7 weeks to go!!!

Welcome to our blog! We are busy, busy, busy! One of the living rooms has been converted into the "camping room" The piles of tents, sleeping bags, folding chairs, gas cookers, bags and chilly bins are piling up. The stuff we can't take back to NZ is being made ready for the carboot sales/Ebay. There are maps on the walls with pins in important places, and Lonely planet & camping guides galore.
Are we ready???? Not nearly!!!! Seems our lovely tent is not as waterproof as we thought, so we have to sell it and get a new, budget conscious one, plus the idea of sleeping on the floor turned out to be a bad one as Belgium proved!
We also joined a camping club which allows us to pay no more than €15 anywhere for a campsite. Plus the added benefit of insurance in case we burn the campsite down...
Anyway, will keep up to date with where we are at, and will try update the blog when we're travelling too.
