The Syria thing is really starting to get on my nerves. Its going to ruin the whole thing. Firstly it made the ferry cancel that route. Now its making it almost impossible to consider crossing Syria. We could spend a few more months than planned pottering round Europe and east Europe praying that they can sort something out that stops the shooting but its winter ! the whole point of goign now was so its not too hot in North Africa. Should we go West Coast or ship to South America ? ARGH !!!!!!
