Very Latest Updates and rants. Latest at the bottom
We Finally left little house Alvor, Nigel and Sue, our friends who let us have it for two months, (then it jumped to 5).. Have some bookings at last as Covid seems to be on the wain. So off to a campsite, .or sites, depending how we feel. All covered in the main blog,
As by now, anybody reading part or all of our blog Knows we are seasoned travellers, covering thousands of miles and 6 years doing it, mostly all year. Very rarely do we need advise, but we cant know it all..I like to think I do..but her indoors really is the Brain around here.
We have been in Portugal for approx 6 months, this time, 3 awaiting the outcome of Covid 19.. and its effects on Travel. While doing that we went down with the Virus….
Teresa had it mildly, Me !! really bad..3 days completely off my feet in bed, two of which I dont remember, Soaked to the skin in sweat, and hallucinating, apparently..but I busted through it, Many have not..apart from these symptoms..The Cough is the thing I am likely never to forget..coughed so much for so long!! everything in my body ached took me another 3 weeks to completely shake it all off… Anyway I digress…
Now !!! i have to write this little Gem
As i said seasoned travellers are us !! but with the uncertainty of onward travel to get back to UK..which we know we can do. Teresa decided to ask on one of the Facebook sites she follows,,a great source of info from like minded campers. or most !! about travelling back to UK this week, have they done it and what’s open and what’s a problem, or might be. . and the response we got back was great..and very helpful.. Except for one..there’s always one !!!..
(Quote) Perhaps you should have gone to specsavers, like Dominic Cummings before you went there (Unquote)
Well to be fair..after we stopped Laughing..I got to thinking..Who are these people with Narrow minds, no manners and no decency or compassion for their fellow travellers, friends, or anybody in General..
Answer ?? They are the watchers !! people who report you if your milk bottle is not the same as theirs, Report you if your kid doesn’t have the right school uniform report you for parking your motorhome more than 5 mins in a beauty spot or lay-by..report you, about just about anything and everything they can get their tiny minds around.. or more likely cant !!
Any way the admin of the site took it down..They have a warning about those type of negative posts.. So guess they didn’t read that bit …ha ah…
And finally..This is not about someone quipping at us..but about Negative comments in general.
Morral ?? if you can’t help, Please shut the F**k up..
I dont believe for a moment Covid will go away quickly..but Governments will make it appear to do so..especially as now they are Hurting Financially,
Money before Health.. I predicted in a previous blog, that they would try and dig there way out of it, it as soon as Monetary costs became apparent. As i mentioned before.. We are sticking it out, here at Mikkis place.
Waiting for the covid restrictions to be lifted for travel Border wise, Going to make a break for UK.We tried two weeks ago and could not get through Spanish/Portuguese Border,
We know we can go now..but two weeks total quarantine in our own county, when also coming from a country with one of the best covid containment’s in the world, is not only annoying..but ludicrous.
What for !!! the Horse has bolted.. Dumb Asses!!..should have done that back in March..a bit late when over 3 million… people have entered, left, re-entered since then..and 40 thousand plus have departed the planet in the UK alone..
Are these people who make the rules, real ?? do they really live amongst us?? how can they make such hair brained decisions and stay in there job?? Because they are putting millions out of theirs..amd millions more at Risk.
And why are we coming back from such a great place ??
We have an unfinished narrow boat to do..so we can Cruise the Waterways of Britain next year.. and start Voyagers first Adventure.
Hope fully after writing this website..I will be able to do it more imforativly. and less political..as well …But I doubt it !! Although this brexit section is just for that purpose, and a Diary of my thoughts for later..Travelling info and Trustys adventures aside.
Its now Friday the 19/06/2020 Looking at the news, we definitely wont be moving towards UK until mid july. Already dozens of conflicting fake news reports, or just downright poorly sourced, and written..Journalists nowadays, seem to write what they hear without checking any facts whatsoever, or more crimminaly. Make it up !!! The BBC Being one of the worst of them. so watch this space if any of it comes home to you..or if it doesn’t, go and get the PC back from off the lawn were you chucked it in anger.it might still work.. TTFN
Strike that idea mid July. its already too hot to bare so of back to UK
Well Gripe time again..Remember !! thats what this page is for.
Its the 1/07/2020 Wednesday were sitting on a lovely campsite in Normandy waiting to see if we can board a train with trusty to get back home..in 2 days time. 2 weeks lockdown shite is still with us..Crazy..too late…. too late !!! now we have to fill in online forms or we cant get on the train..
Can’t fill it in before 48 hours of your departure..and arrival into UK. another bunch of madness..your passport might not have your address on it, but it sure as hell is registered with the passport office. they know where you live.
So why all this crap.. They are locking down Leicester, and anywhere else it breaks out..While unlocking other places willy nilly, Gonna need a lot of Keys methinks..
Completed the two forms..and got a Reference number to board the train..so all being well we will be on our way tomorrow night to good of blighty…
Just heard on the news Bo Jo may be scrapping the 2 weeks quarantine in two weeks time. Ahhhhg !!! Fat Pratt. I voted or help vote the twat in, Thinking he would be the best bet to get Britain out of the EU., but judging by how hes handled this covid crap..Im now worried for the first time, about Britain’s Future. No I dont want us to go back in Either !!.. lets hope he can sort it..better than his track record on Covid. I have never known a Government so Crap at the right decisions.. Oh ? Wait a minute ! Teresa Mays !!!
