toilets anywhere to be seen for a lot of the time) Caroline was so desperate she asked me to get the bus driver to stop, which he did. Caroline ended up having a tinkle behind the bus on the highway ..I tried to protect her dignity with my fleece but luckily only the nearby cows took interest.
On route we also saw osteriches (well tiny versions of) and lots of cute baby lambs (its spring here). Fortunately, they did not have to see Caroline waving her bum in the air.
Ho hum, is it any wonder my sleeping patterns are warped with all these weird and wonderful sleeping times.
p.s. forgot to mention the guide laughed as we crossed a bridge and said ´phew we made it´. Apparently the roadworks next to us were the start of a new bridge as the old one was no longer considered safe!
