Well we ahd done it as I write this and I am sipping the most expensive champagne we could find to amrk the occasion (no really its good stuff!!!).
We set off into the capital in Lientenstien tog et our apssports stamoed up and boy did we get some stamps. We then decided to get some souvenirs and I brought some gifts for the famil I hope they like them they were good value I thought.
Once we had finished our shopping we headed off enroute fo Luxembourg. We dedciedd to avoid toll roads as we have now established that the fench really like to rip you off when it xomes to tolls! We ended up in some country towns which were nice but hen it came to getting fuel my French skills were tested to the max with a automatic machine which you had to putyour card in first and then dispense fuel…we’ll see if I was successful when the bill comes in!
We were making fairly good time including the mcdonalds stop ubtil we got stuck in traffic 26km from the border! We had been stuck about 15mins when I suggested to Dale that we start a singing fest an entertain our fellow traffic goers! This was great fun and mad eht e hour long queue whizz by, We provided much amusement for all the foreigners who were quite confused with it all and I suspect reported us for drugs use as we probably appeared high!
Keeping it simple we put faith in the tomtom and went to the first recommended campsite on the list and it was in Luxembourg. We made it there ok and the nice lady only wanted €12 to camp for the night bargain and we got our own pitch and tape it looks ACE! As it is the 28th day we needed to get 34 countries! But…seeing as we have been sneaky we actually already have done 34 an Belgium was to be our 35th ( we went into Czech rep enroute else where earlier in the trip :-p) we headed over the border and got some nice young men to take lots of photos of us celebrating with the flag and a sign showing our triumph!
To celebrate we have brought the fine champagne I am drinking now and also some nice chicken skewers were delicious apart from the one I am worried had nuts in.
All in all a successful trip and we hope we have raised lots of money for bath RUH NICU! :D
