Going via Hull, picking up Tool and the Hobbit... Leaving Hull via P&O Ferry Monday night, arrive in Rotterdam Tuesday AM... blast to the Berggasthof Banzer Wald, in Bad Staffelstein. (say that 3 times in a row quickly) Shoot. Win. Return Tuesday to catch ferry back Tuesday Eve, for arrival in blighty Weds morning... Assuming we don't have to sellotape Calp's vanity case to the roof which will create drag, we should be looking at under £300 each for the ferry, fuel and hotel, with just fodder to look for each day. Calps has offered his toenails for nourishment should we be really stuck... i think Tool has offered liquid refreshments buti think just a short ferry trip isn't going to see a valid excuse for that... Our scale model world champion is flying out via gatwick on the monday via easy jet... not sure where to. He's staying with the welsh. Hope he takes carpet cleaner.
