Wi-FI! At Last!
Notwithstanding the catastrophic Fin Failure, this has to be considered a pretty successful day. Fin lasted 180 miles of French motorway before detaching itself, fortunately no police reports were needed!
8 Hours in the car today was not as fun as we expected, those boring french motorways took their toll.
'Unexpected stops': 3 (Fin, Sun Visor, Temperature)
Missing Parts: 1 (Fin)
Alcohol consumed: 1 bottle champers, 6 bottles Kronenbourg, 4 pints Kronenbourg (writing this from pub in Basel so make that at least 10 by end of evening)
Hotel rooms booked for tonight: 0 (its now 20:38 and the town is booked out - arts festival.)
Ex-workmates who now live in Basel unexpectedly bumped into in Irish Bar tonight: 1 (Mark you are a lifesaver, thanke for the floorspace!) Friggin Yorkshire Folk everywhere!!!!!!! What's the chances!? LOVE EM!!!
Scally Rally Teams who have left all their passports on a picnic at the services table 4 hours back into France and are currently driving back to try to find them: 1 (also from Leeds!)
We also have photos but the distance from this pub to the car (and SD Card reader) is too much to be arsed to get em, will upload later!
And on to Como tomorrow, wish us luck!...
