'Henrietta made it to Denmark and has another flag. We came here on a surprise visit to see Henning. It was a very BIG surprise. Henning came home from work and we were sat outside his apartment. A few cryptic facebook messages and it suddenly dawned on him we were outside and not on our way to Africa. We are actually still on a way but with this little detour. 550 miles and a 34 Euro each way on the bridge. Luckily we got class 2 for the camper-van otherwise its nearly 80 Euro each way! That would have be enough to reconsider the visit and turn round.
Still learning how to use the new camera so the selfies are rubbish. Some shots in Copenhagen and of the expensive bridge. The trip to Ikea Sweden for an free "Family Card" tea is cancelled as that's nearly 100 Euro return so the free tea and that extra overlandstickers Sweden flag doesn't quite add up in trip budget terms.
So that's it. The end of the first blog entry for the new trip. I'm sure they will get better...maybe not.
I'm sorry to say that my beloved #Crocs are no more. The company has just shut its last manufacturing facility in Italy. I wept a little when I heard this news and am in fact devastated! If #Craghoppers went the same way i'm not sure i could carry on being an #overlander. Its not enough that my famous Craghoppers blue fleece is on its "last legs", the burn marks from the many nights of camp fires, oil stains from the days under the truck. For my loved Crocs to be vanishing is unacceptable. I have one pair in reserve but before long they will be worn out too. What should i do. My wife, as they do, has tried to move me over to Birkinstock's but i'm not a Pringle jumper wearing "golfer" so that is just out of the question. I'm too old for flip-flops, I've tried them, they just look wrong on a middle aged man. Should i grow dreadlocks next? So whats a man to do? I think i might cancel the trip......
