before we leave
Well we have just over one week before we set off on our extended holiday to Kalymnos. It is our favourite Greek Island in the Dodecanese.
We leave on the 5th May 2012 and will be home on the 25th October 2012, almost 6 months.
We had a family gathering on Sunday to say farewell to people, we went for a curry to the Bengal Tiger restaurant in Fence near Burnley. I will put a couple of photos on of the people who came.
Our trip starts from Hull, we will get the ferry to Zebrugge Belgium. When we land we will drive through Luxembourg and travel to Colmar, Alsace Lorraine in France where we will stay overnight. We travel then through Switzerland to northern Italy and have booked accomodation in Bergamo for the night, after a restful night we then travel down Italy to Vasto and stay there for the night before driving to Bari for the overnight ferry to Patras in Greece. a short drive then to Piraeus for the final ferry to Kalymnos. Quite a journey but it should be enjoyable. We decided to make this journey rather than flying directly because we are taking Jasper with us. He is our 3 year old Cocker Spaniel who wouldn't do well in cargo on a plane.
We have a busy time befoe we go, catching up with people before we go and this of course involves socialising a plenty!!
