It's getting a bit exciting now...

Last day at work

sunny 14 °C

So today is my last day at work! Holiday time officially starts at 4pm today (or 3:30pm if I can get away early)
So while I'm skiving I thought I'd write a wee update on our plans.

The van is currently at the garage having the wiper linkage fixed. We couldn't source the part ourselves so ordered one from the dealer. Should get the T-unit back Monday and then its a week of final preparations!

Since I last updated, we've been to "the caravan shop" on great western road TWICE. We're sorted out for our toilet chemicals, gas cannister and hook up cable. I think the only thing we need to pick up now is a basin for grey water.

Bought new speakers (as there was only noise coming out one speaker) last weekend, we thought this would solve our problems. It didn't :/ I'm convinced it's something to do with the headunit so after pulling it out and seeing the MESS of wires that was in behind it, i'm pretty sure. So when the van is back in our possession it'll be up to me to have a bash at wiring it up correctly. Oh dear...

Rucksack, memory cards, camera gear, chargers have all been purchased. We're just ready to pack our bags and load up the van now!

Off to pick up a France LonelyPlanet guide today - we're worried we miss out on stuff and want to know what should not be missed! Paris campsite is booked so we've got three days there before we head up for the ferry on the 2nd Sept.

Arranged to meet up with Ben and Sarah in Nice and then all head up to Grand Canyon Du Verdon the next day. The second largest canyon in the world. It looks beautiful and i'm sure i'll be snap happy!

Planning is coming along nicely, but we both just want to go now. It's been such a long time coming we can't wait to get away!
