Kel blogging today! So much daylight in the UK!  Its light at 5am and still light at 9pm.  Even though we were awake at 5am, I totally refused to get out of bed until 5:30am. Had a lovely shower at Carls and a nice cup of tea.  Had a light come on the dash of the motorhome.  I've named the motorhome 'Charlie Helios’. The manual stated that it wasnt a good light to come on incase the engine went into lymp mode.  Found a dealer and it was only a small problem so got that all sorted.  Made our way to Dover which was about a 1.5hr drive.  Spent a few hours at Dover looking around and even did our first tourist attraction... the Dover Castle.  I bought some fruit and YUM!  The strawberries were something else!  Way better than aussie strawberries!  From Dover we caught the Ferry across the English Channel to France . My goodness that was interesting!  A few security check points, they looked through Charlie Helios and asked us a few questions about where we are going.  There were lots of trucks, cars, motorhomes and wanabe cyclists in their sexy lycra!  A lot of everything happening everywhere!  It was all go.  But it was great to park Charlie Helios and make our way to the top deck of the Ferry for an expensive crappy meal and just relax for 90min and let the world pass us by.  I was hoping to see a whale or a dolphin but nothing... just lots of big cargo ships.  But we made it to France and found an awesome campsite...totally awesome!  Bonjour to France!

Hey guy's
Wow it is really strange being on the other end of the Travel Pod screen. It must be time to hit the road again. Great stuff nice camper and the stories have started already. Remember, hang loose in the saddle. Oh and make sure the French know you are Australian's as they are more receptive when the know you are not English. Bonjour!

Hey Trav, Happy Birthday it is Saturday ( very early in the morning) here and July 10. I did get up as one little dog was banging on the laundry door.I think you should know who that is. My dog just makes a quiet little cry. Luckily I was awake anyway as it is a really windy night with a storm.
I thought the girls might have got blown away as they took terms doing a wee.
Have a great Euro birthday and watch the driving. Take care Luv ya.
