So, I would like to say the ferry from Portsmouth to Santander was uneventful but I got a wee bit ill!

I was sooooo sure I would be fine for the crossing as I had coped when we sailed to Amsterdam back in November but obviously it makes a difference when you're drunk and oblivious to the huge waves! By 7pm on the ferry I was just about finished my dinner when the sea sickness kicked in. Managed to get back to the cabin, undressed and into bed. Clag was sent for travel sickness pill from the Information desk and that seemed to work as it sent me to sleep and the sickness feeling went. I am proud to say that I wasn't actually sick - managed to hold onto the expensive 3 course dinner we had just eaten! Never have been one to waste food........ FG

Arrived at 1st campsite in Luarca on the Northern coast of Spain without any hitches quite astonishingly. We are pitched on a cliff top looking out over the sea and the views are stunning although it is quite breezy. Done a bit of walking, beat my kick up record that i set when i was 14 and we are just generally relaxing. Were sitting waiting to watch the Arsenal game last night at the campsite but they couldn't get a signal (even though they sent Rod Hull on to the roof to try and sort it!)
We are moving onto A Coruna in the North West tomorrow and will hopefully find another decent campsite but with a bit more tail!! CG

...we have been to Alton Towers - great fun only the new ride wasn't open, boo.

Wembley on Sunday - had a good day - thanks to Claire and Paul for a great weekend and putting us up or should that be putting up with us!

In Portsmouth now - ferry tomorrow to Spain. I hope the weather is better than here as it is lashing down. FG

Alton Towers was good apart from Thirteen being closed because it was spitting.
Had a spot on day in that London at Wembley apart from the game itself obviously, choking bunch of dickheads.
Ferry tomorrow, it could get choppy and that's just our relationship!
Hoping to catch Arsenal v Barca on Wednesday and upset the natives, i wonder if the Pride of Cumbria will fly all the way out for me! Adios Cocknockers. CG
